Enabling the AI Revolution

As the application of AI becomes more pervasive across industries, it often encounters situations that present constraints in compute, storage, networking, power efficiency, and cost. By leveraging its cutting- edge technology, Qualcomm is extending beyond mobile to enable power efficient on-device AI and cloud AI processing.  We believe 5G will serve as the unifying connectivity fabric for the wireless edge, making it the key to unlocking on-device AI’s full potential.  Together, 5G and AI are the foundation of the next wave of innovation that will provide significant value to many industries and billions of people.  

Qualcomm Ventures is uniquely positioned to support startups that share the same vision of making AI ubiquitous from edge to the cloud.  By working closely with Qualcomm’s business units and AI Research team, we’re able to provide companies with domain expertise in AI and 5G technology as well as access to Qualcomm technology, helping them scale their business.
