Mobile phone chipset maker MediaTek on Wednesday launched the Helio P70 system-on-chip (SoC) with enhanced Artificial Intelligence (AI) engine designed to power full-featured smartphones at affordable price points.

The Helio P70 chipset comes with CPU (central processing unit) and GPU (graphics processing unit) upgrades for more powerful AI processing, and also brings upgraded imaging and camera support, a gaming performance boost and advanced connectivity features, MediaTek said in a statement.

“With an enhanced AI engine that works seamlessly across the CPU and GPU, Helio P70 delivers much faster performance for AI applications and is still highly power efficient,” said TL Lee, General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communication business unit.

“The introduction of Helio P70 continues MediaTek’s commitment to deliver high-end smartphone features and advanced technology for the mass market,” Lee said.

The introduction of the Helio P70 follows the launch of the Helio P60 earlier this year, and builds on its hallmark features to power the full-featured smartphones.

Built with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company’s (TSM) 12nm FinFET technology, the Helio P70 features a multi-core APU operating at up to 525 MHz (megahertz) for fast and efficient edge-AI processing.

The chipset packs four Arm Cortex-A73 2.1 GHz (gigahertz) processors and four Arm Cortex-A53 2.0 GHz processors in an octa-core big.LITTLE configuration.

For an additional power boost, the chipset has an improved Arm Mali-G72 MP3 GPU operating at up to 900 MHz, which provides a 13 per cent performance improvement compared to the Helio P60, MediaTek said.

Helio P70’s enhanced AI engine delivers a 10 to 30 per cent AI processing boost compared to the Helio P60, the company added.

Microsoft on Monday announced a business school in Artificial Intelligence (AI) that will help companies improve decision-making in integrating AI across their operations.
INSEAD, a graduate business school with campuses in Europe, Asia and the Middle East, partnered with Microsoft to build the AI Business School’s strategy module, which includes case studies about companies across many industries that have successfully transformed their businesses with AI, the company said in a statement.
A series of short introductory videos provide an overview of the AI technologies driving change across industries, but the bulk of the content focuses on managing the impact of AI on company strategy, culture and responsibility, the company said in a statement.

“There is a gap between what people want to do and the reality of what is going on in their organisations today, and the reality of whether their organisation is ready,” said Mitra Azizirad, Corporate Vice President for AI marketing at Microsoft in Redmond, Washington.
“This school is a deep dive into how you develop a strategy and identify blockers before they happen in the implementation of AI in your organisation,” she added.
According to Nick McQuire, analyst with market research firm CCS Insight, more than 50 per cent of the companies his firm has surveyed are already either researching, trialling or implementing specific projects with AI and machine learning.
However, very few are using AI across their organisation and identifying business opportunities and problems that AI can address, he added. (IANS)
