Apart from a generative AI boost on smartphones, MediaTek also introduced Redcap 5G modems at its summit. These are modems that could help devices with lower data capacities such as smart home appliances. And smartphones are not the only frontier tipped to benefit from generative AI. According to Ku, AI could potentially also be integrated into vehicles, allowing it to perform a variety of tasks such as letting your colleagues know that you’ll be late for work when you run into traffic.
