Most mobile Machine Learning (ML) tasks, like image or voice recognition, are currently performed in the cloud.

However, the ability to perform machine learning tasks locally on your device, rather than remotely via the cloud, is becoming increasingly important. To help developers provide better machine learning-based enhancements, Qualcomm has launched a new brand to encapsulate its current ML offerings. The Qualcomm Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine consists of several hardware and software components that can be used, by app developers, to provide “AI-powered user...
