Felix Baum, Director of Product Management at Qualcomm, presents the “Hate It Or Love It, Your Neural Network Software Stack Defines Application Performance and Reach” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit.
Qualcomm has invested extensively in its state-of-the-art Qualcomm Neural Network and software stack, including the Qualcomm Neural Processing SDK and the AI Model Efficiency Toolkit. These toolkits have helped many developers take their applications to the next level with extreme efficiency and performance.
In this talk, Baum explains some of the most common misconceptions related to AI software stacks and frameworks, and how key attributes of these tools, directly and indirectly, impact application performance, the ability of developers with diverse skill levels to use the tools, and the ability to scale applications across processor performance tiers. If you are interested in improving your application performance or incorporating machine learning into your performance-sensitive application, this talk is for you.
