Intel Launches Movidius Neural Compute Stick

Today, Intel launched the Movidius Neural Compute Stick, the world’s first USB-based deep learning inference kit and self-contained artificial intelligence accelerator that delivers dedicated deep neural network processing capabilities to a wide range of host devices at the edge. Designed for product developers, researchers and makers, the Movidius Neural Compute Stick aims to reduce barriers to developing, tuning and deploying AI applications by delivering dedicated high-performance deep-neural network processing in a small form factor.

Fathom Neural Compute Stick Enables Mobile Devices to React Cognitively

Intel-owned Movidius has introduced a fascinating new device called the Fathom Neural Compute Stick, a modular deep learning accelerator in the form of a standard USB stick. “The Fathom Neural Compute Stick is the first of its kind: A powerful, yet surprisingly efficient Deep Learning processor embedded into a standard USB stick. The Fathom Neural Compute Stick acts as a discrete neural compute accelerator, allowing devices with a USB port run neural networks at high speed, while sipping under a single Watt of power.”

Intel Acquires Movidius to Bolster AI

Today Movidius announced that the company is being acquired by Intel. As a deep learning startup, Movidius’s mission is to give the power of sight to machines.
