How Samsung is using AI software to up the camera game on its smartphones

ZDNet

Samsung has applied approximately 60 new AI models run by the neural processing unit (NPU) to optimise the functions of the Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphone camera, a company executive said. This has allowed the South Korean tech giant to offer camera experiences that can satisfy casual users with the best photographs possible and professional users with RAW files equivalent to those taken on DSLR cameras, said Joshua Sungdae Cho, vice president and head of visual software R&D at Samsung's MX Business, in an interview with ZDNet. "We've applied NPUs to our smartphones for the first time three years ago," said Cho. "At the time, these NPU ran approximately 10 AI models. On the Galaxy S22 Ultra, there are now 60 AI models. Basically, the NPU is involved in nearly all functions of the cameras."


LG unveils G8X and revamped Dual Screen accessory

#artificialintelligence

It's IFA 2019, and that can only mean one thing: Gadgets abound for an entire week straight. LG, as it's apt to do, introduced an incrementally refined phone in the LG G8X (the successor to the LG G8). But the accessory the Seoul company unveiled alongside it is arguably more interesting: an updated version of its snap-on Dual Screen product that improves upon the original in several respects. Pricing has yet to be announced for the G8X and revamped Dual Screen, but we'll keep our eyes peeled for more details. LG anticipates both will ship in Q4.
