The artificial intelligence (AI) is gaining more weight on tablets and smartphones. The rise of virtual assistants, visual and facial recognition systems or text and audio recognition systems are just some of the advances that will be increasingly trending among the new devices of technology companies.
Samsung, Google or Apple have already launched their own innovations in artificial intelligence. A Chinese tablet like the Lenovo Yoga 3 Plus is also not far behind with its own AI technologies, with recognition of places and objects.
The new devices, through sensors, microphones and advanced cameras, are capable of detecting and classifying objects or even sounds that are heard around us.
Devices with artificial intelligence
Models such as the Lenovo Yoga 3 Plus tablet have a Phab 2 Pro processor, specially prepared to work with visual recognition applications, which allow to recognize faces and objects. Also elements such as Landmann Detection technology, which allows information from Wikipedia to be provided when the tablet’s camera recognizes any of the monuments, sculptures or landscapes included in its database.
More specifically in the smartphone field , models like the Chinese Oppo F5 incorporate camera assistants capable of recognizing our facial features, just like the iPhone X itself. In addition, this model has an artificial intelligence system that allows you to retouch selfies , making small changes to photos to highlight people’s natural beauty.
Another of the great bets for AI is found in Samsung and its Samsung Galaxy S9, with the Bixby assistant and its Bixby Vision system, an augmented reality application that allows you to translate texts, recognize landmarks in a city or find product information and prices that can be seen with the camera.
The virtual assistant, a key piece of AI on mobile devices
But another element and perhaps the most recognizable when we talk about AI is, without a doubt, the virtual assistant. Google Assistant, Alexa or Siri are some of the most established and can be seen already pre-installed, either on Android devices, or on iOS systems on the iPhone, iPad and iPod.
Artificial intelligence will make our devices much more autonomous and active, anticipating our needs, allowing us not only to perform voice searches, but even a virtual voice can call a hotel or restaurant to make a reservation on our behalf.
The tablet also occupies an important role within the context of the IoT (Internet of the Things). As different interconnected devices are controlled in the home (computer, smart TV, air conditioning, household appliances …), tablets and smartphones become the ideal solution to interact from a single device.
The future of artificial intelligence in the world of the tablet / smartphone
The year 2018 is often said to be the year of artificial intelligence. And it is still true that it is a decisive moment, in which we have begun to see more and more how different elements, such as the virtual assistant or the chatbot, have begun to become known and spread, although there is still a long way to go. they anticipate interesting challenges.
As tablets become more and more like laptops, but with an extra flexibility and versatility, we will see more and more stylish designs focused on home use.
By collecting data and algorithms, it is hoped that mobile devices can not only talk, but make decisions and do things in our place, evolving from the most rudimentary systems to forms of artificial intelligence that will make technology a little more human.
