In the past two years, Xiaomi attaches great importance to the exploration of technology, and has also set up a technology award selected annually, which has previously been won by the fast charging team and the MIUI privacy protection team, and each team has received millions of dollars in rewards.
This afternoon, Lei Jun posted that the group held an annual technology award ceremony on the first day of work, and this year there were 68 entries, and the highest award was won by the CyberDog Iron Egg Four-legged Bionic Robot Team.
Lei Jun also stressed that this team gave him three super surprises, one of which was that the Iron Egg team had two fresh master's graduates recruited in 2020. These two students joined Xiaomi for only one year and won Xiaomi's highest technical award.
The second is that the iron egg project brings together the technology of many of the group's R & D teams, and these technologies are quickly applied to core products, such as the new computational photography technology "All Things Focusing" function equipped with Xiaomi 12 from the iron egg, which promotes the development of Xiaomi products.
The third point is because the Iron Egg project represents the bold pioneering spirit, amazing self-driving force and imagination of Xiaomi engineers for future technological life. With such a small team and such an achievement in such a short period of time, it is really far beyond imagination.
Lei Jun said that "technology-oriented" is the iron law that Xiaomi never changes, and the engineer culture is the background color in Xiaomi's genes. Ensuring the sense of accomplishment and happiness of engineers is the top priority of the Group and the hope for the Group's sustainable development in the future.
According to reports, Xiaomi will unswervingly continue to increase R & D investment, within 5 years the group's R & D investment will exceed 100 billion yuan. At the same time, Xiaomi will continue to promote the "Young Engineer Equity Incentive Plan" to provide the best remuneration for outstanding engineers
In addition, Lei Jun also said that he would strengthen the construction of the engineer team and continue to recruit 5,000 outstanding young engineers in 2022.
