We envision a world where devices, machines, automobiles, and things are much more intelligent, simplifying and enriching our daily lives. They will be able to perceive, reason, and take intuitive actions based on awareness of the situation, improving just about any experience and solving problems that to this point we’ve either left to the user, or to more conventional algorithms.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the technology driving this revolution. You may think that AI is really about big data and the cloud, and yet Qualcomm’s solutions already have the power, thermal, and processing efficiency to run powerful AI algorithms on the actual device. Our current products now support many AI use cases, such as computer vision, natural language processing, and malware detection — both for smartphones and autos — and we are researching broader topics, such as AI for wireless connectivity, power management, and photography.
