Dyson to continue its hiring efforts and make machines that self-improve

Jake Dyson, Chief Engineer at Dyson, gives an update on Dyson’s five-year investment plan, including plans for self-improving products using software and data science to solve problems even before the owner gets to know about them.
Dyson to continue hiring software engineers and data scientists across its facilities
Last year, Dyson announced the plan to recruit robotics engineers, and this also the company will continue focusing on hiring efforts, recruiting new software developers and data scientists in the software team, which increased by ten-fold in the last decade.
The company is readying its pipeline for the next 10 to 15 years to come
Jake Dyson-led team of software engineers have a new generation of smart products under development that would suffice for the coming 10 to 15 years.
The next-generation products currently under development are connected, intelligent, self-improving machines. Jake Dyson says that software and connectivity are the core of its future product pipeline as the company invests its £2.75 billion fund in new technologies.
Next-generation Dyson products will “self-improve” with time
Dyson machines currently use a number of sensors, electronics, control systems, and layers of software code, making them increasingly clever. Now, the company’s mission is to make machines that become intelligent over time, being able to self-identify problems and resolve them even before the owner gets to learn that something is wrong.
The engineering team at Dyson ten folded in a decade
Over the last 10 years, the software and connectivity team at Dyson in the UK, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, China, and Poland has grown more than 10 times its original size. This company has been focusing on advancing the “brain” of Dyson machines.
The company gives an example of its “360 Heurist robot vacuum,” which does not require the user to walk around the home having to vacuum themselves; the robot handles everything.
The company, in a press statement, says that “Dyson is growing out its capabilities with data science, which are core to Dyson’s purification and air science education.”
