Artificial intelligence is a controversial topic. Most smartphone makers claim to have used it to create their own voice servers, but at the moment, despite the vast choice, these programs still have a rather limited range of features. In fact, Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa and Bixby, who also struggle to understand other languages outside of Korea, offer more or less the same service. While Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg quarrel about the severity of sentient machines, Huawei has been trying to wonder what it really means when it comes to artificial intelligence.
The Chinese company, which has become the first smartphone maker in the country for the second quarter of this year, has put a question to its users on its Facebook page: “What does it mean for you AI?” In the picture attached to the place we also find the phrase “AI is more than a simple voice server”. This suggests that Huawei is actually working on a mobile support system as they anticipated some rumors. Some people point out that the word “AI” has a “love” in Chinese, and this could presage something different. Up until now, Huawei relied on Alexa but with the launch of Mate 10 things could change. The company did not want to imbibe in the answers but it is certain that the topic will be discussed in the next IFA in Berlin at the beginning of September. During the keynote, Huawei CEO Richard Yu said he would not talk about new products but “how convergence of cloud, connectivity and AI is pushing the mobile industry, creating new smartphone experiences within reach.”
