iFLYTEK Subsidiary Provides Assistive Devices for the Disabled

AIBLETECH, a subsidiary of iFLYTEK, has been working to develop assistive devices based on artificial intelligence (AI) technologies for the disabled.

On October 11, China Central Television (CCTV) reported on the state of China’s assistive device industry. It was found that the disabled community had gradually shifted from standard assistive devices to customized versions that have aided in the social development quality of living for the users.

Su Ying, the general manager of AIBLETECH, said in the CCTV interview that, “The mid-to-high-end assistive device industry is capital- and technology-intensive, requiring high investment and involving a long cycle from technology to products and services. We have found a strong demand. While the technology problems can be solved through some period of research and development, we are facing greater difficulties in industrialization and marketing.”

In terms of research and development, AIBLETECH has jointly established a laboratory with the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), with an aim to conduct research in core frontline AI and robot technologies and then translate the technologies into production.

Sun Shuaishuai, a researcher in the laboratory from the School of Engineering Science, USTC, is highly confident about the future development of assistive devices. He said, “High-end assistive devices involve a lot of issues regarding practical application. We have collected feedback from hospitals and the doctors have provided us with professional suggestions and instructions.”

By continuously conducting technological research, AIBLETECH aims to provide quality assistive devices; guarantee safe, targeted and efficient rehabilitative exercises of disabled people like the hearing- and visually-impaired, and help everyone who uses their product live better through the harnessing of AI technologies.
