3D perception: Cutting-edge AI research to understand the 3D world

3D perception is crucial for understanding the real world. It offers many benefits and new capabilities over 2D across diverse applications, from XR and autonomous driving to IOT, camera, and mobile. 3D perception with machine learning is creating the new state of the art (SOTA) in areas, such as depth estimation, object detection, and neural scene representation. Making these SOTA neural networks feasible for real-world deployment on mobile devices constrained by power, thermal, and performance has been a challenge. Qualcomm AI Research has developed not only novel AI techniques for 3D perception but also full-stack AI optimizations to enable real-world deployments and energy-efficient solutions. This webinar will explore the latest research that is enabling efficient 3D perception while maintaining neural network model accuracy. You’ll learn about:
  • The advantages of 3D perception over 2D and the need for 3D perception across applications
  • Advancements in 3D perception research by Qualcomm AI Research
  • Our future 3D perception research directions
