AI hardware in the handset might be qualcomm's saviour
Pretty obvious that the blight of AI/ML is going to insinuate itself into just about everything.
I imagine chatgpt and its ilk are already phone apps but I can see a market for phones that could store self contained models for particular problem domains requiring the sort of AI accelerator hardware that qualcomm would make.
I think I saw something not unlike this with a samsung phone fiddling with the photographs that it takes.
The growth of the refurbished / second hand market for handsets is better news for the planet but the lack of critical updates for EOLed hardware is an unfortunate hinderance to even further growth.
