Huawei Announces Intent Framework for HarmonyOS NEXT: Sensing User Actions, Proactively Recommending Services

At HDC2024, Huawei introduced the intent framework brought by the HarmonyOS NEXT system, which can actively sense user operation intentions and intelligently recommend card services that users need through the system entrance.

This feature is mainly applied in the scenarios of the Xiaoyi smart assistant and the desktop Xiaoyi service card, supporting both user-initiated search and service call, as well as service proactive recommendation and suggestion. The specific implementation scenarios are as follows:

Contextual Recommendations

  • Habit Recommendations
  • Event Recommendations
  • Location Recommendations

User-Initiated Use

  • Skill Call
  • Local Search

Xiaoyi Assistant

According to the introduction, the Xiaoyi assistant will provide multi-modal semantic interaction and automatic orchestration execution functions. Users can actively search for the required services through the Xiaoyi smart assistant, click to use them, or send operation instructions via voice.

Xiaoyi Suggestions

The Xiaoyi suggestion card will combine user understanding and environmental perception to proactively recommend scenario service cards, covering driving, travel, meetings, hospitals, subway stations, scenic spots, etc.

Xiaoyi suggestions also support learning based on time patterns, location characteristics, device status, and event information, and recommend relevant services.
