The mobiles have been turning into increasingly intelligent devices with an overflowing speed. To such a point that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is already being introduced into our life, with the purpose of making our lives easier.
All this information its obtain by learning from you, how you write, your behavior and your search patterns, all this information is what you are using to adapt your device to your needs. From this Machine Learning, they have a lot to tell us about it.
What is Machine Learning?
Machine Learning (ML) is a scientific discipline belonging to the field of AI, it creates systems that learn automatically. For this discipline, “learning” means identifying complex patterns among millions of data, that is, the machine that learns is an algorithm that processes our data and predicts our future behaviors.
But, as with humans, learning requires “training.” For example, if I want to “train” a certain program that can do facial recognition, you have to train it by having it process many photos so that it starts to detect faces.
Facebook took advantage of this fact, and now it may be able to identify you in photographs where you have not been tagged, in this way the social network will send you notifications that tell you what photo you have left. And, of course, Google does the same with the searches that you do through your device, it will not send you notifications, but it will already be ahead of what you are going to look for while typing, since you have been “learning” your search patterns.
Artificial Intelligence on your mobile
Although many manufacturers of smartphones have used this term to attract buyers for some time, there are many brands that have used it to provide added value to their competitors, a clear example is Huawei.
The Chinese giant has installed a neuronal processing unit in their devices, this allows the translation of texts in real time and optimize the use of resources of your terminal, in this way while you make use of all these functions, the mobile is learning from user automatically.
But the world of smartphones will still go further, since the analysts concluded that the AI has ten potential utilities at least, so both users and manufacturers can benefit over time. These utilities are the following:
Have installed a digital “You”
The new mobile devices can perform actions without the user requesting it, since they will have installed sensors and data stored in the device. This way they can get used to the idea of what users want, when and how they want.
With this new tool the passwords will disappear, due to the fact that through a combination between biometrics and AI, many functionalities can be made, including analyzing and detecting patterns as well as the behavior of their users.
Natural language identification
Thanks to automatic learning, there may be speech recognition systems capable of understanding the requests of its users in a more precise way. Giants like Google is already trying to create this system and is already making progress, last year proposed a small test to users, this was to identify which of the audio samples that showed was real or artificial.
Augmented reality and “visual vision”
The combination of AI systems with augmented reality or digital can help different professionals to collect very important data, for example, those that are dedicated to the health sector. This collection could help detect complex diseases for users such as cancer.
Management of devices
This would be a new step after the system created by Huawei, in which the system could choose those moments of the day to send notifications to the user, or perhaps what are the situations where their performance must be reduced in order to have more autonomy.
Personal profile of the user
Due to the large amount of data collected, profiles could be created that will know our hobbies, tastes and behaviors. A sector that could take a huge stake would be that of insurers, these could increase or reduce their rates depending on the behavior of the user on the road.
The use of these systems of the future could detect and eliminate dangerous content. This could be that it violates some law, policy or even certain threats that may be harmful to your device such as malware or applications that are malicious.
Improvements in photography
Google is already starting to make use of this system in their Pixel phones, all this through software that eliminates all types of manual adjustment. But experts suggest that these adjustments will suit the user’s tastes. In fact, some Chinese companies are already starting to use it to retouch the selfies according to the aesthetic canons of the country.
The fact that the mobile phone may be listening to the user all day could generate fear at the beginning, however, it may stop being so due to the advantages that this could bring.
A much commented example would be the one that the mobile can use the mic to carry out automatic actions. This would be something similar to what Google is already doing with Pixel, by means of the “is sounding” mode, it can recognize songs by showing their title automatically.
We are closer to a fully digitized world and every time the mobiles will have greater prominence, we have already seen how different business sectors are linking to them or going to do it.
In YupCharge we are also making small advances thanks to our innovative public chargers for mobile batteries. This future is getting closer and we will be the first to go with it.
