Qualcomm Unleashes Deep Learning for Smartphones with New SDK

Your smartphone is about to get smarter. Qualcomm this week unveiled its new Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine, a deep learning software development kit (SDK) for devices that run on the company’s Snapdragon 820 processors. Using Qualcomm’s Zeroth Machine Intelligence Platform, the kit aims to deliver “intuitive and engaging deep learning-driven experiences on device,” including scene detection, text recognition, object tracking and avoidance, gesturing, face recognition and natural language processing. The Zeroth platform is currently the technology behind Qualcomm’s visual intelligence software – including Snapdragon Scene Detect – and advanced malware detection software, like that found in Snapdragon Smart Protect, the company said. Importantly, Qualcomm said the technology will allow OEMs to run their own neural network models on Snapdragon 820 devices – including smartphones, security cameras, automobiles and drones –…
