at present ,TWS The headset is still a heavy one “ listen ” Function hardware of , But with Microsoft 、 Baidu and other Internet companies enter ,TWS The era of artificial intelligence interaction has come , Headphones not only listen to , And say .
12 month 29 Japan , Sunrise big data will be held in Crowne Plaza Hotel Shenzhen Shenzhen TWS Developer Conference and TWS Industrial leaders summit , When the , Microsoft （ China ） Chief technical consultant, Ltd Guan Zhen Come to the scene , publish 《 How does AI help headphones understand users 》 keynote speech .
TWS Headphones talk ？ At first glance to , Maybe it's hard for you and me to believe , But Guan Zhen told data Jun , Microsoft's artificial intelligence technology has been able to achieve this , It's just that the hardware hasn't landed yet .
Guan Zhen speaks frankly , Microsoft has a deep accumulation of AI interaction technology , But it didn't really land TWS The headset , We need more cooperation with industry chain enterprises .“ We only have technical imagination , A lot of imagination combined with hardware is beyond Microsoft's imagination , Hopefully, with the help of this global TWS The developer conference is pushing , Spark with more industry chain colleagues .” Guan Zhen said .
TWS+ Artificial intelligence
Microsoft's accumulation and precipitation in artificial intelligence technology , be applied to TWS Headphones make it an entry point for voice interaction , There is infinite room for imagination .
“ One is the understanding from phonetics to semantics , namely Speech To Text, Artificial intelligence turns human voice into words accurately ; Second, highly analog voice output , That is to say Text To Speech, AI's output sound is not machine sound , It's fear 、 happy 、 Fidgety 、 There are more than ten kinds of emotional voices, such as sad voice ; Third, understand the interactive content , Users can have multiple rounds of dialogue with AI in the same scene , Layers of depth , Until the problem is solved .” Guan Zhen said .
In short , Microsoft's AI technology can be based on deep understanding of the content , Enhance the experience of voice interaction .
in other words , When you're wearing headphones and talking to AI , It's like communicating with someone with a lot of emotions , The movie 《Her》 Medium “ Virtual girlfriend ” It seems to be very close , Give you unexpected answers in a more humane way when you ask questions , It's exciting to think about it. .
Of course , It's not something anyone can do . Compared to common TWS manufacturer , Internet company 、 AI technology companies are implementing TWS It's more intelligent .
“ It's not that easy to do , No Internet platform support , The final function is not that good .”12 month 11 Japan , Tang Leiguang, general manager of earphone business of Shenzhen sannuo Digital Technology Co., Ltd TWS When translating headphones, it means .
2019 year , Microsoft has released a TWS The headset Surface Earbuds, except 60 The function of national translation 、 And support Microsoft Microsoft Teams、Office 365 service , Besides, there are Cortana Voice assistant .
It's just a regular Microsoft model TWS The headset , Although there are Cortana Voice assistant , But it's not AI voice interaction , because Cortana And apple siri、 Huawei Xiaoyi is a task-based interaction , That is, ask and answer , Perform a single task , It's impossible to form multiple rounds of dialogue , Of course , This is also a common drawback of intelligent voice assistant .
What Microsoft can achieve , It is to form multiple rounds of effective communication in specific situations , Promote a problem solving .
“ Like I was at the airport , Wearing headphones to execute from buying tickets , Choose a place 、 Selection of shipping space 、 Choose a special package and then pay , The dialogue with AI will be progressive , If you ask a question, wake up and ask again , It's not as convenient as manual operation .” Guan Zhen said with a smile .
Artificial intelligence + Content service
With TWS Headphones are becoming more intelligent , The combination of artificial intelligence interaction technology and content services has already started . Cool dog, for example TWS Music headset 、 The Himalayan TWS Earphone for listening to books 、 Baidu translation TWS The headset ……
however , Apple 、 Huawei 、 millet 、 Samsung and other mobile phone brands dominate TWS The market for headphones is very competitive , White Brand low-end market price is hot , Content and Internet companies are involved , Do you really want to make money by selling headphones ？
Guan Zhen said , The ultimate goal of content vendors is to make money from content services . Although content vendors and hardware vendors are working with each other to launch APP Deeply bound TWS The headset , It can be operated by voice APP Most of the features , But in the future , Content vendors will provide their own content services SDK Open to all TWS Headphone manufacturers .
Or guess , All brands in the future TWS The headphones will not only connect to the Himalayas , And access to cool dog 、QQ music 、 Netease cloud music and other mobile content APP.
“ future TWS Content service is the combination of ability and ability , It's not who owns who .” Guan Zhen said , In his opinion , Microsoft's artificial intelligence interaction technology can assist content services to enable TWS The headset , Both sides can help each other .
loose coupling Or tight coupling
at present , Apple 、 Huawei and other brand mobile phone manufacturers , We are all working hard to serve , Extended hardware products , Content services are mainly integrated on mobile phones .
“TWS The headset still needs to be connected to the phone , Even if the watch can be plugged in eSIM The card becomes an independent intelligent terminal , But for most people who rely on mobile phones , I'm still used to connecting my cell phone .” Xiaoya intelligence TWS After the release of listening earphone , The first time datajun called the Himalayan middle level , The other side told datajun that .
But in Guan Zhen's opinion , Content services can be put on mobile phones , It can also be put in headphones 、 Cloud 、5G The base station .
“ Cloud edge may be a hybrid mode in the future , It can be designed according to the scene and different needs TWS The technical architecture of the application .” That means ,TWS It's not impossible for headphones to get off the phone , contrary , There is a lot of imagination in different specific scenes .
“ future TWS The relationship between headphones and mobile phones , It's loose coupling , Noncompact coupling .” Guan Zhen said , If it's tight coupling , Manufacturers want to put all around IOT The product is bundled on the mobile phone , But the scene is limited , For example, wearing TWS You have to take your cell phone with you when you run ; If it's loosely coupled , It doesn't have to be mobile phone centric , As long as the back end has content service support , In certain situations TWS Headphones can perform specific functions independently , Like running with only one TWS The headset , Come into the factory without a cell phone 、 use TWS Headphones replace walkie talkie ……
12 month 29 Japan , Guan Zhen will come to The global TWS Developer conference , In depth analysis of Microsoft's contribution to AI and TWS The future of headphone Integration , Details of the meeting are as follows .
