On-device AI with Developer-Ready Software Stacks
Still running your artificial intelligence workloads in the cloud? If your applications depend on techniques like person detection and pose estimation to name a few, then it’s time you looked into on-device AI.
Are you still running your artificial intelligence workloads in the cloud? That may make sense for training your models, but if your applications depend on techniques like person detection and pose estimation to name a few, then it’s time you looked into on-device AI.
With models running on devices at the network edge, you can make predictions and take action where the data resides. That’s faster, more secure and more reliable than running models in the cloud.
Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. has made its Qualcomm® QCS610 system on chip (SoC) with your application in mind, by combining high performance and low power consumption in a single package.
Designed for the internet of Things (IoT), our QCS610 has the computing power to run AI models in devices like IP cameras, dash cams, 360/VR cameras and wearables. In fact, with its heterogeneous-computing design, you can run multiple AI models simultaneously. This video shows you what that looks like …
We’ve built into our QCS610 a series of enhanced AI intrinsics for a 50-percent boost in throughput compared to previous models. That boost helps enable high-quality image processing and video while still taking it easy on power consumption.
Besides its prowess with AI, the QCS610 handles 4K Ultra HD video at 30fps. Its video capture and playback capabilities include advanced noise reduction and low-light performance. It’s equipped with dual image signal processors (ISP), hardware-based security, a video processing engine and audio codecs for multimedia and voice control.
Developers are keen for both software and hardware, so we’ve lined up tools you can use to get the most out of the QCS610.
- Qualcomm® Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine
- Qualcomm® Neural Processing SDK for AI
- AI Model Efficiency Toolkit (AIMET)
- Qualcomm® Connected Camera SDK
The QCS610 SoC offers enterprise-grade AI, video and connectivity (WI-FI 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Ethernet/RGMII) with low power consumption and solid developer tools. It’s ideal for edge applications like industrial IoT, smart AI enterprise security, home IP Cameras, dash cams, body cams, smart displays and videoconferencing.
