Google and Movidius Collaborating to Bring Deep Learning to Mobile Devices

by Angela Guess George Leopold reports for Datanami, “Google and Movidius, a specialist in low-power machine vision chips, said this week they would collaborate to bring deep learning technology to mobile devices. Google said Wednesday (Jan. 27) it would integrate Movidius processors with the San Mateo, Calif., company’s software development tools. The search giant also said it would contribute to the Movidius neural network technology roadmap. The partners said the agreement would allow Google to deploy its neural computation engine on the Movidius low-power platform as a way of ‘introducing a new way for machine intelligence to run locally on devices.’ Leveraging local computing would allow data to remain on a device and function without Internet access and with fewer latency issues. That capability promises to generate future devices with…
