Ziad Asghar, Vice President of Product Management at Qualcomm, presents the “Powering the Connected Intelligent Edge and the Future of On-Device AI,” tutorial at the May 2022 Embedded Vision Summit.
Qualcomm is leading the realization of the “connected intelligent edge,” where the convergence of wireless connectivity, efficient computing and distributed AI will power the devices and experiences that you deserve. In this talk, Asghar explores some of the key challenges in deploying AI across diverse edge products in markets including mobile, automotive, XR, IoT, robotics and PCs — and some of the important differences in the AI requirements of these applications.
Asghar identifies unique AI features that will be needed as physical and digital spaces converge in what is now called the “metaverse”. He highlights key AI technologies offered within Qualcomm products, and how the company connects them to enable the connected intelligent edge. Finally, he shares his vision of the future of on-device AI — including on-device learning, efficient models, state-of-the-art quantization, and how Qualcomm plans to make this vision a reality.
