Interview: Artificial intelligence in smartphones, what is it for?
Artificial intelligence (AI) will be at the center of great investments, opportunities and profits. That’s what analysts are saying and what’s happening in the realm of smartphones, online platforms and the Internet of Things confirms it.
For the most incredulous, studies confirm it. The total revenue of the global artificial intelligence (AI) market, including software, hardware and services, will increase by 19.6% this year, reaching 6,961,054,560 pesos (Mexican pesos).
In this game, the world of smartphones is not left out. AI has become a crucial tool for the sector, with algorithms that allow the creation of increasingly powerful devices and with much more advanced processing proposals that promote photographic performance, connectivity, energy efficiency and reading data.
But in reality, how complex is the use of artificial intelligence in smartphones? Do we really understand how it is used? What advantages does it offer the end user?
Artificial intelligence in smartphones
To answer these questions, Unocero spoke with the team at vivo, a smartphone company that has made a strong commitment to using artificial intelligence in the development and operation of its devices.
Unocero: Without going into technical details, how can we take advantage of the benefits of AI in the manufacture and operation of a smartphone?
“Artificial intelligence (AI) applies different disciplines such as mathematics, computer science and even neuroscience to develop technologies that mimic human thought and enable automated and autonomous processes. Smartphone makers are leveraging AI to improve photo quality, improve power efficiency by closing unnecessary background apps, protect battery health by optimizing charging time, and predict app usage to improve the user experience. As a result, the efficiency of the device is maximized”
Unocero: What is the current performance status of AI solutions in the smartphone market?
“The development and implementation of AI in the smartphone industry has great potential as these technologies are still relatively new in the market. The integration of AI in smartphones started with the improvement of photography and video capabilities and the activation of virtual assistants. Currently, AI can increase the autonomy of devices by adapting to user preferences. For example, it can suggest certain applications at different times of the day after have detected and learned from the daily habits of the user.
Unocero: How will this integration evolve and what is its potential in the near future?
“In addition to ongoing efforts to refine photo and video processing, AI’s greatest potential lies in the new user experiences that smartphones will deliver in the near future. Using AI, the device can adapt to user preferences to improve performance and battery life, and that’s just the beginning. Vivo engineers predict that AI performance will increase, bringing many tech visions to life.
We expect to see further advances in natural language processing and computer vision, as well as optimizing smartphone performance through dynamic and intelligent resource allocation. Other promising areas are intelligent scheduling of computing power and optimization of energy consumption. Another interesting application is in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem.
The smartphone will be able to improve the user experience by extending its automation to smart devices such as washing machines, lights, vacuum cleaners and more. For example, when it detects that the user has left the house, the smartphone can automatically turn off devices such as screens and lights. Or, when the user is about to go home, the smartphone can instruct devices to start playing music or turn on lights. Similarly, virtual assistants will also gradually improve with the help of AI. The next steps will be recognizing not only user commands, but also tone of voice, and even emotions, to achieve better context understanding and deliver better results with every interaction.”
