When it comes to IoT, it’s all about the camera — specifically, the intelligent camera. Made possible by powerful computing power at the edge with AI and Machine Learning, intelligent cameras are already powering smart connected spaces in manufacturing, agriculture, auto, and more industries across the globe.

“The Internet of Things is not just about the connectivity of things, but also about the compute power of them as well,” said James Blackman, editor of Enterprise IoT Insights, on this episode of the Qualcomm Podcast.

To chat all things camera and IoT, host PJ Jacobowitz is joined by James and our own Megha Daga, Qualcomm Technologies Inc. director of product management heading up AI in IoT. Aside from the role these technologies play together, the trio also breaks down some applications already in use, the vital role of camera intelligence during the pandemic, and future benefits for industries and our lives.

Additionally, Megha tells us a little about the new Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform SoCs, which can enable even the tiniest IoT products with compute capabilities like that of a flagship Snapdragon-powered Smartphone.
