AI is transforming everything. We are making AI ubiquitous.

Today, more intelligence is moving to end devices, and mobile is becoming the pervasive AI platform. Building on the smartphone foundation and the scale of mobile, Qualcomm envisions making AI ubiquitous—expanding beyond mobile and powering other end devices, machines, vehicles, and things. We are inventing, developing, and commercializing power-efficient on-device AI, edge cloud AI, and 5G to make this a reality.

Creating new intuitive experiences and interactions.

AI enables devices and things to perceive, reason, and act intuitively. Drawing inspiration from the human brain, AI will expand our human abilities by serving as a natural extension of our senses. It will also personalize our experiences through seamless interactions in our everyday life.

Reshaping industries and creating new possibilities.

Gartner predicts that by 2021, AI augmentation will create $3.3 trillion of business value. On-device intelligence, along with cloud inference, is a key part of achieving these benefits across industries. On-device AI processing offers many benefits, including user privacy, immediacy, enhanced reliability, and efficient use of network bandwidth. The pace, scale, and high integration that drive the mobile industry will allow AI to scale to trillions of devices. The power-efficient AI technology that we research and develop is fundamental across industries and products, spanning from smartphones and automotive to the IoT and data centers.


Making all the things around us more intelligent.


Making our most personal device even more intuitive.


Making our cars more personalized and autonomous.

We are the R&D engine fueling the AI industry.

With over a decade of AI research and development, we are creating the essential components to scale AI across industries. To make AI ubiquitous, we are focused on efficient hardware, algorithmic advancements, and software tools. Our research is diverse, and we are keenly focused on power efficiency and personalization to make AI seamless across our everyday experiences.

Our primary areas of AI research and development.

Power efficiency

Power efficiency is essential for AI. We research deep learning techniques for power-efficient implementations across hardware, algorithms, and software. 


Personalization is essential for superior user experiences. We research continuous learning techniques that allow adaption to user behavior and preferences. 

AI and 5G will power the era of distributed intelligence.

Our technology inventions are not only driving power efficient AI, but are also leading the world to 5G—the foundation for an intelligently connected future. The combination of these two technology platforms, led by Qualcomm, will scale intelligence to trillions of connected things.

AI is here today.

With our industry-leading technology in 5G and low-power heterogeneous computing, we are well positioned to lead the AI revolution. We’ve introduced a broad portfolio of products across a variety of industries to make AI ubiquitous. From efficient AI hardware and software to comprehensive software development kits, we are collaborating with the industry to bring exciting new experiences to the world.
