As technology continues to evolve to meet human needs, today’s smartphone users are more interested in phones that have more to offer than just the basic calling, messaging and social media features. Things like screen size, memory capacity, fingerprint security, recording and camera features matter more to people.
A trendy and practical smartphone these days must come equipped with an impressive camera, powerful battery, a notch screen (being a trend virtually every brand has latched on to) and an AI assisted system. It’s a no-brainer.
So, it seems like artificial intelligence (AI) has made its way to every smartphone on the market, and is slowly becoming a staple feature on devices around the world. But what does AI really mean?
Artificial Intelligence simply refers to the ability of a smartphone to perform impressive tasks such as – communication, learning, recognition and differentiation of objects, people and places through a set of automated algorithms. Artificial Intelligence cuts across image recognition, identity feature and AI bright camera, amongst other things.
Although this might sound like a scene out of a sci-fi movie, I assure you that it is not and is in fact a reality.
