Do you want real Artificial Intelligence on your smartphone? Pay!



A few days ago, we reported that Samsung, among other manufacturers, was planning to change the business model in relation to the world of smartphones, due to the fact that all the technology that serves as the basis for the Artificial Intelligence algorithms that have given so much speak, are actually processed in the “cloud” and not locally on the device itself.

These servers have a cost, which is not low, and as such, smartphone manufacturers want to pass this same cost on to consumers. However, as there is no longer any room to increase the price of smartphones, it is necessary to look for money elsewhere.

In addition to all this, we still have the question of… Do you want to pay for the current features? Probably not! Before you see manufacturers asking for money for something, that “something” needs to be really important and revolutionary.

First of all, what do you think about all this?
