In an effort to help advance computer vision on mobile devices, Qualcomm has released the first mobile-optimized CV library, aptly named FastCV. While this news may not be groundbreaking for end-users, it's a pretty big deal for developers, as this library can be used in mobile development to help improve things like face detection and recognition, text tracking and recognition, gesture recognition, as well as open a whole new world for augmented reality applications.

The initial release of FastCV supports Android development, with "expanded platform support" coming soon. So, if you're a dev looking to incorporate some CV into your next app, hit this link to download.
