    So basically for spying devices (face recognition)
    The more you live, less you die. More you play, more you die. Isn't it great.

    When a manufacturer of an SOC puts in front how it is really good in image processing thanks to its AI co-processor?

    Anyone involved in machine learning does the same - image processing is probably the most impactful use of ML, for eg. classifying tumour vs healthy tissue samples, or processing radio-images.

    I think Microprocessors need a kick up the design backside as adding a few more herts or more cache is becoming slightly boring just to obtain a small percentage gain in IPC (Instructions per clock cycle). So AI copro sounds interesting!
