Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf opened Uplinq 2014 with a rousing message for mobile app developers: advancements in connectivity and computing are expanding the Internet in all-new directions—enabling more, and new kinds of devices with advanced capabilities, that live at what he called “the new network edge.”

Highlights from the keynote include a look at recently released SDKs for LTE Broadcast and Qualcomm Vuforia for digital eyewear.

Special guest Jay Parikh, from Facebook, talked about his company’s long collaboration with Qualcomm on optimizations for Facebook and now Instagram—and pointed out that 400 million of Facebook’s 1 billion users solely access its services via their mobile devices.

A demo featuring the Snapdragon Rover gave attendees a real-time look at machine learning for robots. It was joined onstage by its smaller counterpart, the Snapdragon Micro Rover, which is now available at qualcomm.com/robots to make it easy for developers to create advanced vision-based robotics applications.

As noted by Mollenkopf, Qualcomm products are opening the door to new devices, apps, and services and expanding mobile’s reach deeper into areas like the connected home, the auto, health care, and more. He called upon developers to take advantage of Qualcomm’s many tools to unleash their creativity, to build the next generation of mobile experiences for consumers.
