Google is about to make image and audio recognition truly awesome

Google has already made significant strides in bringing the benefits of avanced deep learning and image recognition algorithms to average consumers with services such as Now and Photos. But when it comes to pulling off its software engineering mojo, so far, big G had only been relying on the exponential increases in computing power achieved by the top chipmakers in the industry.For the time being, this has proven itself enough in both theory and practice, but there’s nothing like a dedicated chip designed from the ground-up to facilitate a very specific task! Google knows engineering like we know our five fingers, so its latest move seems all sorts of appropriate. American firm Movidius, a “leader in low-power machine vision for connected devices” announced a working partnership with Google. As part…
