Artificial Intelligence on smartphones is one of the biggest trends to look out for in the upcoming years. While AI has numerous uses, on a handheld device, the benefits will be limited initially.
The camera is one of the key areas phone makers are working on with respect to AI. Using AI, the phone’s camera interface can detect the subject in the camera frame (landscape, food, fireworks etc.) and accordingly adjust the settings for the best possible image. AI can also identify facial features and automatically enhance them for a superior portrait.
There are translation apps available that let take an image with text in one language to another language. However, these apps use the Internet to upload the image for analysis
and then translation. With onboard AI, the phone will be capable of translating different languages in real-time without the need for Internet connection.
Voice Assistants have been around for some time now. Siri, Google Assistant, Cortana and Alexa are all Voice Assistants that use AI to identify what you say and respond. Now, Voice Assistants have improved thanks to enhanced AI integration. They not just reply to queries but also performe tasks such as placing an online order, searching a particular song and typing a message.
