Soon, smartphones to remind you where you`ve put your keys
London: Intel is said to be investing in smartphones that “learn” about their owners and predict what they do - doing tasks for them without being asked.
The chip maker is to research hi-tech systems that will “learn” behaviours so they can offer advice, book meetings and even tell people where they usually lose their car keys.
“Within five years all of the human senses will be in computers and in 10 years we will have more transistors in one chip than neurons in the human brain,” the Daily Mail quoted Moody Eden, president of Intel Israel, a ssaying.
The machines will be like tiny, hi-tech Personal Assistants.
Apps such as Swifkey X already “predict” what people might write in an email or text by reading every previous email and text and “making guesses”. But Intel aims to take “machine learning” even further.
“Machine learning is such a huge opportunity,” Justin Rattner, Intel`s chief technology officer, said.
“Despite their name, smartphones are rather dumb devices. My smartphone doesn``t know anything more about me than when I got it.
“All of these devices will come to know us as individuals, will very much tailor themselves to us,” he said.
The research, to be carried out by the Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Computational Intelligence along with specialists from the Technion in Haifa and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, is aimed at enabling new applications, such as small, wearable computers that can enhance daily life.
For example if a user leaves his car keys in the house, the device will in the first week remember where he left them and by the second week will remind the user to pick up his keys before leaving home, Rattner said.
Such devices, which continually record what the user is doing, will be available by 2014 or 2015, he said.
“Within five years all of the human senses will be in computers and in 10 years we will have more transistors in one chip than neurons in the human brain,” Eden said.
Rattner said Intel is already implementing the new technology in digital signs it created for Adidas. The signs determine whether the shopper is male or female, adult or child and shows shoes suitable to that person.
He also said that this was part of Intel`s expansion beyond its traditional semiconductor business.
