As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to revolutionize personal computing and mobile experiences worldwide, there's growing speculation about its potential to rejuvenate the sluggish growth of tablets. With AI's ability to enhance user interactions, optimize performance, and personalize experiences, it's conceivable that integrating this technology into tablets could reignite consumer interest and spur innovation in the tablet market.

Although the global tablet market has started to show some signs of recovery in the first quarter of this year (in January-March), as per the IDC - the real gains are yet to come after more than two years of decline.

Anuroopa Nataraj, a senior research analyst with IDC, said that the real gains will come from the next refresh cycle, and will be "followed by growth within commercial segments as more tablets are used in the education sector and the gig economy".

However, these factors will not help as competition from PCs and smartphones will "contribute to a lacklustre outlook for the tablet market".

Meanwhile, global tablet shipments registered a modest growth of 0.5 per cent (year-on-year) in the first quarter this year, reaching 30.8 million units.

Tech giant Apple saw a lull last year due to "poor economy and the absence of new models" and declined 8.5 per cent (YoY).

The company is set to launch new iPads next week. South Korean company Samsung was second with 6.7 million units in the first quarter, a decline of 5.8 per cent, according to the report.

Recently, Elon Musk's X platform reportedly started to roll out a new feature. The platform will get a new 'Stories' feature which will help to leverage Grok AI technology on the platform. The new feature will let the platform users access the summarized versions of trending posts on the platform.

Also, Apple joined the race of artificial intelligence, by releasing their own generative AI models for commercial use. The company will further work actively in the AI space and as per the recent release of the Open-source Efficient Language Models (OpenELM), (by the researchers) which is a series of four very small language models Face model library.
