Qualcomm is shifting from communication to intelligent edge computing

【PhoneAuto News】Recently, PhoneAuto noticed that Qualcomm believes that the future of artificial intelligence (AI) will require computing power that is stronger than cloud computing itself. Alex Katouzian, senior vice president of Qualcomm, stated that the world’s largest smartphone processor manufacturer is transforming from a communication company to an “intelligent edge computing” company. Alex Katouzian also emphasized Qualcomm’s capabilities in artificial intelligence: to date, the company has shipped 2 billion products with AI functionality.

Alex Katouzian said: “As the number of connected devices and traffic continues to accelerate, and data center costs rise, it is impossible to send all content to the cloud.” “When it comes to personal information, people are also unwilling to do so.” In addition, Alex Katouzian believes that excess inventory caused by sluggish global mobile device demand will disappear in the third or fourth quarter of this year. He said that some of Qualcomm’s customers have started to increase orders for small parts, which is a leading indicator of rising demand.

Currently, Qualcomm is one of the main suppliers of smartphone chips in many people’s impressions. In the Android smartphone market, Qualcomm’s mobile platform has a high presence. Currently, their second-generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform is almost a standard configuration for flagship smartphones. Of course, previous 8-series mobile platforms were almost the same. It can be foreseen that the third-generation Snapdragon 8 mobile platform is likely to be released at the end of this year, which will greatly affect the development of Android flagship smartphones in 2024.
