iFLYTEK Showcasing Superbrain Robotic Platform at China Humanoid Robot Ecological Conference, Heralding New Trends of Intelligent Interaction

The grand opening of China Humanoid Robot Ecological Conference (CHREC 2024) unfolded at Shanghai Intelligence Valley Industrial Park on April 2, 2024. The conference, themed “Human-Machine Integration: Paving the Way for an Intelligent Future”, delved into the trajectory of humanoid robot research, aiming to secure a leading position in scientific and technological advancement and future development. iFLYTEK showcased its Superbrain Robotic Platform at the event, delivering a keynote speech that demonstrated a multi-modal interaction system based on Spark Desk.


Liu Kewei, R&D Director of iFLYTEK Open Platform, delivered a keynote speech titled “Multi-modal + Large Model: Pioneering New Interaction for Humanoid Robots” at the conference. He highlighted that iFLYTEK Superbrain Robotic Platform represents a robot development platform leveraging iFLYTEK Superbrain 2030 Technology across physical, virtual, and meta-universal realms. With core features including an AI capability nebula, multi-modal interaction, large model utilisation, model training, and asset generation, the platform empowers developers to swiftly adapt across various scenarios while possessing a robust knowledge base and innate self-evolution capabilities.




With the advancement of large model technology, humanoid robots, especially embodied intelligence, have emerged as a prominent trend. Confronting the demands for diverse functionalities, specialised tasks, natural interactions, and intelligent decision-making, iFLYTEK Superbrain Robotic Platform pioneers novel interactions for humanoid robots through two pivotal avenues: terminal multi-modal interaction and large-model understanding and decision-making. Firstly, by integrating audio-visual perception, a new paradigm of robot interaction unfolds, encompassing initiation, sustained engagement, dynamic interaction control, and conclusion. Secondly, leveraging large models, the robotic interactive intelligence unifies diverse interaction scenarios, including control-level commands, official skills, core business functions, rapid knowledge exchange, and casual conversation. Furthermore, a virtual human interface protocol is opened up, which caters the access requirements of various digital personas. Envisioning a future where AI propels the growth of the robotics industry, iFLYTEK Superbrain Robotic Platform aims to make robots widely available in households worldwide.


At the event, iFLYTEK’s demonstration of its Superbrain Robotic Platform multi-modal human-computer interaction system captivated the attention of numerous attendees. This system addresses the intricate challenges of robot perception, communication, comprehension, and cognition in noisy environments, showcasing iFLYTEK cutting-edge multi-modal algorithms. Enabled by the system, robots cannot only perform basic functions like speech recognition and natural language processing, but also, notably, excel in capturing user voices amidst crowded and noisy service environments. Leveraging iFLYTEK Spark Desk, the system deeply analyses natural language semantics to accurately decipher user intentions.




Meanwhile, iFLYTEK anthropomorphic speech technology enhances robots’ language responses, enabling more humane and natural communication with users. Currently, iFLYTEK multi-modal interaction system has found extensive applications across various devices, including digital human all-in-one machines, commercial and domestic service robots. Its role in enabling advancements is particularly prominent in the realms of smart home, retail, and education.

CHREC 2024 not only showcased technological advancements but also delved into the nuanced trajectory of the humanoid robotics development. Experts engaged in profound discussions on various topics including the new wave of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation, emerging trends in humanoid robotics, robot technology R&D, and the development of innovative industry-academia-research collaborations. By fostering a platform for communication and collaboration, it fuels innovation and progress within the humanoid robot industry while creating opportunities for attendees to think about potential intelligent interaction in the future. With ongoing advancements in artificial intelligence, iFLYTEK is charting a course towards a future where intelligent robots seamlessly integrate into households, propelled by its innovative multi-modal human-computer interaction system.
