Qualcomm AI is transforming industries by accelerating global commercialization of AI.

Qualcomm AI makes the impossible possible with an expansive portfolio of platform solutions that gives our partners flexibility and reliability in designing high-quality AI apps and experiences.

The Qualcomm AI Engine is powering the future of industries.

Our leading fifth-generation Qualcomm® AI Engine packs 2x the performance of its predecessor. With the brand-new Qualcomm® Hexagon™ Tensor Accelerator, it pushes 15 trillion operations per second with maximum efficiency. This brilliant machine fuels intuitive mobile experiences in photography, gaming and voice interactions such as real-time AI translation. Integrated directly into the Qualcomm AI Engine, the all-new Qualcomm® Sensing Hub is designed to ensure highly accurate voice detection and always-on contextual awareness for smarter virtual assistants—all while using extremely low power.

Mobile AI

Our comprehensive hardware and software platform, custom built for mobile AI, is enabling new on-device AI features like real-time translation, virtual AI assistants, advanced camera functionality and more. On-device AI accelerates these user experiences with blazing-fast inference speeds and privacy while keeping data on the device.

Cloud AI

We utilized our heritage in mobile technology leadership to create an AI solution that’s designed to meet cloud AI inferencing needs for datacenter providers. The Qualcomm® Cloud AI 100 is built from the ground up to help accelerate AI experiences, providing a turn-key solution that is engineered to address the most important aspects of cloud AI inferencing—including low power consumption, scale, process node leadership, and signal processing expertise.

IoT Camera

IoT camera solutions of the future are possible with the Qualcomm® Vision Intelligence Platform and Qualcomm® Neural Processing SDKs. These enable on-device vision AI for smart home, retail, manufacturing, and logistics user cases.


We’re helping to improve automotive safety and pave the road to autonomous driving with tailored vehicle platforms and applied AI research initiatives. Our fully customizable Qualcomm® Snapdragon Ride™ Platform is an automated driving platform that is designed to provide the flexibility and scalability that automotive suppliers and auto makers need to deploy in-demand safety, convenience, and autonomous driving features.

Our AI portfolio helps enable our partners to build their best.
