Meet Fathom, a compute stick to bring neural networks on the go!

It could be the key to truly bring machine learning to the mainstream. Compute sticks aren’t new, but a compute stick that brings neural networks to other devices, is. Movidius, a firm specialising in embedded machine vision, has today announced the Fathom Neural Compute Stick. Movidius claims that it’s the world’s first embedded neural network accelerator. Fathom is a device that looks very similar to the Intel Compute Stick, and you may even be forgiven for thinking it does the same. Actually, it’s meant to do so, but only for devices that need to add machine learning, or neural networks. To simplify, the Fathom is meant to make drones, cameras etc. smarter. The Stick has a Myriad 2 chip, from Movidius, inside. Plugging it into a drone, or a Go…
