Artificial Intelligence, for the benefits it offers on a day-to-day basis, is a tool that will reach different market segments – beyond smartphones. Its evolution is becoming faster, as evidenced by the work that Huawei does on their mobile devices, where its application allows users to make life more comfortable and, in addition, make the most of the hardware that integrates in models such as Mate 20 Pro.
The turning point for the evolution of Artificial Intelligence to be as rapid in recent times is that the processors include specific options for the application to be as effective as possible. A clear example of what we say are the Kirin 970 and 980, both with specific process units for this task (called NPU and in the second case two are integrated). With its use, benefits are improved when taking photos and energy consumption is optimized. And, there is even the possibility of recognizing objects … and, this, allows you to export their use to other markets such as the automotive industry.
The automotive industry, another frontier for Artificial Intelligence
The clear objective that is sought with the use of AI is to achieve more effective and efficient autonomous cars, and both manufacturers and technology companies are clear that their implementation is positive – since collaboration agreements are constantly being known – and where learning is key to getting the vehicles of the future safe. For this, these will include powerful processors and sensor systems that will allow a complete application of Artificial intelligence.
Use of AI in a processor
Even Huawei has already carried out real application tests of AI in cars using a Mate 10 Pro terminal. It exercised real operation control thanks to its high process power and, also, the subsequent work with the data that they are acquired (as, for example, the acquisition of up to 2,000 images per second that are managed, recognized and behavior decisions are made when detecting objects such as animals or people). It was even possible to spin the vehicles or indicate that they stopped. That is, some first steps that make it clear that Artificial Intelligence is useful in this segment of the market.
Security, key element
This section focuses on many of the advances that will allow the use of Artificial Intelligence in the automotive world. Thus, for example, drivers’ actions can be detected and, in this way, prevent them from getting distracted or sleeping at the wheel. In addition, dodging what’s on the road will also be possible thanks to learning, which will avoid collisions thanks to automatic and independent decision making.
Interior car of the future
Therefore, it is very clear that AI is an element that has great potential to be an integral part of the vehicles of the future and, in addition, thanks to it autonomous cars are much closer to being a reality. Companies that are well positioned, such as Huawei, will have a lot to say by collaborating with manufacturers who decide to use their technical advances, such as in processors and data management.
