other snapdragon chips also include a vector DSP enable AI applications such as faceunlock, voice recog., and computational photography (image enhancements).
For instance, Snapdragon 625 delivered great images through the imagers in Mi A1

And here i thought that Apple was the only one with "sheeps", looks like Huawei also have their own sequit of people that blindly believe everything they says.
AnonD-594740, 23 Apr 2018Unless someone provide an objective study showing their "algorithm" as the definitive solution... moreIts a pretty wellknown fact that Huawei flagships slow down the least compared to the other major players
AnonD-594740, 23 Apr 2018Like Apple? I mean, the A11 couldnt possibly be designed and fabricated in one week, right?... moreHuawei always releases their mate series in a certain time frame, they aint gonna move it for an npu
AnonD-510098, 23 Apr 2018No. They had machin learning in the Mate 9 which had algorithms to make sure the phone is kept... moreUnless someone provide an objective study showing their "algorithm" as the definitive solution to android slowness after a couple of months, that claim will be just marketing crap.
AnonD-510098, 23 Apr 2018It wasnt just bragging rights, Huawei had it in production... Like Apple?
I mean, the A11 couldnt possibly be designed and fabricated in one week, right?
Look, Huawei decided to show the kirin one week before apple's event just to brag about the NPU, nothing more. They knew their phone couldnt be launched before the iphone to be claimed as the first with a dedicated "AI chip".
AI on phones is BULL$HIT >:(
it NOTHING but a fancy title ;$)
NPUs in phones are quite small and weak cant they make a HUGE one for a supercomputer? maybe for REAL objects ragnizeing (pets cars food like Bixby) and photo filters and for noise reduction and fixing the blur effects and automatically choosing the shooting mode (it exist because it is easy to program) photo editing
and there is other uses like for like voice ragnizeing and solving puzzles (maybe asking the phone/computer?) and speeding up the CPU in some tasks also the learning port like cookies so it will know what the user wants
so unless you can improve the NPUs in phones (or invent a new use for it) it will be just an improved version of Sonys "SUPERIOR Auto mode" :P
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2018yes it did, Hexagon 680 DSP, google it.....here it is
AnonD-510098, 23 Apr 2018The snapdragon 820 didnt have AI lool, log off manyes it did, Hexagon 680 DSP, google it.....
AnonD-594740, 23 Apr 2018Really? And exactly what does AI stuff on the mate 9? Image recognition? Like what google ... moreNo. They had machin learning in the Mate 9 which had algorithms to make sure the phone is kept fast after years of usage, whereas other phones like samsungs and apples slow down.
Anonymous, 23 Apr 2018wrong people! SD820 already had AI, Huwaei was the loudest to introduce that one year later :)The snapdragon 820 didnt have AI lool, log off man
I see no other than image recognition.
If they call it intelligence, then make it intelligent and smart at least:
- identify if I am photographing a performance (stage) or in church, or museum and disable flash
- identify if I am near a food store and popup my shopping list
- remind me to fuel my car when planning route in navigation
- check the net for my preferred places for news
- find out my utility bills and remind me to pay those
These are smart. My smartphone is dumb. I still wait for one that walks to the charger if battery is empty. :-)
All those gimmicks with AI or machine learning is disastrous. People who don't have lifes and spends their time posting shitty pictures on Facebook has been lured into concept that Smarthpone will do everything for you and you no need to think about anything else is WRONG. Smartphone it's just a tool, you are master of it and you use it as a tool to help you do your daily tasks. Later people crying that their personal informations been leaked or Smartphone did what it's not suppose to do. You can only blame yourself for thinking that smartphone will do everything for you without any consequences, as it says in case of scenario there the smartphone is more smarter than a user :)
1. put 1000 scenes modes in phone, starting from food, dog, car, ending in feet, toothpaste and 100 version of face beatification(99% of them do the same thing: bump color/contrast/blur background).
2. put automatic scene recognition and call it AI, super-mega-inteligent
After trying it so many time, not only on camera but in phone it self I can say that its just advertising mambo-jumbo that for most of time just annoy you with its results.

Once in a while it will taunt me by sending pictures from whatever tropical paradise it decides to settle in... maybe I'll buy a flip phone.
I remember the Meego in Nokia N9 was among the first to recognise people's faces in the pictures taken by the camera by comparing the faces on and suggesting to tag them in facebook..
sadh, 23 Apr 2018Jeez, this article is full of knowledge, yet people still argue about phone manufacturer which... moreYup. Let's see if these people still fight in the next generations. I just don't like arguing other manufacturers because they are making their own different ways to attract consumers. Ugh, stop this war PEOPLE.
