Surly, Thought of you when reading this article. Quite sure you will find it of interest.    GO

Forget The iPhone, Apple's Artificial Intelligence Is The Real Deal

   Apple consumers should be excited about the integration of artificial intelligence in taking photos.

Acquisition of Regaind allows Apple photos to generate specific information on a userís face, gender, age and emotion to improve the user experience.

85% of pictures are now taken with a phone, not a camera. Up 35% from 2011.


New Way of Thinking about Apple

One may make the argument that too many consumers and investors are fixated solely on the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone. On September 12, 2017, the company announced the release dates of their iPhone 8 and X. This was a hyped event and had consumers buzzing about the new iPhone Xís new features such as facial recognition.

This article is to introduce a different way of thinking about Apple. I want to expose you to how the company is integrating artificial intelligence to better understand the photos you take. Keep in mind that Apple prides themselves heavily on taking fantastic pictures with their iPhones. When you are driving on the freeway, you may have most likely seen an abundant amount of Apple iPhone picture advertisements similar to the one below. As you read, imagine how you would feel as a consumer for this improvement in picture taking. As well, ask yourself how this specific way of artificial intelligence may influence your investment.
