Apple and IBM announced the intention to develop machine learning technology in the framework of the joint project on improving the framework Core ML. On Tuesday, March 20, according to TechCrunch. Joint efforts will help companies more thoroughly to advance the development of artificial intelligence and to use this research to develop smart apps for the iPhone.
The project of “smart” applications involves the creation of a professional, able to help people of different professions. The activities of IBM and Apple have already expressed interest in Coca-Cola, whose employees will participate in testing applications for the diagnosis of vending machines. Through deep integration with AI such programs will be able to identify faulty parts and, if necessary, order a replacement.
The uniqueness of the project lies in the fact that the process of object recognition occurs on the device itself without communication with the external servers. In many respects it became possible thanks to the identification technologies of the IBM Watson supercomputer, which will transfer existing knowledge framework Core ML. In fact, it will allow you to perform tasks that today can be solved only by a supercomputer, on your iPhone.
