Scientists are developing an artificial intelligence (AI) system that breaks free from the internet and cloud computing, and provides greater privacy to users.

New deep-learning AI software produced with that technology is compact enough to fit on mobile computer chips for use in everything from smartphones to industrial robots.

That would allow devices to operate independent of the internet while using AI that performs almost as well as tethered neural networks.

"We feel this has enormous potential," said Alexander Wong, from the University of Waterloo in Canada.

"This could be an enabler in many fields where people are struggling to get deep-learning AI in an operational form," Wong said.
