Qualcomm and Google have teamed up to expand the AI capabilities of devices powered by Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon chipsets and Snapdragon processors. Through this partnership, both the companies, Qualcomm and Google will provide accurate AI feedback.
Ziad Asghar, vice president, product management, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc, said, “The ability to utilize Google’s NAS technology to create and optimize new AI models in a condensed time frame is a game-changer for our business. We are happy to be the first chipset company to work with Google Cloud on NAS and eager to roll out this technology to further our momentum in connecting the intelligent edge.”
Qualcomm and Google intend to combine Google Cloud Vertex AI Neural Architecture Search (NAS) with Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine to speed neural network development and differentiation for Qualcomm mobile, ACPC, and XR platforms, Snapdragon Ride Platform, and IoT platforms of Qualcomm Technologies.
June Yang, vice president, Cloud AI and Industry Solutions, Google Cloud, said, “Google Cloud’s Vertex AI NAS will give Qualcomm Technologies the ability to bring high accuracy AI with low latency to low-power devices such as IoT, medical imagery, automobile, and mobile devices, whilst ensuring memory and energy efficiency. With this collaboration, Qualcomm Technologies will now be able to build and optimize new AI models in weeks rather than months and we’re thrilled at the impact this will have on people using Snapdragon-powered devices.”
The Qualcomm Neural Processing SDK will become the developer’s access point to the Google Cloud Vertex AI NAS. Qualcomm Technologies’ platforms that use the Qualcomm AI Engine can benefit from speed improvements and optimizations.
