Qualcomm’s Deep Learning Tool To Make Mobile Devices Smarter, More Secure

A new software development kit from Qualcomm aims to bring machine-learning capabilities to smartphones and other mobile devices powered by its chips. The SDK, known as the Qualcomm Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine, will allow original equipment manufacturers to design and run their own neural network models on devices powered by the company’s Snapdragon 820 chip, without requiring a connection to the cloud. The SDK will also represent the first deep learning toolkit optimized for a mobile system-on-a-chip (SoC) platform such as Snapdragon. That could potentially open up a range of new capabilities for mobile devices, including scene detection, text recognition, object tracking and avoidance, gesturing, face recognition and natural language processing, according to the company.On-Device Deep Learning “The demand for untethered, mobile learning-driven user experiences is increasing rapidly and Qualcomm…
