Qualcomm Showcased Connected Intelligent Edge & Latest AI Advancements In KL

Qualcomm Connected Intelligent Edge and AI showcase

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc held an event in Kuala Lumpur on 29 March 2023 to showcase its latest advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) and the potential of Connected Intelligent Edge.

As part of its ongoing campaign, “The Edge of Possible”, the event highlighted the significance of driving edge computing innovations to transform industries, power new consumer experiences, and fuel the growth of the digital economy.

What Is Connected Intelligent Edge?

Qualcomm has revealed real life usage scenarios for the Connected Intelligent Edge, which is the convergence of 5G networks, edge computing, and AI, allowing data to be processed and analyzed in real-time, allowing faster decision-making and response times.

One such example would be in healthcare, where Connected Intelligent Edge devices monitor patients in real time, providing medical professionals with vital data to provide better care. For example, Connected Intelligent Edge devices can track a patient’s vital signs, such as blood pressure and heart rate, and send the information to healthcare providers in real-time.

Connected Intelligent Edge devices are also being used in transportation to make vehicles safer and more efficient. For example, sensors placed throughout a car can monitor its performance and provide real-time data to the driver, alerting them to any issues.

Keeping Enterprise Environments Safe with Smart Devices

Connected intelligent camera solutions can secure and safeguard enterprise environments, transform enterprise security and public safety segments, and optimize business operations.

For example, security camera sensors are rapidly transitioning from Full HD (FHD) to 4K resolutions. Camera makers are adding multiple sensors to a single camera unit, enabling higher utilization of the underlying hardware. Modern security cameras have increased compute capabilities, and companies are innovating with newer machine-learning models for various use cases, such as people and object detection, and vehicle recognition.

The AI Box is an intelligent edge device that supports traditional IP camera video streams to be offloaded and processed via the box — powered by system-on-chip(SOC)s designed for high compute and high concurrency of machine learning-based analytics across multiple camera streams.

For instance, the Qualcomm QS8250 and Qualcomm QRB5165 can decode incoming video streams and run AI models on each stream concurrently, requiring very little power to operate. Furthermore, 5G enables more time-sensitive and bandwidth-intensive applications.

Convergence of the PC & Mobile

AI-enabled PCs offer improved video conferencing experiences, including noise suppression, background blur, auto-framing, and eye gaze correction. Qualcomm and Microsoft collaborated on Snapdragon to enable these new AI-accelerated experiences for Windows 11 — without impacting performance and power efficiency. Instead, Snapdragon intelligently offloads these computationally intensive tasks to a dedicated AI engine, which frees up the CPU and GPU resources.

Also, AI is powering new remote device management protocols, zero-touch deployments and advanced endpoint security because a large portion of the workforce is no longer on-site. AI in PCs can also use Wi-Fi as a proximity detector to better secure the privacy of PCs.

Adding on-device AI processing to powerful CPU and GPU capabilities adds the ability to offload compute-intensive processes. As a result, performance is dramatically increased, delivering a higher user experience.

Qualcomm also elaborated that x86-based systems primarily rely on CPU and GPU for compute-intensive modeling. By leveraging the dedicated AI engine, Snapdragon delivers all these experiences on the AI engine while freeing up CPU and GPU resources and optimizing for extended battery life.

As applications are optimized for Snapdragon, developers can start to take advantage of the on-device AI and have access to new ways to personalize the user experience.

Chip developers are integrating artificial intelligence capabilities into enterprise PCs, which will become more prevalent. The aim is to provide enterprises with the right computing power to run their workforces effectively.
