How the low-profile Tencent is laying out the Internet of Things


The Internet of Things is the trend, and the future era of the Internet of Everything is getting closer and closer. Whether it's a big company, a small company or a startup, everyone is actively laying out the IoT, and some have already made their initial IoTization. Today we'll talk about what Tencent, a company, is doing to prepare for the Internet of Everything era.

As many of you know, in April 2012, Ma had a conversation with Kevin Kelly (KK), editor-in-chief of the famous Wired magazine and author of "Out of Control". At this conversation, Ma asked KK a question: "The whole Internet for the world, which stage of it humanity is already in, and are there many more stages behind it? Or in the short term, what stage can we reach in the next ten years? "

KK replied, "The Internet of Things will be a trend that will change in this industry in the future. We will see a further increase in the number of terminals, and a further increase in the number of servers. Although there are many people building server farms with tens of millions of servers, probably in the future everyone will have one of their own inside the cloud. If you look at us now, we are just at the beginning of such a process. "

So, two years later, in October 2014, Tencent launched QQ IOT - Smart Hardware Open Platform.

QQ IOT-Intelligent Hardware Open Platform

The first paragraph on the home page of QQ IOT's website is its introduction.

QQ IOT Smart Hardware Open Platform provides core capabilities such as QQ account system and relationship chain, QQ message channel capabilities to partners in wearable devices, smart homes, smart cars, traditional hardware and other fields, realizing interconnection and interaction between users and devices and between devices and equipment, making full use of and taking advantage of Tencent QQ's billions of mobile phone clients and cloud services to help traditional industries achieve Internetization on a larger scale.

The goal of QQ IOT is to make every hardware device into a user's QQ friend, dedicated to helping traditional hardware quickly transform into smart hardware, which is still in the public test phase and not open access.

Why is Tencent using the QQ format for hardware device connectivity?

firstly Ma Huateng has always stressed that Tencent should be the connector of the Internet, to be the connector of the Internet, not only need to connect people, but also to connect services and devices.

secondlyThe hardware device will be connected and controlled without additional downloads of other APPs, because with more and more APPs in the user's phone, people are very tired of new downloads of APPs, and it is a great advantage if new features can be integrated into the APP that the user originally used at high frequencies, and there is no doubt that Tencent has such an advantage and ability, and the hardware device developer does not need to invest resources in designing, developing, maintaining and promoting the device's APP.

How to connect smart hardware to QQ IoT platform?

Devices that want to access the QQ IOT platform need to apply for the public test and pass it, then embed QQ's SDK or integration module in the hardware and turn it into smart hardware that can be connected to the QQ IOT platform. There are then two ways to connect your device to QQ: automatically discovering new devices nearby and tying them, and scanning the QR code of your device with QQ and tying it. The device then becomes a friend of the QQ user.

This allows the user to operate the device from within QQ.

Of course, hardware developers who still want to design their own app to implement more and more complex features are also allowed to do so, and QQ here just provides a device base framework capability.

In addition, QQ IoT will gradually open up more advanced capabilities.

Of course, in addition to the second, Tencent also has a layout in the field of AI

Tencent AI Labfounded in2016 year4 month, in2017 year1 The month brought in former New Jersey State University professor、IBM Researcher of the Institute、 Director Researcher, Yahoo Research Institute, Dr. Tong Zhang, Vice President of Baidu Research Institute and Head of Big Data Lab, is the Director of the Lab, A lot of notable successes have been achieved, As studied by Tencent GoAI“ tour-de-force” In countries such asAI Winner of various Go tournaments such as Dragon Star Battle, Have a loud reputation。 And in order to recruit moreAI talent, Tencent on2017 year5 Seattle, USA was established in JanuaryAI labs, Appointed Dr. Yu Dong, a top expert in speech recognition technology, as head of the lab, currently Tencent AI Lab Dozens of papers have been published。

Tencent UtopiaThe team was founded in 2012, focusing on technology development and business implementation in the fields of image processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, data mining, etc. It has been nearly 5 years since. In April 2017, in MegaFace, the most authoritative and difficult international database of massive face recognition, Tencent Youtu Lab came out on top in the 1 million level face recognition test with the latest score of 83.290%, and has now cooperated with a number of hospitals to apply image processing technology to the field of image recognition in the medical industry.

WeChat AI Dedicated to revolutionizing the development of artificial intelligence technologies such as speech recognition, natural language processing, computer vision, data mining and machine learning. The research on natural language processing is dedicated to enabling machines to imitate human "thinking", understand human speech and answer human thoughts; the research on image and video is dedicated to enabling machines to cognize the world visually through text recognition, face recognition, content understanding and augmented reality; the research on data mining and document understanding relies on the content of WeChat public platform articles and focuses on topic clustering analysis, information classification, unstructured knowledge extraction, text understanding and hotspot tracking; the distributed machine learning platform is used to support the training of machine learning and deep learning algorithms in WeChat AI research.

I'm sure those of you who have used WeChat have experienced WeChat AI The convenience brought to us:

Voice. (a) When sending WeChat, you can convert voice input to text.

Swipe. You can scan the QR code/barcode to identify information; scan the cover to identify books and provide purchase information and connections; scan the street view to identify your surroundings and know where you are; scan the translation to help identify words you don't know.

Chatbots. The Sage II machine monk can tease you with poverty, talk with you, be your sidekick, be your little brood of knowledge, and talk to you about the great wisdom of the Master.

Shake the Music/TV.Users can shake the music/TV to get various details about the music/programs around them.

Voice lock.Users can use their unique voice to form a natural encryption protection for data information.

WeChat AI In addition to supporting the good user experience of WeChat itself, It also opens up the voice intelligence interface、 Image Intelligence Interface、 Semantic Intelligence Interface, WeChat support is currently available、 drip cab (of a taxi)、QQ songs、 Tencent Maps and other apps。

In addition Tencent has laid out the Tencent Blockchain in order to build the cornerstone of trust in the digital economy

During its long-term development and evolution, IoT has encountered the following 5 industry pain points: device security, personal privacy, architectural rigidity, communication compatibility, and multi-subject collaboration 5 major pain points. Blockchain can help break the shackles of multiple existing information silos in the Internet of Things and promote horizontal flow of information and multi-party collaboration by virtue of its characteristics such as peer-to-peer, open and transparent, secure communication, difficult to tamper with and multi-party consensus. Therefore the importance of blockchain for IoT cannot be overstated.

Tencent launched Tencent Blockchain in 2017, advocating an autonomous and controllable blockchain infrastructure to build secure and efficient solutions based on scenarios. Build value connectors for companies and organizations to jointly drive the development of the Internet of Value. There are four main application scenarios, namely: digital assets, forensic proof, shared ledger and sharing economy. It is currently in internal testing and has released its BaSS (Blockchain as a Service: Blockchain as a Service) service platform.

In the process of finishing Tencent's IoT-related services, I deeply feel that Tencent's timely follow-up of new technologies and deep understanding of scenarios as well as its thinking about the ultimate user experience of its products.
