Transforming nearly everything with on-device intelligence.

Qualcomm Technologies is on a mission to make devices, machines, vehicles, and things more intelligent for users. Our on-device artificial intelligence (AI) is designed to learn and adapt to user behavior and environments through on-device processing—powering intuitive, immersive experiences and interactions, and transforming our world in areas including mobile, the Internet of Things (IoT), and automotive. 

Explore AI-powered experiences.


AI capabilities in a mobile device’s camera means users can take better video and sharper pictures effortlessly. We work with software vendors around the world to create applications powered through neural networks to do many things, including deblur, reduce noise, zoom, segment the scene, and more—all so your pictures are the best they can be.

Extended reality

AI brings extended reality (XR) to life, creating a natural user interface that organically responds to speech and movement patterns. On-device AI processing is essential for intuitive virtual and augmented reality interactions. Our AI solutions are helping to create more engaging XR apps ranging from travel and enterprise industries to education and retail.

AI personal assistant

Our on-device AI moves beyond basic digital assistant capabilities to truly personalize mobile devices using voice and speech recognition. And a separate Qualcomm® Hexagon™ audio DSP means more dedicated space for AI, voice/audio, and other computer vision features.

Meet the high-performance engine that makes AI even smarter.

We continue our strong heritage in heterogeneous computing with the powerful Qualcomm® AI Engine, which makes compelling on-device AI experiences possible in areas such as the camera, extended battery life, audio, security, and gaming. Available on devices equipped with Snapdragon mobile platforms 660 and higher, our AI Engine’s hardware includes a Hexagon Vector Processor, a Qualcomm® Adreno™ GPU, and a Qualcomm® Kryo™ CPU, and software features includes a Neural Processing (NP) SDK, the Hexagon NN, common neural network framework support, as well as  and for the Android Neural Network (NN API). All these components help ensure better overall AI performance, regardless of a network connection.

The Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform is the ultimate personal assistant.

The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 855 Mobile Platform packs four times the performance of its already-exceptional predecessor—ushering in an intuitive new world of device capabilities. From voice assistance to camera intelligence to XR eye and hand tracking, the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform innovates at a whole new level—and signals the dawn of a 5G world with AI at the edge.
