The world is poised for an AI revolution. With societies becoming digitally savvy and ready to embrace technology disruptions, fields like telecommunication, health care, transportation, travel, and others, are starting to rely more and more heavily on AI and machine learning technologies to support human being in their daily lives and make their living easier.
Huawei was one of the first to embed AI into all parts of its Huawei Mate10 Series: the camera, the battery and the performance. Powered by Huawei’s built-in Kirin 970 processor, these phones offer an intelligent camera designed to change the way we capture our favourite moments. Here are four things to watch out for when trying the new camera for the first time:
The camera captures Leica-style images
Huawei’s long-term partnership with premium camera manufacturer Leica offers a new and improved dual-lens camera that takes smartphone photography to “new levels,” according to the company. Leveraging Leica’s capabilities, the dual camera is said to deliver more accurate colours, more refined interaction between light and shadow, and more natural pictures. Combining a 12-megapixel RGB sensor with a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, the Huawei Mate10 Series smartphones offer image stabilisation and aperture of f/1.6. Besides the camera capabilities, the adoption of AI technology has “substantially enhanced” the overall camera experience, which is demonstrated by the fact that the device is now listed under the Android Enterprise Recommended list.
The camera uses AI to take better night shots
Shooting at night can be sometimes very challenging. With Huawei’s AI camera, grainy and blurry night shots are “a thing of the past,” according to the Chinese firm. The camera uses AI to capture high-quality night shots, equipped with clear details and bright colours.
The camera learns and recognises images
The Mate10 Series’ camera AI uses automatic scene detection to immediately recognise what you’re looking at through your camera. Having learnt 100 million images, the camera recognises 13 different kinds of scenes in real time. From food, to the sky, to the beach, to sunrise/sunset, to text, and other, the camera is able to bring more saturation to your pictures, as well as a brilliant bokeh to your backgrounds. Once it recognises the subject you’re shooting, the camera sets parameters on the fly, giving you the ideal colours, brightness, exposure and contrast for perfect shots. It’s worth mentioning that Huawei leveraged on the AI capabilities of the Mate10 Pro to transform a Porsche Panamera into a driverless vehicle that understands its surroundings, just like the Huawei Mate10 Series smartphones’ camera. The car could distinguish between 1,000s of different objects like cats, dogs, balls and bikes, and it learns to take the most appropriate course of action.
The camera uses AI to zoom and capture moving objects
The Huawei Mate10 Series smartphones’ camera use AI to zoom and capture far objects with all their details. Featuring an AI-powered digital zoom of up to 6-10x brings far-off text into clearer focus and helps capture greater detail. Additionally, the camera uses AI to capture moving, fast objects and give you clear pictures without blur.
