Qualcomm is developing brain inspired neural processing units. Qualcomm’s technologies are designed from the ground-up with speed and power efficiency in mind. Qualcomm Zeroth products will not only mimic human-like perception but also have the ability to learn how biological brains do. Instead of preprogramming behaviors and outcomes with a lot of code, we’ve developed a suite of software tools that enable devices to learn as they go and get feedback from their environment.
