On May 15, 2019, the opening ceremony of Microsoft artificial intelligence and Internet of things laboratory was held in Zhangjiang artificial intelligence island. Guan Xiaojun, vice president of Pudong New Area, Ke Ruijie, senior vice president of Microsoft global, chairman and CEO of Greater China, rashmi Misra, head of global artificial intelligence and mixed reality business development of Microsoft, Yuan Tao, Secretary of Party committee and chairman of Zhangjiang group, and many other Jiajia Bin participated in the opening ceremony.
As one of the first batch of selected enterprises, ruff Nanchao technology stands out among more than 300 application enterprises and becomes the first batch of aiot enterprises to settle in Microsoft artificial intelligence and Internet of things laboratory. It is reported that there are 30 first batch of settled enterprises, including Shanghai ABB Engineering Co., Ltd., Pan Asia Automotive Technology Center Co., Ltd., Shanghai Yuncong technology and a large number of outstanding enterprises in the field of science and technology.
This time, ruff’s selected projects mainly focus on the field of face recognition, including ruff face ID raf-g1, ruff face ID raf-m1, ruff’s intelligent access terminal, and ruff face ID raf-m1, which use ruff’s underlying technology and development ability in the field of the Internet of things to highly integrate the special AI chip in the Internet of things scene, and use the convolution God of machine vision and voice recognition ability Through the network, it can realize offline face recognition and edge computing in low-power scenarios, achieve 0.1s fast unlocking, and provide cloud service interface SDK to support the convenient development and integration of access control and door lock manufacturers.
In the future, ruff will enjoy the support provided by the laboratory in many aspects, including hardware facilities, technical guidance, business support, market docking, innovation and upgrading, etc., and work with Microsoft to realize the technical realization and business landing of face recognition in more scenes, including the algorithm analysis and model establishment of cloud artificial intelligence.
It is believed that with the empowerment of Microsoft artificial intelligence and Internet of things laboratory, ruff’s face recognition related products will land in real scene faster and make the application of aiot technology simpler.
