The uses of artificial intelligence in the mobile will go from the authentication of users to the recognition of their emotions, among others.

Smartphones and artificial intelligence (AI) will end up becoming a de facto couple soon.

And, although this technology limits its presence to premium terminals today , Gartner predicts a good future. Compared to 10% of smartphones that in 2017 included AI capabilities in the device among all those sent, that percentage will grow to 80% in 2022.

In fact, “the AI ​​solutions running on the smartphone will become an essential part of the suppliers’ roadmaps over the next two years,” says the consultant.

“With smartphones becoming more and more a basic device, providers are looking for ways to differentiate their products,” explains CK Lu, research director at Gartner . “Future AI capabilities will allow smartphones to learn, plan and solve problems for users.”

Different uses are foreseen for artificial intelligence in smartphones such as authentication, device management , natural language comprehension, audio analytics, recognition of emotions and the ability to anticipate the following user movements, among other things. .

“Over the next two years, most use cases will continue to exploit a single AI technology and capacity,” says Roberta Cozza, who is also a research director at Gartner. “In the future,” however, ” smartphones will combine two or more AI capabilities and technologies to provide more advanced user experiences.”
