Join the AI technology revolution.

The Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform is designed to make a wide range of devices smarter—everything from smartphones to vehicles—by constantly adapting to their users and their environment. This increase in intelligence and awareness helps make devices even more productive—creating rich, personalized, and intuitive user experiences. 

“We envision a world where devices, machines, automobiles, and things are much more intelligent— simplifying and enriching our daily lives.“

Matt Grob, Executive Vice President, Technology, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

The Qualcomm AI advantage

Efficient on-device intelligence

AI can now run completely on the device without the cloud—especially if it’s powered by Snapdragon. Privacy, reliability, latency, and efficient use of bandwidth are why you should care about this. And our heterogeneous computing capabilities provide high performance for AI features and applications.

Connectivity advantages

With 5G on the horizon, a wide range of smart, connected devices will exchange information directly with each other—and with the cloud—to create even more personalized and intelligent user experiences. Snapdragon mobile platforms support wireless technologies like Gigabit LTE, and soon 5G, for distributed computing architectures for AI.

Adapting to your every move.

Snapdragon mobile platforms with efficient on-device machines learning is designed to allow devices to operate with greater intelligence than ever before. Machine learning can enable powerful features like battery-efficient performance, immersive experiences, smart camera recognition, noise detection and elimination, and biometric security technologies.

Sensing with more human-like awareness.

Years of Qualcomm research have resulted in innovative on-device AI capabilities like machine learning and computer vision. They enable our devices to get to know our patterns and behaviors over time, so that they can sense and anticipate our needs. Acting as natural human extensions, they have the ability to listen, recognize and respond/react more intuitively.

IoT plus AI takes intelligence to a whole new level.

IoT made devices smart. Our AI solutions make devices even smarter. Now your robot vacuum doesn’t just sweep the floor, it will mop up the baby’s mess when it hears her cry. Your security camera recognizes Fido, but notifies you immediately when an intruder steps onto your front porch. Even street lamps will be smarter, detecting traffic patterns or searching for specific license plates. 

That’s the power of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors and machine learning, an extra level of intelligence that identifies people, sounds and even events—making everyday life safer, easier and more personal.

Develop experiences people want. No cloud required.

The Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine (NPE) software development kit (SDK) helps developers best determine which compute core to run applications with deep neural networks on devices with premium-tier Snapdragon mobile platforms—all without needing a connection to the cloud.
