Qualcomm Machine Learning

The first cognitive computing platform from Qualcomm Technologies.

The mobile experiences of tomorrow will be defined by the devices that can adapt and learn from our every move — ultimately simplifying and enriching our daily lives. To help make this vision a reality, we are introducing the Qualcomm® Machine Learning platform.

Serving as the foundation for more intuitive experiences and natural interactions, the Qualcomm Machine Learning platform is designed to support on-device intelligence and cutting-edge cognitive capabilities. Not to mention it’s also built to scale across a wide range of experiences and implementations for automobiles, wearables, smartphones and client computing.

What experiences could you have if you didn’t have to rely on the cloud?

It used to be that the cloud allowed users to access analyze data in very large amounts—putting the process power outside the device itself. Although not bad, this required a connection to the cloud and time for the analysis to occur before action could be taken on it.

Now, with the advent of mobile processors capable enough of analyzing and processing large amounts of data very quickly, the need to go to the cloud all the time diminishes. And because of that, a new market of devices can use machine learning algorithms and software, to benefit the experience of their users.

On device machine learning via the power of Snapdragon processors.

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 835 processors from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. are designed to provide the tools necessary to harness the computing power of all of its cores, so that developers and OEMS can use machine learning to create new, rich, immersive experiences in areas such as photography, audio, and virtual and augmented reality to name a few. The possibilities are virtually limitless.

A foundation for a smarter future.

With Qualcomm Machine Learning, high-performance, low-power mobile machine learning is now possible on device.

The Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine

The first deep learning toolkit for mobile and edge devices from Qualcomm Technologies is the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ neural processing engine, a software framework optimized to utilize the heterogeneous compute capabilities of Snapdragon, designed to give OEMs and developers a powerful and energy efficient platform for delivering intuitive and engaging deep learning-driven experiences.

  • Efficient execution: Choose the right core for the right user experience – Qualcomm® Kryo™ CPU, Qualcomm® Adreno™ GPU or Qualcomm® Hexagon™ DSP and Hexagon Vector Extensions(HVX).
  • Common model framework support: Support for Caffe and Tensorflow and custom layers.
  • Broad market applications: Supports use cases in a broad range of industries, from healthcare to security, on myriad mobile and embedded devices.

Smart Protect Technology

Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ Smart Protect technology is designed to support robust, real-time detection of “zero-day” (or previously unknown) malware threats to mobile security and personal privacy. Snapdragon Smart Protect uses machine learning-based malware detection, hardware-based security, and system-wide optimization to deliver superior efficiency and performance.
