Xiaomi invests in Artificial Intelligence technology and the Internet of Things, supporting more than 220 companies in the industry. In addition, Chinese companies have built headquarters in Wuhan which will have the sole purpose of developing smart technology and products.
In turn, IKEA invests in all smart homes, but the development of intelligent platforms as a whole takes time and is expensive. That's why the partnership with the IT industry giant seems like a logical step, but who has ever thought of Xiaomi?
But that's how it is. At the China conference, Xiaomi's partnership with IKEA was announced in various fields such as Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things. Understanding is global, but in the first stage will be applied in China and Asia respectively.
Actually, the two companies will collaborate in making smart products that are useful for men at home and household. In addition, the existing IKEA smart home products will be controlled via a smart phone right next month through Mijia and Xiao AI's voice assistants. All will be integrated into the Xiaomi IoT platform, which means they will have the same ecosystem.
This partnership was announced to be long-lasting and likely to be applied only in countries where both companies have or will have an official presence.
