Ziad Asghar, Vice President of Product Management at Qualcomm, presents the “What We Need to Transform Lives and Industries with On-Device AI, Cloud and 5G” tutorial at the May 2021 Embedded Vision Summit.

Every day, AI-enabled systems enhance how we live and work—and we’ve barely scratched the surface! These systems are poised to create new industries and dramatically improve the effectiveness, efficiency and safety of existing industries. In many cases, AI functionality will run at the edge—on small, inexpensive, battery-powered devices—creating an inexhaustible appetite for efficient AI processing.

Qualcomm is answering this demand with leading-edge AI processing and 5G connectivity features in its latest Snapdragon 888 processor powerhouse. In this talk, Asghar highlights key advances in the Snapdragon 888 and the capabilities they enable for emerging use cases in cloud-connected edge AI.
