As said by Albert Einstein, “Out of clutter, find simplicity; from discord, find harmony; in the middle of difficulties, like the opportunity.”
Indeed, the daily life experiences with traditional home appliances are endless burdens, and time-, energy- and strength-consuming repeated work. Only with the power of technology, we can provide people with comfortable, smart user experiences and effectively reduce household burdens. However, in some specific activities such as cooking, there is joy of creation and appreciation. Suresh’s task is to remove burdensome repeated work and refine shining joy and pleasure with the AI technology.
Suresh has led the team to identify three key pillars that help empower COLMO home appliances with AI, including Harmonized Interaction, Deep Learning, and Expert System, integrate three advanced AI technologies and shape new daily life scenarios.
The example shared by Suresh come from the upcoming epochal COLMO products. COLMO home appliances adept at deep learning will actively think about user demands for the first time. With the understanding and analysis of user habits, demand and preference, we no longer operate home appliances simply, but will have a familiar, wise partner in life.
Suresh believes, the AI technology will first empower a long-overlooked life field: Cloth cleaning. As complex, diverse modern lifestyles and consumer choices have resulted in a variety of cloth textures, fabrics and techniques, criteria for judgment on cloth cleanliness is elevated to an unprecedented height. However, most manufacturers have still put undue emphasis on capacity and power in response to the consumer demand. After all, unlike the stomach, naked eyes cannot immediately judge cleanliness of clothes washed by the machine.
To lead consumers to a new realm of home appliances, a strong multinational R&D team formed by the Suresh-led COLMO Emerging Technology Center and Washing Machine Smart Technology Research Institute in Shenzhen are actively innovating the home appliance industry. They have empowered washing machine products with vision recognition, deep learning and big data expert system as never before, actively understood user demands, and created a new realm in cloth cleaning.
Imagine an upcoming washing scenario: The user does not need to think hard about complex procedures and button combinations, and merely puts a heavy heap of clothes mixed in with different grades, textures and techniques into the COLMO washing machine. The machine will open “eyes” — a top “Smart Vision” feature — to judge cloth types, colors and volume quickly and accurately in the mixture through AI image recognition, determine the washing mode and detergent use on its own, adjust stream velocity and temperature curve dynamically in washing, and detect detergent residues anytime. From now on, staining, wearing and detergent residues in washing will become a thing of the past. Covering all the bases, AI-powered home appliances will even have new difficulty solved easily: What should you do if you carelessly put jeans and a fragile silk scarf into the washing machine at the same time? The COLMO washing machine will control different washing forces based on accurate judgement, do complete cleaning and protect each cloth.
More surprisingly, Suresh has not stopped at the objective of cloth cleaning in the COLMO washing machine R&D. To reach a new realm of deep learning, he and COLMO have used thousands of types of clothes as learning “materials”, collected and marked more than 100,000 complex image samples for AI model training, and become a top expert in the washing machine field!
As a result of the joint technology efforts and combined with deep experience of thousands of washing industry experts, the COLMO washing machine has the “strongest brain” with unprecedented wisdom and realize triple awakening, i.e. vision, thinking and awareness of learning.
Now, the COLMO washing machine has mastered more than 3,000 washing modes, far more than dozens seen in traditional washing machines. In the meanwhile, the studious COLMO washing machine maintains the habit of continuous learning like Suresh. In the future, with the access to massive samples in the COLMO cloud-based database, algorithm correction plans will be continuously input into the washing machine’s brain, so the machine can competently deal with any form of cloth states. Moreover, user information about each washing process will be archived at the COLMO database and a cloud application geared to the user will be updated in sync, thus allowing the COLMO washing machine to stay at the top level of washing machines.
The life scenario shaped by the COLMO washing machine is only one of the fascinating values of rationalism maximized by the COLMO brain enabled with deep learning.
Suresh, keen on mountaineering, obviously understands the logic of climbing high: The first products created by him and COLMO have only blown the trumpet of reaching the top of home appliances. Suresh is modest and sober. In his view, COLMO has fantastically taken the first step and will move forward: Create an ideal globally-integrated life through COLMO product iteration.
