Qualcomm buys Dutch research outfit to bolster artificial intelligence expertise

Qualcomm buys Dutch research outfit to bolster artificial intelligence expertise Tribune News Service The Google Pixel smartphone is one of many devices today that offer voice controlled personal assistants, which is an example of artificial intelligence technology. The Google Pixel smartphone is one of many devices today that offer voice controlled personal assistants, which is an example of artificial intelligence technology. (Tribune News Service) Mike Freeman Contact Reporter Qualcomm announced that it has purchased Dutch artificial intelligence research company Scyfer to boost its expertise in machine learning. The price was not disclosed. Scyfer has built artificial intelligence systems for companies in manufacturing, healthcare, finance and other industries. Founded in 2013, Scyfer is a spinoff of the University of Amsterdam. Professor Max Welling co-founded the company and will continue to work both as a professor and an artificial intelligence researcher for Qualcomm. Qualcomm, which made the announcement last week, will keep Scyfer’s operations and researchers in The Netherlands. A company spokesman declined to name how many people work at Scyfer. Two years ago, Qualcomm partnered with the University of Amsterdam on a joint research lab project focused on machine learning techniques for mobile, as well as computer vision that recognizes objects using the smartphone camera. As part of the Scyfer acquisition announcement, Qualcomm laid out its research focus for artificial intelligence and machine learning, which is expected to play a larger role in upcoming generations of gadgets. “We started fundamental research a decade ago, and our current products now support many artificial intelligence use cases from computer vision and natural language processing to malware detection on a variety of devices — such as smartphones and cars — and we are researching broader topics, such as artificial intelligence for wireless connectivity, power management and photography,” said Matt Grob, executive vice president for technology at Qualcomm. An example of artificial intelligence/machine learning that’s used today is the ability to control smartphones and personal assistants such as Amazon Echo via voice commands. Many large companies run their artificial intelligence algorithms in data centers because they often require hefty computing power. This Internet cloud delivers instructions back to smartphones and other devices via wireless networks. Qualcomm’s research is centered on implementing artificial intelligence/machine learning on devices themselves, such as smartphones, cars, drones and robots. Benefits include faster responses with less latency, less bandwidth usage and improved privacy protection. It also allows artificial intelligence functions to operate when devices are outside the range of cellular or Wi-Fi connections. Qualcomm already delivers artificial intelligence features on its latest smartphone chips, including technologies that help smartphone cameras recognize objects and detect surroundings to aid in better photo composition. It also delivers on-device processing to enhance picture quality, among other things. Qualcomm’s shares ended trading Tuesday up 37 cents at $52.35 on the Nasdaq.
