Google has launched technologies like HDR+ and Night Sight that employed artificial intelligence (AI) to create stunning photographs with computational photography throughout the years. They used advanced speech recognition models to create Recorder, a gadget that can record, transcribe, and search for audio samples.
Google has made their System on a Chip (SoC) to power Pixel 6. AI will dominate their innovation efforts in the future, but fully pursuing the purpose has been hindered by computer restrictions. So they set out to create a mobile-first technology platform that would allow providing the most cutting-edge AI and machine learning (ML) to the users.
Tensor is Google’s first custom-built SoC, and it will power the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
The new design offers the entire camera system a new home with the camera bar, as the enhanced sensors and lenses are now too huge to fit into the traditional square.
Tensor is created to accommodate how people use their phones now and in the future. It’s not just about providing more computer capabilities as more and more features are powered by AI and machine learning; it’s about using that ML to unlock customized experiences for the Pixel consumers.
With Tensor, for example, they considered every component of the chip and modified it to run Google’s computational photography models. It includes exclusive new features, as well as updates to current ones for users.
Tensor enables Google to build Google phones that improve over time while tapping into Google’s most powerful features in a highly personalized experience. The Pixel 6 will also have the most layers of hardware security of any phone, thanks to Tensor’s new security core and Titan M2.
Everything from the entirely redesigned camera system to speech recognition and much more demonstrates this. The Pixel will be there — and it will be more helpful than ever — whether you’re trying to take that family portrait when your kids won’t hold still or connect with a relative in another language. More information regarding the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro will be available later this year.
