Many years back, Artificial Intelligence used to be a thing of fiction, something commonly seen in sci-fi and futuristic movies. It used to be a depiction of how technology would evolve and learn, that eventually, consumers would be able to rely on it to do things for them, so they can focus on the more important tasks.
Fast forward to today, AI is a reality, and has made its way into many aspects of our daily lives. It’s basically everywhere, from neural networks that learn from their environment, to algorithms that decide what you see in your social media feed. It has even made its way to the device that we spend most of our time with, the Smartphone.
In this regard, the ASUS ZenFone 5 and 5Z have been widely commended for their camera performance, even getting a score of 90 in DxOMark, all thanks to their vast AI capabilities and features.
A camera that thinks and learns from you
Both the ZenFone 5 and ZenFone 5Z are equipped with 12MP camera that uses a Sony IMX 363 sensor. With AI, it can optimize itself to different scenarios, and can also learn from its user.
With AI Photo Learning, you’ll be presented with two versions of a photo, and based on which one you choose, the phone will then apply the settings on your succeeding shots.
