With the recent launch of the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine (NPE) SDK, we previously highlighted the importance of on-device processing for time-critical AI applications. For example, the ability for self-driving cars make instant decisions - identifying and avoiding an obstacle in the road as near to the time it was detected, rather than following a trip across the network to a server in the cloud.

AI processing at the edge is inherently complex, but the Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile platform has the power and flexibility to help developers with an advanced, heterogeneous computational architecture, supporting optimized tools, libraries and AI frameworks. With the Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine (NPE) SDK, developers can further tune the performance of AI applications relying on Caffe/Caffe2 and TensorFlow deep learning frameworks, with less effort.

\n

Now we’d like to take this topic one step further by exploring some example AI applications where on-device computation can provide differentiation and critical advantage.

\n

Evolving from Object Recognition to Object Tracking and Predictive Modelling

\n

Modern, cloud-based photo sharing and storage services offer object and facial recognition as a standard feature, allowing you to quickly filter huge image libraries. It’s a remarkable feat requiring significant computing power. Life would be simpler if every photo comprised a single object of interest, but that’s rarely the case. Not only must multiple objects in a photo be identified and labelled, judgement is required to select the most important elements in the image for classification.

\n

Object tracking and the predictive modelling required to support real-time, intelligent decision-making from a range of sensor inputs offers an even greater challenge. Imagine the possibilities:

\n\n

Devices delivering these types of application will require the processing power to detect, understand and react to a host of environments and events with critical pace and precision.

\n

Natural Language Processing, Speech and Speaker Recognition

\n

Advances in speech recognition allow us to control car navigation, in-home entertainment and use voice-activated personal assistants for simple tasks such as information queries, calendar management and device control. Speech recognition accurately identifies words being spoken, but on its own it lacks important context. Recognizing the speaker can significantly improve the utility of personal assistants, particularly in secure applications, while natural language understanding goes beyond speech recognition to support deeper comprehension of what is being communicated.

\n

Enhanced applications could include:

\n\n

These examples demonstrate compelling use cases where on-device AI is advantageous compared to traditional, cloud-based processing. The Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine (NPE) allows developers to harness deep learning on-device using models trained with TensorFlow or Caffe2, achieving superior performance through the Snapdragon mobile platform heterogeneous computing architecture.

\n

Together, these technologies greatly enhance delivery of today’s AI-driven applications, such as real-time image processing and language translation. They also open the door to innovation, giving developers the time, tools and processing power to realize tomorrow’s intelligent user experiences.

\n

According to IDC, less than 1% of software developers incorporate cognitive capabilities into their applications today. That figure is expected to exceed 50% by 2018. Advanced mobile applications and automated system features, such as voice and speech recognition, object recognition and tracking - that typically require datacenter processing - could be fully supported on-device, with low-latency sensing and inference.

\n

MWC Americas is taking place this week in San Francisco, and as the mobile industry comes together to showcase what’s next, one topic in particular features prominently at the show: Gigabit LTE.

\n

Gigabit LTE has become a global wireless phenomenon, and Qualcomm Technologies has been at the forefront of this exciting evolution of LTE technology on the path to 5G.

\n

There are many reasons for Gigabit LTE’s rise to prominence. Apart from the incredible peak speeds that it makes possible, Gigabit LTE increases network capacity and improves download speeds, opens up exciting possibilities for new mobile experiences, and lays a strong foundation on which future 5G NR networks will be built.

\n

It all began with the announcement of the very first commercial Gigabit LTE modem— the Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE modem — in February of 2016. Less than one year later, Qualcomm Technologies, Telstra, NETGEAR and Ericsson together launched the first Gigabit LTE mobile device and network.

\n

Since then, Gigabit LTE momentum has only accelerated. There are now 38 operators serving 1.2B LTE subscriptions in 23 countries deploying or trialing Gigabit LTE, including the four major U.S. operators. Several are using LTE in unlicensed spectrum, an innovation pioneered by Qualcomm Technologies, to achieve Gigabit LTE speeds. LTE in unlicensed technologies makes it possible for a much greater number of operators around the world to offer Gigabit LTE service to their users.

To illustrate the power of these technologies, we are demonstrating Gigabit LTE using Licensed Assisted Access (LAA) technology together with AT&T and Ericsson at MWC Americas. The demonstration will use the Samsung Galaxy Note8, one of the latest Gigabit LTE-capable smartphones, to demonstrate breathtaking speeds and new experiences including 3D VR video.

