The partnership with Baidu, the Beijing-based search engine giant that develops the Chinese version of Google, will give OEMs capabilities “to deliver AI voice solutions on their devices with improved user experience and faster time-to-market,” Qualcomm explained.

Launched in 2015, DuerOS is a conversational AI system found in mobile phones, TV set-top boxes, and smart speakers. The focus will be optimizing DuerOS technologies for Qualcomm’s Aqstic hardware and software, which provide the system with always-on, low power, voice activation and echo cancellation and noise suppression.

On Wednesday, Qualcomm announced its Snapdragon 845 platform that will be found in 2018 flagship smartphones. Qualcomm said Snapdragon 845 will be part of the DuerOS optimization, and for the coming year, the center point. Specifics about smartphones that will run the new chipset haven’t been shared, but have been promised for early 2018.
