Snapdragon SoCs to get Neural Processing Engine SDK

Qualcomm announced a deep learning toolkit for implementing neural processing and other AI functions directly on devices that integrate Snapdragon 820 SoCs. The “Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine” is Qualcomm’s first deep learning software development kit for devices based on its Snapdragon 820 SoCs. The SDK, which is due for release in the second half of 2016, brings the company’s “Zeroth Machine Intelligence Platform” to Snapdragon 820 based devices. Movidius Fathom Qualcomm’s SDK was one of two solutions introduced in conjunction with this week’s Embedded Vision Summit in Silicon Valley, that allow running advanced AI algorithms directly on mobile or embedded devices without relying on cloud processing. The other is the Movidius Fathom USB stick, which is billed as “the world’s first embedded neural network accelerator.” Both solutions should come in…
