Qualcomm Bolsters Position in Artificial Intelligence Research, Outlines its Vision for the Future

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated (NASDAQ: QCOM), today laid out its vision for ubiquitous on-device artificial intelligence (AI) complementing cloud AI. We envision a world where AI makes devices, machines, automobiles, and things much more intelligent, simplifying and enriching our daily lives. In 2007, Qualcomm started exploring spiking neuron approaches to machine learning for computer vision and motion control applications, and later expanded the scope of the research to look not just at biologically inspired approaches but artificial neural networks — primarily deep learning. Fast forward to today, Qualcomm Technologies is announcing the acquisition of Scyfer B.V., a company affiliated with University of Amsterdam and focused on cutting-edge machine learning techniques, to add a talented team to its roster. Scyfer has built AI solutions for companies worldwide and in a number of different industries, such as manufacturing, healthcare and finance. “We started fundamental research a decade ago, and our current products now support many AI use cases from computer vision and natural language processing to malware detection on a variety of devices — such as smartphones and cars — and we are researching broader topics, such as AI for wireless connectivity, power management and photography,” said Matt Grob, executive vice president, technology, Qualcomm Incorporated. “
