The year was 1992, I was 12.. And I know, I just dated myself. Thing is, many of us grew up with a very weird concept of what Artificial Intelligence is. Robots will take over the world, you get the picture. It's no surprise that when we get this,.. (Elon Musk with the droid..) the immediate human reaction of most people is to creep out. Science fiction has been so engrained into our society that many times we forget this is Science.. FICTION. It's not real.

Now what is real is AI, but it's actually a completely different thing to what we see in the movies. It's not a robot that'll come to serve your drink (Rocky IV Paulie) even if we wish it were. Instead it's one of the most important layers that enables your phone to be called smart, but which even I wasn't able to tell until I decided to do the following test.

These are two photos taken with a 12 megapixel camera in full auto. One is my full-frame Sony A7S III that costs $4000, and the other is my Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 which costs 4 times less money and has a camera sensor that's a fraction of the size of the camera. Can you tell a difference? Obviously a photographer will, but the average untrained eye most likely won't, and there's a high possibility you'll find the Galaxy to take the more visually appealing photos as it even manages to handle dynamic range better than the camera if you notice the sky. Now, have a look at this other 16 megapixel photo. It was taken by a 6-year old Galaxy Note 4. So think of it: How is it that even with less megapixels, this year's phone has far better results than a phone from years ago? Sure, you could argue sensor size and micron size, but it turns out, it only accounts for half of the story. I mean how many times have you seen phones with great hardware, that don't take photos this good?

The other half of the story is artificial intelligence, and I dug into such a deep rabbit hole trying to clear my own misconceptions, that we decided to partner with Qualcomm on helping me understand how AI makes my phone better. I mean, they are the experts in how this all works. I'm Jaime Rivera with Pocketnow, and let's dive in.
