Microchip manufacturing giant Qualcomm and Foxconn announce their new high-performance artificial intelligence edge box. The companies announce the design and launch of Gloria Edge Box through a press release.
The Edge Box is powered by Qualcomm Cloud artificial intelligence 100 accelerator. This high-end technology is capable of performing more than seventy trillion artificial intelligence-related operations per second.
Gloria Edge Box uses Snapdragon 865 mobile processor to support a maximum of 24 Full HD cameras. This technology can be used for various research purposes like traffic analysis, security, and intelligent retailing solution development.
Senior Vice President and General Manager of Computing and Edge Cloud at Qualcomm, Keith Kressin, said, “We anticipate broad areas of adoption of Foxconn Industrial Internet’s Gloria platform using our leading performance per watt AI solution, the Qualcomm Cloud AI 100. We expect customer adoption of Gloria to include a variety of environments such as retail centers, warehouses, data centers, and factories.”
