The first Innovation Conference of Turing Robot was held in China National Convention Center on July 28, 2016. Thousands of audience from media, business partners and other AI and robotic experts attended to view the technical break-through of Turing Robot.
After a short review of the achievements Turing Robot made for the first half of 2016, Yu Zhichen, CEO of Turing Robot released an updated version of his robot operating system: Turing OS Version 1.5, with an added visual ability to the former edition. As an intelligent robot operating system built on the basis of simulating thinking mode and emotional recognition of human beings, Turing OS provides natural and friendly multimode human-machine interaction methods for robots companies. It contains a thinking enhancement engine, an affective computing engine and a self-learning engine. The new version endowed the robots with an upgraded user experience in human-machine interaction, giving customers one more good reason to purchase robots for their family.
Then comes the highlight of the conference: the official launching of Turing Robot Application Project. Besides the official applications including Robots' Chatting, Automatic Camera, Robots Singing and English Read-after, the platform is totally free and open to developers to build their won apps on and Weather Report, Dictionary and Music Playlist were taken for a start. This way, robots can be more capable in replacing humans of what they do, and do even better in the future.
Last but not least, Turing Robot AI Service Platform also made a great progress in its core technology, including initiative interaction, emotional model, visual ability and so on, which greatly improve the interaction ability of robots, and willings of users to chat with their robots. As the most intelligent robot brain under Chinese semantics, Turing Robot open platform has till now won over 220,000 enterprise & developer users. Its AI service covers Chinese semantic analysis, NLP and more, satisfying the needs of multiple intelligence-based software and hardware products.
As was commented by Senior Editor from MIT-TR, Will Knight, in his exclusive article about Turing Robot, "Supplying the intelligence for home robots could be a shrewd move. Scores of Chinese companies are making robots meant for use in the home. This is part of a larger push within China, backed by the government, to create a homegrown robotics industry." The vision of Turing Robot is clear and persistent: to bring robots into every ordinary family, which is a bold yet not impossible dream to pursue. And after the Innovation Conference, the company seems to get closer to what they all strive for.
