The smart­phone in­dus­try is evolv­ing on a very fast pace and the con­tin­u­ous ra­pid­ity has never failed to stun us. Smart­phones have now be­come some­thing more than just a gad­get to com­mu­ni­cate or kill the bore­dom and dull­ness. This is be­cause they have be­come in­tel­li­gent ma­chines due to Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence. Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, known as ma­chine in­tel­li­gence is the de­vel­op­ment of com­puter ap­pli­ca­tions that can process in­for­ma­tion, and re­spond in a way which is closer to hu­man rea­son­ing. One can even call this process of mak­ing com­put­ers ‘think’.To­day, ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence is a $15 bil­lion in­dus­try and grow­ing.With more than 2,600 com­pa­nies devel­op­ing in­tel­li­gent tech­nol­ogy, the value of AI is ex­pected to rise to more than $70 bil­lion by 2020. More­over, the AI mar­ket is ex­pected to sur­pass $100 bil­lion by the year 2025 as per the Con­stel­la­tion Re­search. Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence on phones has be­come the must-have fea­ture– whether con­sumers know it or not. Gart­ner pre­dicts that by 2022, 80 per­cent of smart­phones shipped will have on-de­vice AI ca­pa­bil­i­ties, up from 10 per­cent in the pre­vi­ous years.

Gone are the days when ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence was a fan­tasy in movies. Many of us are al­ready tak­ing ad­van­tage of it through mo­bile apps. Ow­ing to this thou­sand of new ‘smart’ apps and de­vices are be­ing launched ev­ery day. The Mo­bile Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence (AI) prom­ises to re­design­the in­dus­try in the com­ing years. It will also be a rev­o­lu­tion as it in­volves giv­ing our phones the abil­ity to learn and de­cide for them­selves the best way to func­tion.This prom­ises to be the trend for the next few years. It has ini­ti­ated a whole new tech­no­log­i­cal war that al­ready faces sev­eral com­peti­tors. For ex­am­ple, the maker of Qual­comm pro­ces­sors, with its re­cent Snap­dragon 835, claims that it is al­ready pre­pared for Arti- fi­cial In­tel­li­gence. Other man­u­fac­tur­ers of pro­ces­sors, such as AMD, In­tel Me­di­aTek or Sam­sung, have also joined, or are about to, this new tech­no­log­i­cal race.In the com­ing years, ex­perts are pre­dict­ing that it will be pos­si­ble for all cus­tomer dig­i­tal as­sis­tant to rec­og­nize peo­ple by face and voice.

One of the main ap­pli­ca­tions of Ar­ti­fi­cial In­tel­li­gence is in the field of pho­tog­ra­phy. To­day, smart­phones can rec­og­nize each and ev­ery el­e­ment once you open the cam­era: a land­scape, a mov­ing sub­ject, a face, a night scene, and con­fig­ure all its pa­ram­e­ters within no time to ob­tain the best photo pos­si­ble. The mo­bile phones learn as we use the phone, so that it never works on a pre-set con­fig­u­ra­tion, but changes it ac­cord­ing to its “ex­pe­ri­ences”. An­other pos­si­bil­ity of the smart­phone’s pro­ces­sor is “Real-time com­put­er­ized vision” which helps in ob­tain­ing com­ple­men­tary in­for­ma­tion about the photograph clicked. The mo­bile can tell us what build­ing is on the screen or char­ac­ters in the pic­ture. Texts on the screen can be tran­scribed/trans­lated into any lan­guage. More­over, if the smart­phone is con­nected to a mu­sic data­base, it au­to­mat­i­cally up­dates it weekly. And, the phone will in­form you im­me­di­ately what mu­sic is play­ing in the back­ground which cuts the scope of us­ing apps like Shazam.

With the evo­lu­tion of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence, the fu­ture seems ex­cit­ing and promis­ing. Soon,there will be in­tel­li­gent mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tions, which will take things to the whole new level. Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence has ben­e­fited smart­phones in an in­di­rect way. Soon, the mo­bile phone will be our as­sis­tant and can re­spond to mail, or even phone calls, for us. This is the new re­al­ity: an in­tel­li­gent smart­phone.
