With the Honor View 10, Honor launches its first smartphone with artificial intelligence. If most of the time it acts discreetly in the daily life of the user, there is an area in which it is much more visible: the photo. Thanks to a dedicated chip and robust algorithms, the artificial intelligence of the Honor View 10 revolutionizes the picture on a smartphone. Here's how.

In December 2017, Honor unveiled its new high-end smartphone, the Honor View 10. A unique feature of this new model, it embeds an artificial intelligence. AI, we hear a lot about it for a few months. Many manufacturers are balancing this formula in their marketing speech, highlight some features. But is it's artificial intelligence? Not for everybody. Currently, on the market, only two smartphones integrate a "real artificial intelligence": the Huawei Mate 10 Pro and the Honor View 10.

What is "real" artificial intelligence?

Artificial intelligence is not new in itself. According to John McCarthy, inventor of this term, the AI is "the set of theories and techniques implemented to achieve machines capable of simulating intelligence. " Clearly, on a smartphone, the AI is a set of algorithms able to analyze a situation and adapt its behavior to meet the needs of the user.

What distinguishes the Honor View 10 from its competitors is that it has a chip dedicated to artificial intelligence. It is this chip that makes the Honor View 10 AI a "real" artificial intelligence. Because AI finds its starting point in the work of Alan Turing who wondered if a machine could "think." To think, you need a brain. In Honor View 10, the NPU chip is the brain.
It allows, unlike a conventional processor, to "think" like a human brain. It takes into account context, environment, user habits and thousands of other factors. It then adapts in real time and with a crazy speed to the needs of each one. For information, an NPU chip reacts 25 times faster than a conventional processor.

Honor View 10: When AI makes you a photographer

If there is one area in which the artificial intelligence of the Honor View 10 is particularly useful, it is the photo. They have evolved so fast that they have become the primary camera of the majority of users. They are no longer straightforward troubleshooting devices to take pictures on the fly. Today, motivated by social networks like Instagram, users want to heal their shots, offer artistic photos, with good light, a beautiful angle and so on.

But making quality photos is not given to everyone. The technique in photography requires a certain learning time. An effort that all users do not want to make. What we want is to seize the moment, without complication, with an optimal result. The artificial intelligence of Honor View 10 allows you to do this. Because its power of calculation and analysis will enable it to replace the human brain, and even to go faster.
Thus, the Honor View 10 is capable of analyzing 30 frames per second. For comparison, a Galaxy Note 8 for example only examines 2 per second. When the user takes out his smartphone and launches the camera, the artificial intelligence takes a fraction of a second to analyze the environment, the objects, and the context. She can distinguish 16 particular meanings (a cat, a dark background, a plant, text, etc.).

In all cases, the AI analyzes the context and modifies the settings so that they are the best possible given the situation. No need for the user to walk in the pro mode and adjust itself its ISO, its development, etc. The AI does it for him, much faster. When the settings are optimized, a small icon appears to warn the user that he can shoot. This speed is due to the presence of the NPU chip in the smartphone. No need to send information to the cloud and do the opposite. Everything is done locally, with a disconcerting speed.
