Huawei and its Kirin 980 chipset advance cognitive intelligence: soon we’ll see smartphones that think almost like human beings
That smartphones are the ultimate exponent of total connectivity, the last great revolution for our society and that our way of life would not be the same without them, we have no doubts about that. But what will be the future of our mobile devices?
that the smartphones are the ultimate exponent of total connectivity the last great revolution for our society and that our way of life would not be the same without them, we have no doubts about that. But which will be the future of our mobile devices? THE present, it is already written in code of Artificial intelligence.

THE machine learning and the AI already come with most of the latest Android smartphones in the form of smart assistants or as resources added to a device that allow you to learn how to use it. to teach us to take better pictures, adapt to our habits and better manage resources and battery, or even understand space in augmented or virtual reality applications.
And it is in these latest developments that the biggest challenge for the Smartphones that want to “think” like human beings to anticipate what we need. Equipment that understands what we need and help us solve our problems like a digital assistant would. The key is to improve human-machine interaction and the AI is doing a lot to understand us.
Cognitive intelligence and how we can take advantage of it
Cognitive intelligence is understood as a set of intellectual abilities that human beings have to accumulate knowledge and use it correctly to solve problems. Cognitive intelligence is our brain’s ability to use memory, attention or language to retain knowledge and converting them into applicable experience to achieve goals.
cognitive computing it is a specific branch of AI that all industry players are investigating to be able to create devices capable of understanding and emulating the workings of the human mind, something still abstract today, but which we have no doubts will come in the future.
In the medium term, it is more than certain that we will see smartphones capable of retaining knowledge of how we use them and what we need to be done for us at certain times. We are talking about machines that can develop the ability to adapt to make decisions and offer information almost before we ask for it. or even without the need for us to explicitly request them.
Industry is already working on systems capable of automating tasks that require decision-making based on parameters learned from experience.
We already have autonomous cars and soon we will have phones able to talk to us knowing what we are doing, where and what are our needs to meet them with diligence and speed.
HiSilicon Kirin 980, a dual NPU to enhance Huawei Mate 20’s AI
And if the future of smartphones is in artificial intelligence, Huawei wants to be at the forefront of this future, no one will be surprised if we say that the Chinese company offers what is probably the best AI on a smartphone , Huawei Mate 20 Pro already allows you to enjoy artificial intelligence in a unique way that is not available in any other competitor equipment.
In fact, betting on your own hardware and noting the HiSilicon Kirin 980 is probably one of Huawei’s biggest hits, the Kirin 980 is the first 7-nanometer chipset mounted on smartphones, with advanced capabilities for AI thanks to not an NPU, but the two neuronal processing units integrated into the SoC.
This implies a greater power for activities related to deep learning and artificial intelligence, which will be managed locally by two processors working in parallel that want to guarantee performance and better resource and energy management in tasks that involve more processing load.
The Huawei Mate 20 Pro is capable of analyze and understand what your camera sees to preview and achieve the best possible result from over 1,500 scenes and possible settings. Thanks to AI we have a smart auto mode, which is truly smart and it will help us with focus, lighting and framing, along with other parameters that most non-photographers will certainly not master.

In addition, the Kirin 980 is capable of analyze the behavior of the hardware platform and adapt the resources to deliver peak performance when needed and save power when the device is idle. Without a doubt, a smartphone that can adapt to the user and that can be a glimpse of what we can expect fromthe phones of the future with advanced AI and cognitive computing.
