Qualcomm SDK brings neural nets to mobile

  • Author:Ella Cai
  • Release on:2017-07-26
Qualcomm has brought out a SDK for its Snapdragon Neural Processing Engine (NPE).

The NPE provides developers with software tools to accelerate deep neural network workloads on mobile and other edge devices powered by Snapdragon processors.

Developers can choose the  Snapdragon they want  – the Kryo CPU, Adreno GPU or Hexagon DSP.

Developers can use deep learning user experiences like style transfers and filters (augmented reality), scene detection, facial recognition, natural language understanding, object tracking and avoidance, gesturing, and text recognition to name a few.

Facebook is integrating  the NPE into the camera of the Facebook app to accelerate Caffe2-powered AR features.

The NPE  is compatible with Snapdragon 600 and 800 Series Mobile Platforms and supports common deep learning frameworks such as Caffe, Caffe2 and Tensorflow, and also offers support for custom layers.

The SDK includes runtime software, libraries, APIs, offline model conversion tools, sample code, documentation, and debugging and benchmarking tools.
