Sogou, a new partnership for an e-book reader

Sogou has already used artificial intelligence technologies, including speech synthesis and image detection

Soon our e-reader reader will also become intelligent. Sogou, the second largest search engine in China, has entered into a strategic partnership with Zhangyue Technology, listed in Shanghai and the developer of iReader, an e-book reader like the Kindle, an app that offers pay-novels to-view. For this reason, Sogou will develop two readers of AI videos based on Zhangyue. The goal is to apply artificial intelligence technologies in the field of online literature.

Sogou has already used artificial intelligence technologies, including speech synthesis and image detection with the Xinhua news agency. An English-language news presenter and a Chinese-language artificial intelligence are in daily use on Xinhua’s website since November 2018.

Sogou’s explorations beyond the media sector can be seen as an attempt to commercialize his artificial intelligence technologies

The company, which has Tencent as one of its largest shareholders, reported revenues of $ 303.6 million in the second quarter of this year, an increase of 1% on an annual basis, of which $ 276.2 million from research and related revenues, which represent a 2% year-on-year increase.

However, the commercialization of advanced artificial intelligence technologies is still a challenge for startups and large companies like the largest Chinese search engine Baidu. It is in fact trying to market its autonomous driving technologies with a fleet of 10-vehicle robo-taxis in Changsha, the capital of the Hunan province of central China.
