(Image Credit: iStockPhoto/eli_asenova) Qualcomm has announced it’s set to become the first mobile SOC provider to offer a deep-learning toolkit optimised for mobile. As the manufacturer of the most popular mobile processors in-use today, it’s always worth paying attention to Qualcomm’s developments and how the company’s technology will be harnessed in new and interesting ways.  The next SDK from Qualcomm, the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine, is due this summer and should help to deliver exciting new experiences. As you can guess from its name, the SDK will tap into machine learning techniques to help OEMs deliver engaging deep learning-driven experiences.  Qualcomm’s SDK will make use of their in-house Zeroth™ Machine Intelligence Platform to provide its smarts – which is currently used to drive visual intelligence software including Snapdragon Scene Detect, and the advanced malware detection software found in Snapdragon Smart Protect. Zeroth, as to be expected, is optimised to utilise Snapdragon’s heterogeneous…
