Stimulating Human like Actions & Thoughts using Mobile Cognitive Computing

Companies like IBM and other semiconductor companies are working on new ways to have a better interaction between humans and computers. More importantly, methods are being devised so that computers can understand human behavior and formulate ‘needs’ out of it. While other companies like Qualcomm are working towards personalizing mobile devices and expanding their horizons in areas of robotics, automobiles, and wearables, and have named this space as “Zeroth Platform”.

Improving Computer “Understanding” Quotient

Smart Devices generally require a camera to collect data from surroundings. This data is sent to the cloud for computing and recognition and is then sent back to the device. This activity involves a lot of latency, moreover, an active internet connection all the time. These make the smart device less interactive with users and diminishes their capability to continually understand users’ interactions.

Many companies are filling this cognitive computing gap with the help of GPUs. Some of these powerful GPUs are a result of NVIDIA and Qualcomm. While there are still certain aspects of cognitive computing requiring much more than a faster GPU, this is a balanced and heterogeneous computing architecture. This platform is the “right engine for right task” and is optimized for mobile environments, called the Zeroth Platform by Qualcomm.

Zeroth Platform and User Cognitive Computing

Qualcomm’s Zeroth platform is greatly benefitted from optimized hardware and software solutions, presenting leading-edge connectivity along with heterogeneous computing technology within highly integrated SoC.

The On-Device intelligence technology of the Zeroth platform provides more natural interactions and intuitive experiences. Companies are also working on maximizing performance and minimizing power consumption of each task which is responsible for an efficient solution.

On-device processing removes the latency created as a result of to and fro of information from the cloud. Also, this leads to better security as the user has his data at hand and is under his control. These reasons result in better responsiveness of a device to the user.

Further, these methods are devised because engineers are aware of the fact that a device works best when data is as close to the user as possible. Cloud solutions will still be needed to enhance intelligence and update capabilities, but the core work has to be done by the device itself.

Differentiating with Mobile

This approach is unique in its own way because, in this approach, already existing resources are utilized to their best levels combined together with new hardware and software. This enhances machines collecting, processing, and resulting capabilities. Zeroth Platform is thus targeted to enrich cognitive computing and minimize power consumption by optimizing the existing capabilities of mobile devices.

Getting closer to mobile devices will allow manufacturers to differentiate around user experience and expose novel market opportunities. Companies’ will continue to work towards inculcating cognitive computing and intelligence in devices that are closer to users. It is an extremely profound idea to tap the idling potential carried by our smartphones and making them our constant companion day by day.
