Artificial intelligence (AI) is gaining more weight in 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 increasingly be a trend 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 not left behind with its own AI technologies, with recognition of places and objects.
The new devices, through sensors, microphones and advanced cameras, are able to detect and classify objects or even sounds that are heard around us.
Devices with artificial intelligence
Models like the Lenovo Yoga 3 Plus tablet have a Phab 2 Pro processor, specially prepared to work with visual recognition applications, which allow recognizing faces and objects. Also elements such as Landmann Detection technology, which allows to provide information from Wikipedia when the camera of the tablet recognizes any of the monuments, sculptures or landscapes included in its database.
More specifically in the smartphone field, models such as 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 the selfies, making small changes in the photos to highlight the natural beauty of people.
Another big bet 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, key piece of AI in mobile devices
But another of the elements 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 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 a restaurant to make a reservation on our behalf.
The tablet also plays an important role in the context of the IoT (Internet of the Things). As they manage to control different interconnected devices in the home (computer, smart TV, air conditioning, appliances…), tablets and smartphones become the ideal solution to interact from a single device.
The future of artificial intelligence in the world of tablet / smartphone
It is often said that the year 2018 is being 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 as different elements, such as the virtual assistant or the chatbot, have begun to be known and spread, although there is still a long way to go and They anticipate interesting challenges.
As the tablets are increasingly similar to laptops, but with an extra flexibility and versatility, we will see increasingly more stylized designs focused on domestic use.
By collecting data and algorithms, it is expected 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 the technology a little more human.
