Google’s Deep Learning Comes to Movidius

MADISON, Wis.—Movidius, an ultra-low-power computer vision-processor startup best known for its partnership with Google on Project Tango, has extended its relationship with Google. This time, the collaboration is focused on neural network technology, with plans to accelerate the adoption of deep learning in mobile devices. In an interview with EE Times, Remi El-Ouazzane, CEO, Movidius, called the agreement “a new chapter” in the partnership. In Project Tango, Google used a Movidius chip in a platform that uses computer vision for positioning and motion tracking. The project’s mission was to allow app developers to create user experience that works on indoor navigation, 3D mapping, physical space measurement, augmented reality and recognition of known environments. The new agreement with Google is all about machine learning. It’s intended to bring super intelligent models—extracted…
