Qualcomm’s Zeroth processors can mimic human-like perception and brain-like computing

Qualcomm’s Research and Development team has spent the last few years working on a new computer architecture that mimics the human brain and nervous system, and it’s called Qualcomm Zeroth processing.

Zeroth-enable devices will be able to have embedded cognition and brain-inspired computing. Qualcomm said it wants Zeroth to not only “mimic human-like perception” but also have the ability to “learn how biological brains do.”

This feat is made possible due to Qualcomm’s suite of software tools that allow devices to learn and get feedback from their environment. It’s not just pre-programmed behaviors and lots of coding.

Check out the video below, in which Qualcomm put a Qualcomm Zeroth processor in a robot and placed it in an environment with colored boxes. The robot was naturally able to adjust its behavior in response to being told “good” or “bad.”

Qualcomm said it’s ready to work with other companies who want to develop applications to run Zeroth. It even mentioned focusing on building neural networks that’ll go into mobile devices and enable them to learn from users.
