“Cheap. Low quality. Not safe.”

     These are the words and phrases that we often hear whenever the subject of chinese or “made in china” products are brought up. The bad perception of the products coming out of China is a result of the combined influence of consumer experience and the influence of the media. Besides, low-quality products are also produced by low-cost countries like Vietnam, India or Bangladesh. 

Before, products such as tea, furniture and dishware like plates from China were considered to be unique and with cultural value, but when the country became a world factory for a large variety of items, catering to almost all of our needs, people changed their views. Other issues that emerged such as the lead content of the paint in toys at dangerous levels in 2007, and the melamine found in milk back in 2008, further influenced the views of consumers all over the world when it comes to Chinese products. Even with the various improvements and innovations presented by the manufacturers in the country, the bad perception on their products did not seem to die down. Even in the case of the current global pandemic, people are inclined more to the vaccines produced by other countries and would choose to ignore what is produced in China despite the reviews and recommendations of experts on its efficiency rate against the SARS-Cov-2 virus.  

Consumers’ mindsets almost always assume a product’s price as the direct indicator of its quality, but that is not always the case. Competitive pricing is actually influenced by supply chain costs and augmenting profits than it does the objective quality of a product. Business owners generally have a better understanding of this. Hence, the products are not of lesser quality, just with a lower price.

China’s economy has grown over the past several decades from relying on its agricultural sector to becoming the world’s leading manufacturer. They used to have a poor reputation on working conditions and low wages of employees, but legislation by the government over the years forced factories to improve employee rights, processes, quality control and worker training.

 On the other hand, some still do not know that big brands such as Apple, Armani, Nike, Adidas and many more are actually made in China. You may ask, “Why in China?” This country actually has much to offer aside from it’s workforce. They actually have great abundance and access to raw materials compared to other countries. Furthermore, the favorable tax laws also allow for less expensive exports. 

So Atlas Creative Group, a holding, logistics and distribution company with a global presence made a vital step in the growth of the company when it decided to establish it’s China hub. Founder Daniel Philip was seeking to establish a main distribution line and product source for the growing number of brands the company represents. China seemed to be a viable option despite the bad perception of its products, as the pros actually outweigh the cons. 

As mentioned earlier, this country also churns out high quality products, as there are factories that can produce products to a wide range of different quality standards. It all comes down to the demands one places on these factories and how much one is willing to spend on better materials and quality control. As Daniel was able to hire a great team, tying up with factories that can cater to the growing demands of the company was not an easy feat, but they overcame those hurdles. By setting up the main product source of the company, streamlining the distribution of the products to its sites around the world, such as the USA, Latvia, Netherlands, Brazil, Indonesia, India and the Philippines, operations became more efficient and with lesser costs due to the favorable tax laws of the country. 

The global pandemic that has been dragging on since the past year did affect logistics and distribution as many countries around the world imposed lockdowns to prevent the spread of Covid-19, but with the efforts of the team in China, the effects were minimal for the brands under ACG. Hence, despite the dwindling economies all over the world, the brands represented by the company were able to thrive, as products continuously arrived to the doorsteps of the consumers. Without the China hub, the operations of the company would have been greatly hampered and could have also felt the adverse effects of the pandemic on its commercial endeavors. 

Further, the high quality products being distributed by the company to various locations in the world from China will help to slowly break the stereotype given to Chinese products, as it seeks to change the image of “Made in China”.

With jewelry brands such as Cuzette, Monteza, La Hera, Palmpe, Lavenne, Olesca, Bonali and Vonachi, the company seeks to cater to every style, character, moreso the diversity of beauty in the world. Also with swimwear brands namely Swim Nova and Sandflair, that also tries to highlight the beauty of the body of every woman. And of course, Vente Smile exists to bring out the beautiful smiles that most people hide because they are ashamed of their teeth. As more and more brands are being represented by ACG, the team in China is necessary to keep everything on the move.

This is going to be a productive year for Atlas Creative Group as it aims to open its first retail shop in Canggu, Bali, Indonesia this month despite the hurdles of the global pandemic. They also aim to open more retail shops in other international locations within the year, which is definitely a big leap for the company. 

Delving into a scheme where many have failed in the past several months is not an easy task. Their team works diligently, coupled with their perseverance and drive to achieve the goals of their founder who shares the same values, there is no risk or challenge that they will not take on. If you wish to learn from Daniel, or work with him in starting your commerce business journey, do not hesitate to send him a message and then be prepared for a great ride towards your dream. As he once said, “I believe we were created and therefore we create. When we create it brings us close to knowing who we are and what our purpose is meant to be.”

Atlas Creative Group is a growing community that’s constantly looking for modern, unusual, unconventional, unpredictable, crazy ideas and suggestions all around the world from individuals who are motivated and passionate about their own self growth whether you wanna be a CEO or tap into sales and marketing. It’s a creative community that’s constantly presenting opportunities. 

