Although this may seem trivial to your mobile experience, the fact that this is a dedicated logic board within the image sensor itself means that overall, your phone performance and battery life will not take a toll due to the processor having to process one less task. The chip also comes with the benefit of providing better security as certain keywords can be assigned to block peoples faces, prevent unwanted images from being stored within the memory, etc.
As of now, the IVS – Intelligent Vision Sensor, is currently a prototype. However, with Sony being one of the world’s leading providers of image sensors, it seems that in the near future our next smartphones will have this type of technology integrated into them, providing us with a more fluid mobile experience, camera improvements and most importantly, safety and privacy features.
