Google And Movidius Partner To Propel Computer Vision In Next-Generation Devices

Announced today, Google will begin licensing the Myriad 2 family of VPU chips from Movidius. The Myriad 2 family includes both the MA2150 and the MA2450 chips and accompanying SDKs.This tiny chip, complete with 12 cores, specializes in enabling low power, advanced computer vision processing which will no doubt be a valuable component to “mobilizing” Google’s growing list of products that utilize machine learning. Machine learning, while complex, is easy to conceptualize—computers and programs that learn and improve over time. They may create their own algorithms to describe their learning, rather than require humans to program them based on known rules. But what is computer vision? Simply put, it’s the ability for computing devices to be able to view, interpret and understand images both symbolically and in context. For example, a…
