The Current State of AI on Mobile Devices
While AI has made significant strides in 2023, its implementation on mobile devices has faced some limitations.
Current technology constraints have hindered the smooth operation of massive language models, like those powering chatbots such as ChatGPT, on phones. Cloud-based applications, though available, fall short in providing real-time notifications and quick assessments.
Pixel 8 Pro's AI Progress
The Pixel 8 Pro, launched in October, showcased progress by running foundational AI models on-device.
However, promised AI-powered updates have been somewhat limited and underwhelming.
Examples include AI summarization for Recorder transcripts, with restrictions on recording length, and Video Boost, which lacks the impact seen with Night Sight for photos and involves cloud processing delays.
Google's Assistant with Bard
A promising development is Google's Assistant with Bard, a ChatGPT-style AI chatbot introduced at the Pixel launch event.
Although initially modest, Bard has been gaining capabilities and may evolve into an assistant capable of handling complex tasks.
Samsung's Unpacked teaser visuals hint at a connection with Bard, sparking speculation about the advanced AI's role in the Galaxy S24 series.
AI Beyond Phones
AI's influence extends beyond phones, as showcased at CES 2024 with the Rabbit R1.
This breakout hit, designed by Teenage Engineering, serves as an AI assistant for phones.
Simplifying tasks like flight booking and pizza ordering through seamless app interactions, the Rabbit R1 garnered massive preorders within its first week, indicating a strong interest in AI-assisted digital management.
Anticipating the Galaxy S24 Series
As the unveiling of Samsung's Galaxy S24 series approaches, the question remains:
Will it usher in a breakthrough in AI integration, offering a glimpse into the future of effortless digital interaction?
Or will it be a mere tech demo, leaving consumers eager for more?
Clearly, we’re ready to take a break from the tedious work of tapping on our phones all day long — will the Galaxy S24 show us what that future looks like? Or will it be just another tech demo?
