Hello Mi Fans!
For those MIUI Geeks out there, the official opening ceremony of MIUI 10 was held just yesterday! This, however, means that a major part of research and development efforts of the MIUI Team will be shifted from MIUI 9 to MIUI 10.
The MIUI 9 was marketed as an OS significantly faster than its predecessors and had its themed as "Lightning Fast". While simultaneously slimming down its baggage on processing speeds built upon the Android's OS, a number of user functions have been streamlined - this totalled to over 50 system functions being removed!
Additionally, there have been many discontents over how MIUI 9 was only provided to the newer versions of Xiaomi Phones, leaving out older ones from the updates. Last week, Xiaomi announced that it would be pushing the MIUI 9 update to almost all its models, including the Redmi 2 & 2s series - phones that were released almost 5 years ago!

Currently, MIUI 10 & MIUI X are featured keywords by Baidu due to the high search volume of these words. However, only brief information has been released about the MIUI 10 - its focus will primarily be on artificial intelligence & machine dialogue. Also, a Xiaomi's voice assistant may be developed in MIUI 10 as well.
Other established AI-related features include Amazon's Alexa, Apple's Siri, Google's Assistant.
Do you think Xiaomi will be able to develop something that is able to compete with these giants? Or has it lagged behind the competition of artificial intelligence?
