Today, the first day of the group, the group held the annual technology award ceremony, first of all, warm congratulations to all the winning teams! Every time I participate in the selection of Xiaomi million DOLLAR technology Award, I am very excited. This year is the third. Seeing this year's list of winners is full of weight and talents, I am especially proud of xiaomi engineers!
The 68 entries in this year's award are all outstanding and of high standard, especially the top award winner, CyberDog Iron egg quadruped bionic robot team. The team gave me three super surprises:
First of all, there are two new master's degree graduates recruited by the university in 2020. These two students joined Xiaomi only one year, they won the highest technical award of Xiaomi, really a hero out of a teenager, great! Here, I strongly suggest that all departments boldly employ young and outstanding talents and include the training and appointment of "young heroes" in the evaluation indicators of organizational capacity building of all departments in the future.
Second, the Iron Egg project brought together the technologies of many r&d teams of the Group, and these technologies were quickly applied to our core products. Tiedan's "master tracking" feature, a new computing photography technology on Mi 12 that has been widely praised by users, comes from tiedan's "master tracking" technology.
Third, The Iron Egg project represents the bold pioneering spirit, amazing self-drive and imagination of Xiaomi's engineers for the future of technological life. Ironegg is a self-organizing, self-funded project of engineers in pursuit of really cool technology. With such a small team, in such a short time to come up with such a result, really far beyond our imagination.
"Technology-based" is the iron law that xiaomi will never change, and engineer culture is the background color in xiaomi's DNA. To ensure the sense of achievement and happiness of engineers is the top priority of the Group, and also the hope of sustainable development of the group in the future. First of all, we will unswervingly continue to increase investment in RESEARCH and development. Within 5 years, the group's investment in research and development will exceed 100 billion yuan. At the same time, we will continue to promote the "Young Engineers Equity Incentive Plan" to provide excellent engineers with the best compensation; We will continue to provide more training, job transfer, innovation and pre-research projects to give our engineers more space to play and give every crazy idea a chance to try. In addition, we will strengthen the construction of our engineering team, and we will continue to recruit 5,000 outstanding young engineers in 2022.
At present, Xiaomi is at the critical moment of starting its journey in the new decade. We are faced with a series of major propositions that will determine xiaomi's future and destiny: ranking first in mobile phones in the world in three years, officially competing with Apple for product experience, AIoT ecology in full operation, and intelligent vehicle-related business in preparation. Turbulent times, more heroic qualities, this is millet engineers show their skills in the broad space. We must firmly establish confidence, firmly continue to struggle, never live up to the expectations of rice fans. Xiaomi engineers come on!
