Apple Neural Engine May The Apple New AI
It is also reported that Apple’s new AI chip would be integrated into iPhones and iPads so that the hardware will show better performance over time. It will also be possible that Apple may give developers access to the chip and the chip would be able to perform tasks such as the use of facial recognition in photos application, speech recognition, and to power the iPhone’s and iPad’s predictive keyboard – says report.
Since last few months, it is rumored that Apple may include Augmented reality technology into upcoming iPhone 8, but it is not clear whether it will debut in upcoming iPhone 8 or not. However, it is reported that Apple has tested prototypes of iPhone with AI chip.
If this technology will present in iPhone 8 then the information of 2D images from front camera of the device will be used for applications like face recognition, iris recognition, and 3D selfies.
