Jan 18, 2018

Qualcomm products mentioned within this post are offered by Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. and/or its subsidiaries.

What do we mean when we say “mobile platform?” Why is “heterogeneous computing” important? And why should you care that the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform features “new architectures” for artificial intelligence and immersion? In our first Snapdragon 845 episode of the Qualcomm Podcast, our fearless host PJ Jacobowitz gets you answers to those questions and more.

PJ is joined by guests Cisco Cheng and Jerry Chang who take us behind the scenes of what is involved in the innovation and technology behind this dynamic premium-tier mobile platform that is destined for flagship Android mobile devices this year.

Along the way, you’ll learn how The Shining, Ant Man, and Honey I Shrunk the Kids fit in, wonder if “newness” is a word, and find out why Jerry is probably cooler than all of us.
