Some lines of Smartphone released starting from 2017 has been equipped by a sort of new features namely Artificial Intelligence (AI) on its both hardware and software. In the gadget tech news, those are big flagships like Samsung Galaxy S8, iPhone X, Google Pixel, and more. Even, many medium class Smartphone series also have applied it to spoil the customers more. There are some features available in the AI technology. Some of them are Facial Recognition Biometrics, Machine Learning, Augmented Reality, and others. Of course, in this 2018, this trend is developed and the manufacturers are predicted to always improve it in the future.
So, what are the factors that make AI technology is sophisticated? At least, there are 5 functions and excellences of this technology.
Provide a Better Camera to Capture Objects
The presence of AI in mobile phone undeniably tends to give more innovations in Smartphone’s camera. AI basically enables the Smartphone’s interface camera to detect objects in the photo frames whether it is the scenery taken in landscape and portrait modes or a certain object like flower that needs clearer details. Interestingly, this technology also accommodates things that previously are only able to be produced by digital cameras. Therefore, certain problems in photography like being blurred and not focused are just solved.
How is about ‘selfie’? Does it improve also through this technology? Yes, it is. AI features the facial recognition technology. Despite being functioned to recognize the owners, the ability to acknowledge face’s features is helpful enough to make your selfie photos loom more accurate.
Offline Real-Time Translator
There are indeed many translation apps available in the App Store. The apps can even translate only in the form of text but also picture, audio, and video real time. However, here is the problem; the apps must be supported by internet connection.
On the other hand, AI provides you greater features in which the translation process can be done smoothly without any presence from the internet. This feature has provided some languages and it is planned to be added in the future. It is really helpful for travelling for sure. It is particularly when the users need to communicate in the area that is not reached by the internet signal.
Features for Daily Tasks
In general, the system of AI is indeed designed for learning and adapting every time it is used. it records and memorizes the usage patterns of the users when it is placed in the Smartphone. Then, the system will process it to be applied in daily activities. There is a good example. A user may have a certain habit in relation to his Smartphone like inactivating the ringtone, activating Bluetooth connection, and closing the running apps in the background once in some hours.
AI then recognizes this habit. After learning about it for a certain period of time, it can automatically do all those tasks; inactivating the ringtone, activating Bluetooth connection, and closing the running app. Interestingly, it is not only effective for the simple tasks but even the more complicated ones like opening certain websites or watching particular videos on YouTube channel.
Face recognition is undeniably the most featured one in the AI technology. At the first time it was introduced by Apple under the name of Face ID, people were skeptical particularly those iPhone users who find it more secured when using Touch ID. Apple Argued that Face ID in iPhone X does the face scanning using ‘TrueDepth’ camera with around 30,000 infrared spots and 2D infrared picture to map the face contour.
But then, many other brands followed Apple’s step in applying this technology although they may use other names. One of them is Face Unlock applied by some brands of Smartphone released by LG, Vivo, and OnePlus. Interestingly, many other brands seem fascinated to continue the trends as this feature is also able to scan the face only through photo. In some types of Smartphone with selfie features, the face recognition is generated into beauty recognition as it is able to recognize the type and skin colors, sex, and even age in details.
There are now many kinds of digital assistants that are able to receive and process voice commands. Some of them are Google Assistant, Siri, Bixby, Alexa, and more. the way it works is basically by responding the sound to do some tasks like answering short message, playing music, and reading news.
As a part of AI technology, the digital assistant is also predicted to be improved rapidly in the near future particularly to make it work more optimally.
