Qualcomm's new Snapdragon chip promises more power, less battery drain

Mashable

Qualcomm's chips are powering some of the most powerful Android phones around, and now the company has a new flagship chip that is both faster and more energy efficient than its predecessor. The awkwardly named Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 (seriously, what's wrong with just a simple number?) is up to 10% faster than its predecessor, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, while drawing 30% less power. These improvements should be visible both in mobile gaming and regular use, thanks to the chip's new Adreno GPU and the new Kryo CPU. For an idea of what you can expect performance-wise, some of the phones touting Snapdragon's last chip include the OnePlus 10 Pro and the Xiaomi 12 Pro. The new chip will enable phones to take 8K HDR video, with support for the HDR10 format.


For AI model success, utilize MLops and get the data right

#artificialintelligence

We are excited to bring Transform 2022 back in-person July 19 and virtually July 20 - 28. Join AI and data leaders for insightful talks and exciting networking opportunities. It's critical to adopt a data-centric mindset and support it with ML operations Artificial intelligence (AI) in the lab is one thing; in the real world, it's another. Many AI models fail to yield reliable results when deployed. Others start well, but then results erode, leaving their owners frustrated. Many businesses do not get the return on AI they expect. Why do AI models fail and what is the remedy?


Exciting Data Science Project Ideas To Brush Up Your Skills

#artificialintelligence

Projects have always been thought of as measurable improvements resulting from a result produced, which serve as the icing on the cake for achieving personal or corporate goals. Talking about individual projects, have you found it challenging to learn at home? Many of us are in the same boat -- there are far too many things to handle during these trying times, and learning has taken a back seat, contrary to our expectations. So, what are our options for getting back on track? How can we apply what we have learned about data science in the real world? Picking an open-source data science project and sticking with it is extremely beneficial.

How AI is transforming remote cardiac care for patients - MedCity News

#artificialintelligence

The pandemic accelerated the advancement of artificial intelligence (AI) in remote patient care. Physicians are increasingly using digital patient monitoring to better track health data, identify abnormalities, and provide patient-specific treatment -- all without the need for in-person interaction. Additionally, emergency departments are employing remote monitoring solutions to allow some patients to leave the hospital sooner. These transformative technologies are leading to better outcomes for patients and reduced healthcare costs. AI use cases continue to grow in healthcare, as constant learning and training of algorithms results in smarter technology as well as improved patient experiences. Most AI applications in healthcare use "augmented intelligence," which curates the algorithms' output to provide clinicians with direction on "where to look" when they get the analysis.


The Biggest Technology Trends In Wine And Winemaking

#artificialintelligence

It is not often that I am able to combine two of my life's passions: future tech and wine. When we think about the wine business, the images that come to mind might be more of vineyards stretching across the French countryside than of robots and digital transformation. But the fact is that the industry has always been driven by science, technology and innovation. Today, things are no different. The latest wave of technology-driven change is focused on artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things, augmented reality and blockchain.


Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, for when flagship isn't flagship enough

#artificialintelligence

It's called the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, which just rolls off the tongue, and Qualcomm says it'll offer 10 percent faster CPU performance, 10 percent faster GPU clocks, and -- get this -- use 15 percent less power for "nearly 1 hour" of extra gameplay or, say, 50 minutes of social media browsing. Technically, Qualcomm says it's achieved "up to 30 percent" better power efficiency from both the CPU and GPU, and 20 percent better AI performance per watt, but that doesn't necessarily all transfer into more battery life -- some of it's about performance, too. Qualcomm is particularly touting better sustained performance from the new chip too -- theoretically maintaining its clockspeed for longer as it heats up while gaming or tapping into 5G. Of course, that all depends on how phone manufacturers decide to cool the chip. The company's not breaking down where the extra performance and efficiencies are coming from, but you can see some of the chip's other features in the slide above, even though many of them (like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 10Gbps of theoretical 5G, and 8K HDR video capture) haven't changed from the original Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Qualcomm says it'll live alongside that older chip, so you can probably expect a price premium. Qualcomm's also announcing a new Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 today, suggesting to journalists that it's aimed at gamers with a 20 percent graphics performance boost over the prior gen and the trickle-down of features like its "Adreno Frame Motion Engine" to make games see smoother by interpolating frames.


Why Artificial Intelligence Creates an Unprecedented Era of Opportunity in the Near Future

#artificialintelligence

Take the challenge of demographic shifts. A.I., in conjunction with hybrid cloud, is helping many companies automate certain routine business activities, and move people to higher-value work. In manufacturing, a factory floor operator can now rely on A.I. to detect defects that are invisible to the human eye. In health care, A.I.-enabled virtual agents can handle millions of calls at once. In the energy sector, autonomous robots can use cloud and A.I. to analyze data at the edge to improve equipment uptime and prevent power outages.
