Movidius, Google team up to bring deep learning to mobiles

Mobile processor technology provider Movidius has announced an agreement with Google to work together on the adoption of deep learning within mobile devices. As part of the deal, Google will use Movidius processors alongside the entire Movidius software development environment. In turn, Google will contribute to Movidius’ neural network technology roadmap. Google has already used Movidius’ Myriad 1 visual-processing unit (VPU) chip to assist 3D-mapping capabilities in Project Tango, but the new agreement enables the Android maker to deploy its advanced neural computation engine on Movidius’ ultra-low-power platform, introducing a new way for machine intelligence to run locally on devices. Google will begin licensing the Myriad 2 family of VPU processors from Movidius, including the MA2150 and the MA2450 chips and accompanying SDKs. In a statement Movidius said its tiny…