\n

This demonstration with the Galaxy Note8 brings to light another key fact: when it comes to handsets, Gigabit LTE is currently a feature that’s unique to premium Android smartphones. Android OEMs have consistently led the way in bringing the latest LTE technologies to users, and this leadership continues with Gigabit LTE. We are excited that we have empowered leading smartphone makers in the Android ecosystem to bring some of the most advanced wireless technologies, which enhance every connected app and mobile experience, to users around the globe. In total, there are currently 10 smartphones and four mobile broadband devices that are Gigabit LTE capable, all thanks to the Snapdragon X16 LTE modem.

But we are not resting on our laurels. Instead, we are charging forward with our second generation Gigabit LTE modem — Snapdragon X20, the world’s first announced Cat 18 LTE modem — breaking through the Gigabit barrier and further enhancing network capacity and real user data rates.

\n

Just a few weeks ago, we demonstrated the power of the Snapdragon X20 LTE modem for the very first time with Verizon and Ericsson. And just a few days ahead of MWC Americas, we achieved a new world record —1.175 Gbps —with T-Mobile and Nokia, and are working now with mobile OEMs to commercialize devices powered by the Snapdragon X20 LTE modem in the first half of 2018.

\n

As we continue to push the envelope with 4G technologies in the real world, Qualcomm is laying a strong foundation for its leadership in 5G, forging ahead with new trial systems that will drive ecosystem readiness for 5G NR launches in 2019. Our new mmWave 5G NR prototype system, with an RF front end designed in a smartphone form factor, will be used to show that, despite mmWave’s challenges, Qualcomm Technologies is uniquely positioned to overcome them and make the technology viable for mobile devices and network.

\n

Let us take this moment to celebrate the great work that Qualcomm and other technology leaders in the mobile ecosystem have achieved together, to keep it the most vibrant and most dynamic technology platform in history.

\n

The mobile industry is on the cusp of 5G as technology leaders like Qualcomm are working feverishly to contribute to the standard. On the path to 5G, operators will continue to add more network capacity using newer 4G technologies to address the growing appetite of mobile device users who continually demand faster data speeds. Gigabit LTE makes this possible and serves as the foundation for future 5G networks, using carrier aggregation, 4X4 MIMO, 256-QAM, and the ability to operate over both licensed and unlicensed spectrum. To help explain these concepts, imagine the LTE network as a highway for trucks that carry the data you want to download…

\n

Carrier aggregation widens the highway

\n

\n

Carrier aggregation adds more lanes to the network’s highway by combining multiple carriers — that is, multiple LTE connections—which provides more capacity and enables faster downloads for all users.

\n

4x4 MIMO creates another layer of lanes

\n

\n

\n

4x4 MIMO improves operator spectrum efficiency and boosts the data rate for Gigabit LTE devices. Whereas carrier aggregation widens the network highway, 4x4 MIMO adds up to two more layers of data lanes on top of the existing ones to carry more data on the same amount of spectrum.

\n

256-QAM is a big truck that carries lots of data

\n

\n

\n

The gold standard for data rates was 6 bits per signal but that data transfer volume recently pumped up to 8 bits, delivering 33 percent faster connection speeds for Gigabit LTE devices. Using our highway analogy, 256-QAM allows each truck to carry more data, which means fewer trucks are needed, which relieves congestion on the network highway.

\n

LTE in Unlicensed Spectrum puts the pedal to the metal

\n

\n

\n

Get off the congested network highway and take the side streets with LTE in Unlicensed Spectrum. LTE in Unlicensed boosts network capacity in high traffic areas like stadiums, shopping malls, airports, and more with Gigabit LTE speed for a high quality and robust user experience.

\n

Qualcomm Technologies continues its trailblazing inventions in mobile connectivity, pioneering the world’s first annoucned Gigabit LTE cellular modem with the Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE modem. Since then, a total of 10 Gigabit LTE-capable devices have been brought to users all over the world with this groundbreaking modem at their heart. We push the technological envelope, continually evolving Gigabit LTE network highways in order to better deliver wide-area coverage, high-speed data rates and low latency in support of countless use cases and upcoming releases.