Leading a big community is not a one-man show, there are so many factors that come with that responsibility and that’s why having unity, trust, belief, discipline and persistence are fundamental values that are crucial in maintaining the growth of the business. If you’re looking to learn from Daniel or partner with him to start your own venture or scale your commerce business, be sure to send Daniel a message and get started.

Building the Future of Personalized AI Experiences 



Search engine algorithms are always changing to deliver relevant results to people searching the internet. Voice search is a feature that has had the potential to enhance the search experience for nearly a decade with the introduction of Siri, and there has been slow but steady progress since. Even still, everyday tech users are often dissatisfied with conversational artificial intelligence (AI) software, especially as the expectation of personalized experiences grows.

Too many users hit the limit of voice AI, experiencing the frustration Siri or Alexa not understanding who “the rock is.” Furthermore, each time you make a search it is as if it forgot entirely what you just asked. The synthesized voice coming from a virtual assistant might sound human, but the actual brain underneath is impossible to mistake for being human. The fundamental approach underpinning current approaches to voice assistant cannot ever achieve a true dialogue capable AI.

Can AI Voice Assistants Improve Lives?

Machine virtual assistants, like website chatbots and voice-command applications on smart devices, help save time by delivering results to questions and curiosities. Bots do this through artificial intelligence, using a set of insights from previous data gathered over time. 

Global search engines like Google are seeing a rapid increase in verbal command search. 27% of people who conduct searches on Google do so by using voice search, whether through Siri, Alexa, Microsoft’s Cortana or Google Voice Search.

Voice search has traditionally been implemented by transcribing speech to text and then just executing a traditional text search. However this fails quickly because people do not speak the same way they type. Systems built to execute searches from text cannot handle the dynamic language that is used as part of speaking. As tech companies attempt to improve conversational AI to meet growing demands, it’s an exercise in agility and innovation, requiring coordination between search algorithms and the latest AI capabilities. All whilst being willing to unload baggage from text based systems.

Conversational AI Systems

Conversational AI allows people to interact with machines in a way that resembles human-to-human communication. By processing information and generating a relevant response, it can provide quick results or insights. Fundamentally these systems are built by distilling spoken language into a form that a computer can understand. This is done through what is called Natural Language Understanding. Classical systems do this by breaking out the keywords inside the spoken text and trying to determine what the user’s intent is and what key phrases they are mentioning. “Find me an action movie” has the intent of executing a stream search and “action” “movie” are the keywords within the text to help refine the search. 

Conversational AI Systems take this a step further and allow for multiple turns of conversation. This forms a dialogue giving a user the perception that they are interacting with a human on the other end. 

The Future of Artificial Speech Intelligence

Rather than trying to bolt-on outdated methods, one of the most advanced voice assistant technologies started from scratch. MeetKai Inc. is currently operating at the cutting edge of voice AI for personalized recommendations and lifestyle assistance, with “Kai” as the world’s first AI concierge, a personified machine that learns a person’s preferences to deliver unique recommendations based on who they are and what they might like. In a world where research for everything from a movie to a menu could be endless, this is a powerful resource.

Developers at MeetKai have done the due diligence, building a proprietary system that is unlike comparable voice AI technologies in the market. While they are still at the early stages of building out their offering, they have demonstrated that they do not have the same ceiling that other companies out there are facing. They align with overarching industry goals to make AI more of what people need:

  • Conversational. Smarter machine learning allows for better back-and-forth dialogue between human and machine. 
  • Contextual. As of now, popular conversational AI loses context as soon as the initial query is over. By building new voice search technology apps to have multi-turn technology, the virtual assistant can maintain the flow of conversation while remembering the original question. This delivers more sensible responses to follow-up questions, and brings user intent into growing machine learning processes.
  • Personal. Integrated voice-command apps allow personalized, conversational searches that will deliver better results to the individual. By remembering user behaviors and preferences, it will suggest individualized options rather than proposing the same results for everyone who asks a similar question. 
  • Account for negation. What if virtual assistant AI could provide smart results while excluding the types of answers people don’t want to see? For example, asking an app, “What is a good meatless crock pot recipe?” will only show recipes in results that are meat-free. Or stating, “Show me a Will Ferrell movie that isn’t like Elf” would deliver results excluding the unwanted film. 

Voice Search Technology Apps

There will be more to come in the creation of apps specifically designed to satisfy consumer needs and preferences in these areas. Developers are finally starting to bridge the gap between search engines and voice AI.

Leaders in this space understand the assignment: “We want to create a voice AI that is capable of interpreting your requests in a more human language, while also remembering your tastes and preferences, putting back the personal in personal assistant” says James Kaplan, leading innovator and founder of MeetKai. He believes that pushing the limits of AI to make speech technology more contextual and personalized is key to seeing this type of technology serve the world in ways it’s supposed to. As the machines we use each day get smarter, we all stand to gain.
