It seems nothing new for smart phone producers in the last Consumer Electronics Show. Presented innovations are housing, powering, and microchips which are expected by pundits. Many of the features have been discussed, from battery that can perform a longer life span and chips that consume less power.
As mobile parts become more affordable, giant tech manufacturers will produce much cheaper and powerful device that will result in low-price products. An example is, Atom Z2420 of Intel which is dual thread and single core SOC clocked at 1.2Ghz. Both consumers and smart phone producer will benefit for this fact.
Applications including SIRI and XBOX or TV integration turn into complicated as it needs the combination of hardware and software. Powerful processor alone is not enough for such complex apps. It needs a lot of resources including a large amount of database. The complexity of these apps particularly the voice recognition technology that thinks like human is the main challenge not only for Apple but also for GOOGLE and Microsoft
The SIRI technology, although got a positive result from scientists in MIT, is the most challenging iphone apps. It needs experts’ advice to answer common questions specifically finding directions. Asking question like list of neighborhood restaurants is very common but to give answer until consumer will be satisfied is not, and that will be the integral part.
High-end processors, large amount of data and complex applications are a possibility that brain simulation is possible, combination becomes more powerful. In short, those are the recipes of a Robotic.
Despite the fact that giant tech industries are working independent for their own business, it is very clear that they are going to build an amazing machine, and their inventions are only a stepping stone to digital human brain.
