Apparently Google is not a big shot in China, then again, neither is any other Western company. In china things are locked up, with domestic grown businesses given first priority; and not by the forces of the market, the forces of the law authorities.
That aside, Baidu, the biggest search engine in China has released its smart speakers. The device will give Google Home and Amazon Echo a run for their money; and if you know anything about Chinese products, they often retail affordable.
The speaker is called Raven H, and much like the other smart speakers, it is voice-activated and powered by an artificial intelligence platform. The Raven H also marks Baidu’s first move into the AI-space, and the company is promising consumers it will churn out more products soon.
‘Humans & machines have been interacting w/ one another for years, but raven H aims to create a world in which this interaction is seamless.’ – Cheng (Jesse) Lyu, Raven founder & Baidu GM https://t.co/2lrqrxtgUs#BaiduWorld ~*Bring #AI to Life*~ pic.twitter.com/HQFun4bKmR
