AI makes life more intuitive.

We’re scaling AI to create new possibilities.

Artificial intelligence applications and devices will transform industries, scaling the future of transportation, defining new opportunities for smart homes and cities, creating wide-reaching mobile XR experiences, and powering the factory of the future. And our AI leadership will help accelerate the commercialization and scale of AI—making AI ubiquitous around the globe.


We are researching and developing power-efficient AI technology, which is fundamental across industries and products, spanning from smartphones and automotive to the IoT and data centers. Our AI solutions offer many benefits, including user privacy, enhanced reliability, and efficient use of network bandwidth—allowing the mobile industry to scale AI to trillions of devices.

Power efficiency

Power efficiency is essential for AI. We research deep learning techniques for power-efficient implementations and optimization across hardware, algorithms, and software—with a focus on fundamentals to accelerate deep learning workloads at low power to maximize overall efficiency.


AI, through continuous learning, brings personalization to our devices, which is essential for superior user experiences. We research continuous learning techniques that allow adaption to user behavior and preferences, bringing a human-like understanding and behavior to IoT devices.


We have spent the past decade deep in AI research and development, resulting in the creation of the components necessary to scale AI across industries. To make AI ubiquitous, we’re focused on making efficient hardware, algorithmic advancements, and software tools available to developers and OEMs.

AI is transforming everything.

Qualcomm is making AI ubiquitous—a world where virtually everyone and everything is intelligently connected.

AI Tools and SDK

Our Qualcomm® Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine along with our AI software and hardware development tools help developers create and accelerate their AI applications and devices. The Qualcomm AI Engine is available on supported Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ platforms; this heterogeneous approach makes it easy for developers to select the optimal Snapdragon core for target performance and power efficiency requirements.
