Artificial intelligence is one of the trends of recent years. Is there any benefit in its presence of a smartphone and which devices are most interesting in the modern market in our article.
annually Mobile manufacturers come up with new chips for gadgets to interest buyers. Starting from 2017, artificial intelligence begins to enter into the life of the owners of smartphones, and after a year, support appears not only in expensive devices, but also a medium-level device.
for which Need artificial intelligence
It is worth understanding that the analogues of the AI were before, but then "intellectuality" was reduced to software solutions - there were various types voice assistants. Since 2017, processors have become equipped with a dedicated AI unit (reduction from Artifactual Intelligence), which solves a number of tasks at the hardware level. These include the following functions:
- Improving photos - Device online understands which object the user removes and from the scene laid in it selects the optimal conditions for creating a frame. And this is just one of the examples of AI in the chambers.
- Security - it is not only about the recognition of the person, but also processing the data directly on the smartphone, without sending them to the clouds, as it was before. That is, now information is heavier to steal or intercept.
- Optimization of work - Smart chipset analyzes how the user works with his gadget, which applications run more often, where it holds more time and on the basis of this optimizes processes to increase performance.
- Increased autonomy - by analyzing the actions of the user AI understands which applications it uses more often, and which software is inactive. The first applications chipset does not unload out of memory, and their work is given to the sputter of a more productive nucleus, and the second category is forcibly turned off, without spending resources.
The work of artificial intelligence is not limited to this. The tasks can be attributed to the task AR applications, smart purchases, online translators and much more. But the most prominent results of users can still be seen in the above categories. It should be understood that all processes are simplified and in fact everything is arranged more difficult.
When choosing a smartphone with AI, it should be understood that today there is no lack of models. Their cost varies and think that the device for 15 thousand has the same AI, as well as a device for 60 thousand incorrectly. Moreover, the term "artificial intelligence" is wide and confused with "machine learning" or "neural networks" incorrectly. AI is the operation of the highlighted block placed in the chipseet. Machine training and neural networks are a collection of information and software processing that improves the speed of queries. A simple example of their action - the more often the user starts the application, the faster it will be loaded.
Many manufacturers in the release of devices are chitryat and indicate the characteristics of the availability of AI, but this does not guarantee the entire list of features. With a probability of 99% in low-cost AI smartphones, it is used to improve the operation of the chamber and face recognition.
In our top there were no popular devices such as iPhone xs, samsung S10, Huawei P30 and others Flags due to the fact that once again telling about their merits is boring and most readers are familiar with them. Instead, we chose several devices not so popular and in different price segments. It is worth understanding that each of them has their own capabilities of what we tried to tell a little more.
