Qualcomm introduces new deep learning SDK for the Snapdragon 820

Qualcomm today launched a new software development kit for its Snapdragon 820 processor: the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine. The company’s new SDK is built for Zeroth, a machine intelligence platform. According to the company, the new SDK will allow companies to run (limited) deep learning programs locally on your devices, such as your smartphone. With the new SDK, users can also get better privacy as the system will not be uploading much data to the cloud, as all the deep learning will be done locally if your device comes with a Snapdragon 820. Here are some of the other features of the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine: Accelerated runtime for on-device execution of convolutional and recurrent neural networks on the Snapdragon 820 cores (Qualcomm Kryo CPU, Qualcomm Adreno GPU, Qualcomm Hexagon DSP);…
