They call it the Kirin 970. Let’s start with the chip set. It has 5.5 million transitors in one centimeter. They say it’s 8-core CPU and a 12-core GPU is 50x more efficient than the average Smartphone. It should also give 25 times better performance Then they tested the chip set. It processes 2,000 images per minute. So why is all this important? Because they want to use Kirin 970 as a platform for AI, making this the Artificial Intelligence smartphone.
In fact, the Kirin 970 is part cloud AI and on-device AI. According to a Huawei spokesperson, AI will play a major role in the future of smartphones. They want AI to give smartphones better voice, data, and image facilities. However, when they say AI will ‘disrupt’ the smartphone experience, that concerns me. But even they say AI will make heavy demands on computing, energy, and cloud services. Maybe that’s why they’re taking their time.
Huawei leaders say the artificial intelligent smartphone will be complete around 2020. They’re even trying to make it more intelligent and give it almost human like capabilities. So even after they make the phone, they have to promote it. This is scary and exciting at the same time. Yes, this phone will be able to do things we can’t even dream of. But what if it can do too much for us? There’s already debate about AI taking human jobs. Could the AI smartphone add to that worry? So we have at least 2 1/2 years before this kind of phone comes out. Would you buy the artificial intelligence smartphone? And how much would you pay?
