Generative AI is the New OS

This week at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), two companies showcased devices that provides a captivating glimpse of a future without smartphones as we know them. The world is heading into what we call a smartphone evolution.

The devices, from Rabbit and Humane, are wearables and represent a significant stride forward in accessible tech. The Rabbit handheld runs on an operating system that incorporates the innovative Large Action Mode (LAM). The best part of it is that it ensures users of the data that it holds and doesn’t store sensitive information. The human AI Pin is a futuristic gadget that is guaranteed to blow you away. It gives you a one-of-a-kind experience with generative AI that can be projected on your palm.

The question which might have popped into your mind is, ‘what’s wrong with my smartphone? Wasn’t it just yesterday when we thought of smartphones as a necessity?

The answer is generative AI, which has become the backbone of every product operating system. This is why big tech companies are integrating Generative AI into their products.

Jerry Yue, founder and CEO of Brain Technologies, states that he has a new vision for the future of smartphones. The idea might seem farfetched, but it isn’t. It all began this year with Samsung when they added multiple AI features to their Galaxy s24. The difference in this case is the use of generative AI, and the technology behind Gemini and GPT. The use of tech behind goes much further than the current implementations on the ground. On hardware perspective basis, it looks like a standard smartphone but on a software perspective this is where your mind as a user would be blown away.

Impact of these Futuristic Smartphones

Yue mentioned that the phone system will pull 7,000 retail sites at launch. What the user can do is prioritize the results by the businesses and retailers that he or she wants.

Yue stated that “From a privacy and security perspective, we want to give a new level of control that people don’t have right now,” Yue. “The computer’s understanding of you, now it’s aggregated into different apps. These AI models are black boxes — recommendation machines that exploit our attention. We believe in explainable AI. We will be explaining to you, each step of the way, why we are making a recommendation. You have more people owning the AI and not big tech black boxes.”

As we advance in tech, cyberattacks are also advancing and becoming more frequent. If such futuristic devices can fight for our privacy and security, then how convenient would this be for users?

Yue continued to state that the main aim of the whole project is still connectivity due to it being the most vital. One of a million reasons why Deutsche Telekom is invested in the product is that it cannot exist the same way as it would without 5G.
