Nov 2017 - Market Note - Doc # AP43208217
A Quick Glance at Mobile Phone AI
This IDC Market Note examines on-device artificial intelligence (AI), particularly as smartphones like the Apple iPhone X and Huawei Mate 10 are increasingly being marketed with AI features.
"On-device AI will be a big buzzword for new phones in 2018. So far, the strongest use cases are in computational photography and facial recognition, but these are still early days. The next 12-18 months will get much more exciting as application developers leverage it on both iOS and Android into more compelling user benefits over time," says Bryan Ma, IDC Asia/Pacific's VP of Devices Research.
