Android P feature spotlight: Google improves neural network API for machine learning and AI developers
Last year, Google introduced a new neural networks API in Android 8.1 Oreo that provided developers with hardware-backed tools for machine learning. Now, with Android P, Google is expanding the API to support nine new operations. Pixel 2 devices will also have support for Qualcomm’s Hexagon HVX driver, giving developers further improvements in performance on those devices.
At the time, Google’s neural network API supported on-device model creation, compilation, and execution, meaning you could not only build a model as required on the device, but you could also run it.
