To Infinity and Beyond with the Snapdragon 675

There is more than meets the eye in the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 chip. The chip is built for optimal performance and for a pure gaming experience.

Furthermore, the technology will load games as well as create smoother cross-play capabilities. However, the Snapdragon 675 is also made with artificial intelligence in mind.

The new technology will adapt to the user transforming the user's device into a more personalized experience. The chip enhances faster facial recognition as well as the capability to complete voice recognition tasks.

Beyond daily devices, we are already seeing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 used in security devices. The new devices are under the Vision Intelligence Platform and used in security functions like facial recognition for police cameras and military use.

We see the new chip as a launch pad for independently thinking robots. For example, take the power of Google, add Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 to a Boston Dynamics robot. With this in mind,  we now have a fully functioning, independent thinking autonomous robot.

This frightening concept isn't new. In fact, the latest Cheetah Robot created by MIT uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 675. The chip uses the 675 chip to detect and keep locational functions so it can't get lost. However, it can also be used to recognizes people and terrain.

Soon enough your phone will be a gaming partner or a physical robot assistant. Like C3PO or Ironman's Jarvis. Leave us a not below and tell us how you would use technology would it be a robot, a device to save the world or for the greater evil?

None the less, get ready for the world of gaming to go completely mobile in the coming year. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 is available for public design in early 2019.

Artificial Intelligence: Snapdragon 675 Mobile Platform with a multi-core AI Engine is engineered to deliver up to 50% overall improvements in AI applications. The multi-core AI Engine is designed to improve mobile devices’ ability to acquire information and become the ultimate personal assistant by capturing photos and videos, learning and adapting to a user’s voice, and optimizing battery life. Through heterogenous computing, the Hexagon DSP, Adreno GPU, and Kryo CPU– are engineered to work cooperatively to run AI applications on-device faster and more efficiently. Additional AI use cases supported on Snapdragon 675 include camera (scene and object detection, image style transfer, portrait relighting), security (face unlock, payment security), voice and translation. Global ISVs also support the platform including Megvii (Face++), NetEase, SenseTime, Thundersoft, and Trio.AI. ~ Qualcomm
