Qualcomm Is Bringing Deep Learning to Mobile Devices

The vendor’s  Neural Processing Engine SDK will run on smartphones and other devices powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 SoCs. Qualcomm wants to make mobile devices running its Snapdragon 820 processor even smarter.Company officials on May 2 introduced a deep-learning software development kit (SDK) for the ARM-based systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) that will enable device makers to run neural network models on their Snapdragon 820-powered products—including smartphones, security cameras, cars and drones—for such tasks as scene detection, text recognition, object avoidance, face and gesture recognition, and natural language processing.Other devices can do many of the same tasks, but what the Neural Processing Engine SDK will allow are those workloads to be processed without having to be connected to the cloud, according to Qualcomm officials. It’s based on Qualcomm’s Zeroth Machine Intelligence Platform, a…
