Chinese smartphone maker OPPO on Thursday launched its flagship smartphone “Find X” in India for Rs 59,990. It has the world’s first stealth 3D cameras with Artificial Intelligence (AI) infused into it and a sliding structure that nearly mirrors the way a semi-DSLR camera works.

The new stealth design includes a flood illuminator, an infrared camera, a ranging sensor, a receiver, a front camera, a dot projector and a rear dual-camera.

With the sliding structure of the camera, the whole system automatically stretches out when unlocked or when a user is taking photos. It will retract if it is not in use.

The pre-order for the 8GB RAM and 256GB internal storage device will begin on Flipkart on July 30 and the smartphone will be available from August 3.

“The ‘Find’ series represents OPPO’s innovative spirit that believes that a smartphone isn’t just a communication tool but also a piece of art,” said Charles Wong, OPPO’s Assistant Vice President and OPPO India President.

“‘Find X’ aims to offer our Indian consumers a premium, innovative and technologically advanced offering for an advanced smartphone experience,” added Wong who is responsible for building the company’s momentum in the domestic market.

The dual-SIM device, available in Bordeaux Red and Glacier Blue variants, houses Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 — the most powerful CPU ever for a higher performance.

With 3730mAH battery, the device claims to run full-day with optimum usage. It sports a 6.42-inch panoramic arc screen with a much wider “19.5:9 aspect ratio”. It also sports 3D structured light facial recognition technology to unlock the phone in an instant.

The smartphone houses a 25MP AI-enhanced front camera with “3D AI Beauty Technology” that enhances the accuracy of facial recognition with 296 facial feature points, along with the 16MP+20MP rear dual camera system.

The “Find X” is outfitted with the latest Google Assistant, activated with the voice command, “OK, Google,” for voice assistance to find information, schedule, make phone calls, play music, listen to weather forecasts and find locations.

The company also announced a special edition “FIND X Automobili Lamborghini Edition” that was launched globally as a part of its global, strategic partnership with Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. (“Lamborghini”).

New AI Model by Google Can Help Detect Diabetic Retinopathy

For this purpose, it recently launched the "Google AI Impact Challenge"

Google has developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) model that can detect diabetic retinopathy with a level of accuracy on par with human retinal specialists, the technology giant said.

Google is working on “rolling out this diabetic retinopathy initiative in clinics in India with Verily” — an Alphabet-owned company which works on life sciences research and development, Kent Walker, SVP of Global Affairs at Google, wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

More than 400 million people in the world have diabetes. A third of them have diabetic retinopathy — a complication that can cause permanent blindness.

“Using the new assistive technology, doctors and staff can screen more patients in less time, sparing people from blindness through a more timely diagnosis,” Walker said.

While the blindness can be prevented, diabetic retinopathy often goes undetected because people do not always get screenings.

“In major part, this is due to limited access to eye care specialists and staff capable of screening for the disease. This is a problem that AI can help us solve,” Walker said.

“Deploying this technology in underserved communities that don’t have enough eye specialists could be life-changing for many,” Walker added.

Google began work on the model in collaboration with eye specialists in India and the US a few years back. They developed an AI system to help doctors analyse images of the back of the eye for signs of diabetic retinopathy.

“The results were promising,” Walker noted, while adding “we should work to make the benefits of AI available to everyone”.

Google has for several years applied AI research and engineering to projects in Asia Pacific with positive societal impact, including stopping illegal fishing in Indonesia, forecasting floods in India, and conserving native bird species in New Zealand, the blog post read.

Besides healthcare, the tech giant also wants to support more Asia Pacific organisations in using AI to help society by engaging with governments, non-profit organisations, universities and businesses.

For this purpose, it recently launched the “Google AI Impact Challenge”.

“Selected organisations who apply to the challenge will receive support from Google’s AI experts and Google.org grant funding from a $25 million pool,” Walker said. (IANS)
