Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that was born with the goal of helping computers to automate intelligent behaviors like humans such as the ability to learn, think and serve on their own.
This is one of the revolutionary inventions in the technology world, helping to bring along a series of other technical advances, and at the same time opening a new technological era for many industries, field.
Today, AI has appeared and crept in almost every industry, in which the mobile market stands out. Smartphones today are equipped with a lot of interesting features supported by artificial intelligence, such as Google Translate, virtual assistants such as Google Assistant, Siri, Bixby, etc.
Users can command smartphones to serve their needs such as alarms, location search, voice recognition, etc. Besides, AI technology also greatly improves the phone’s ability to take pictures. telephony, image processing, power saving, security enhancement, etc.
In addition to being integrated into software, artificial intelligence also “invades” the hardware in smartphones, typically microprocessors. Indeed, most of today’s processors have built-in AI capabilities that can handle complex algorithms, enhance performance, capture images, and process graphics, as well as bring a lot of features. unique feature on the phone.
The popular AI-equipped chips on the market are Apple’s A11 Bionic and A12 Bionic duo, Huawei’s Kirin 980, Snapdragon 845 and Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855, enabling users to experience new extremely new and attractive features.
For example, the iPhone X is equipped with the A11 Bionic chipset with 2 cores to handle AI tasks. Meanwhile, the brother of A11 Bionic, A12 has up to 8 cores in charge of AI tasks, which can process 5 trillion calculations per second, instead of just 600 billion compared to AI Engine on A11.
In addition, Qualcomm is also one of the chip manufacturers focusing on artificial intelligence, with Snapdragon 855, it introduced the 4th generation AI engine, combined with Adeno, Kyro and Hexagon graphics cores to provide power for AI tasks. As a result, AI performance will increase 3 times compared to its predecessor. In addition, the Hexagon processor for AI engine can also cut noise in video calls using real-time noise reduction algorithms.
It can be seen that not only smartphone manufacturers but also software and hardware companies are very interested in AI. Artificial intelligence can be seen as a vital factor for the success or failure of the mobile industry. This will continue to be the goal to pursue and compete among smartphone manufacturers in the future.
