Google taps chipmaker Movidius to add machine learning to phones

Share This article A big reason the electronic devices around us are getting smarter, and hopefully more useful, is machine learning. By building complex models of data, then training those models, tasks as diverse as facial recognition, language translation, and autonomous driving can be accomplished. In addition to the need for huge amounts of compute power to train those systems, they all tend to be both very power and processor intensive to run. That has kept most of them tethered to plug-in devices — like the Kinect — or requiring large batteries, like those found in a car. For example, Nvidia’s Drive PX 2 trunk-mountable car computer will require liquid cooling. For mobile devices that has meant a constant connection to the cloud, with raw data sent up, analyzed at the…
