As smartphones become more powerful, they’ll be able to offer better artificial intelligence performance for gaming and other applications.
Qualcomm wants to make sure that it stays at the bleeding edge of AI mobile technology, so the chipmaker is working with Tencent and Vivo on a new initiative called Project Imagination.
The companies announced their joint partnership earlier today during Qualcomm AI Day in Shenzhen, China.
According to a press release, Project Imagination is meant to “to bring smarter, more efficient, and more immersive experiences to consumers” through AI.
The first step involves Vivo’s new iQOO line of hardcore smartphones for gamers.
They use Qualcomm’s powerful Snapdragon 855 chipset, which includes the company’s fourth-generation AI engine.
