Qualcomm Showcases Machine Learning On A Snapdragon SoC

Machine learning is advancing in a fast pace and the technology is becoming very accessible for common users. An example of that is Google Now, the personal digital assistant, that learns things about a user and is capable of taking decisions on what information you are most likely to find useful. However, in order for a computer system to make real-time calculations of general and (for us) trivial daily things, a large computational structure is needed, including petaflops of processing power, enormous amounts of RAM and really large amounts of electricity. As such, with the technology existent today, you simply cannot run something like a Google Now query on your smartphone, it doesn’t matter how powerful it is. You may have noticed that in order to use the assistant, you…
