The brand-new iPhone X has integrated neural engines for face recognition, but this is just the beginning. Embedded neural engines and dedicated intelligence processors are bringing artificial intelligence (AI) to the edge devices, breaking the dependence on the cloud. The benefits of processing on the edge include reduced latency, full network coverage, increased privacy and security, and reduced communication with the cloud, resulting in lower cost. With these benefits, mobile devices can harness the power of AI to do things that would have been considered science fiction not too long ago.
