When communicating with the media a few days ago,According to Judd Heape, vice president of Qualcomm, AI (artificial intelligence) technology has greatly promoted thecell phoneThe advancement of photography, this combination has entered the third stage, and there are still 3 to 5 years before the fourth stage of the ultimate, holy grail.
The outside world believes that the fourth stage will be the moment when mobile phone photography fully surpasses SLR.
The four stages here are divided like this. From about 2018, AI technology has emerged in mobile phone photography, but it is only used to identify what is in the picture, such as people, animals, landscapes, etc.; in the second stage, AI began to be used. To optimize the 3A, that is, autofocus, auto white balance and auto exposure. In the current third stage, AI can already partially understand the elements of the scene and try to meet the needs of the photographer.
The so-called fourth stage is that AI participates in the processing of the entire picture.
In fact, earlier this year, Sony executives also believed that within a few years, mobile phone imaging will surpass SLR.
It is worth mentioning that the Qualcomm VP also mentioned that compared to the bulky and backward cameras of Canon and Nikon, the Snapdragon imaging unit on the phone is 10 times faster, which will allow more beautiful things to happen. , although he also admitted that it may not be realistic in the short term to configure a CMOS size beyond 1 inch on a mobile phone.
