Qualcomm AI Research Introduction
Jun 8, 2018
“Machine learning algorithms such as deep learning already use large amounts of energy. And with AI increasingly moving to power-constrained edge devices, energy efficiency will only become more important. The benchmark that matters will be how much intelligence one can squeeze out of every joule of energy. I believe that Qualcomm is uniquely positioned to address this problem and be a key player in AI.”
- Professor Dr. Max Welling
VP of Technology, Qualcomm Technologies Netherlands B.V.
