The History of Mobile AI

The History of Mobile AI

Over the past six months, an increasing number of mobile manufacturers and developers have joined the race of mobile AI, while AI appeals to more consumers. In the meantime, platforms, solutions and cutting-edge technologies for mobile AI have seen rapid development. The history of mobile phones consists of many exciting moments, and the introduction of AI is going to be the next breakthrough. The introduction and development of mobile AI don’t simply improve mobile features. With improvement in mobile capabilities, algorithms, development platforms, hardware, software and sensors, we will probably witness permanent transformation where people coexist with mobile devices. In other words, mobile AI may change everything from fixed handset features such as photography, gaming, and translation, to our lifestyle including travel, business, and family activities. While we are all curious about what lies ahead, the mobile AI race is highly competitive, or even a bit chaotic. Some companies use AI as a marketing gimmick, which leads to concerns that “bad money drives out good”. We believe it is time for us to dig into mobile AI and come up with some insight. Say the map of mobile AI is unfolding before us. Let’s explore this mysterious world together and go through its milestones one by one. First of all, let’s talk about the past – or rather a few months ago when AI met mobile phones. “Preliminary stage”: encounter of AI and mobile phones, and its challenges Mobile AI got attention just a few months ago. Let us go back 70 years if we want to know how AI met mobile phones. Ever since AI was defined in 1951, academia believed that it could do three things: Talk, see, and think like a human being. To make that happen, computer scientists and mathematicians worked for decades to deliver various solutions ranging from logic systems, expert systems, to machine learning. What’s interesting though is that, while smartphones have dominated our lives, those three things will satisfy our needs going forward – dialogues free us from touchscreens; machine vision diversifies photography, filming, and image processing; while machine learning based on multivariate data allows mobile phones to understand users’ habits and needs. That way, the future of mobile phones lies in AI. But it is not that easy for the mobile industry to put AI to good use. This may be called the “preliminary stage” of mobile AI. For example, iPhone impressed global users with its voice assistant Siri. Siri evolved because of AI-driven voice interaction and semantic understanding. In the early days, it was simply a Q&A template. It was AI that made it smarter and smarter. Apple also used AI to identify and label...
