Reshaping industries and creating new possibilities.

Gartner predicts that by 2021, AI augmentation will create $3.3 trillion of business value. On-device intelligence is a key part of achieving these benefits across industries. On-device AI processing offers many benefits, including user privacy, faster response, enhanced reliability, and efficient use of network bandwidth. The pace, scale, and high integration that drive the mobile industry will allow AI to scale to trillions of devices. The AI technology that we research and develop is fundamental across industries and products, spanning from smartphones and automotive to the IoT.

Our primary areas of AI research and development.

Power efficiency

Power efficiency is essential for on-device AI. We research deep learning techniques for power-efficient implementations across hardware, algorithms, and software. 


Personalization is essential for superior user experiences. We research continuous learning techniques that allow adaption to user behavior and preferences. 

AI and 5G will power the era of distributed intelligence.

Our technology inventions are not only driving on-device AI, but are also leading the world to 5G—our next foundation for an intelligently connected future. The combination of these two technology platforms, led by Qualcomm, will scale intelligence to trillions of connected things.
