Movidius, Google Team Up To Leverage Deep Learning On Mobile Devices

Call it an evolution of spatial computing and positional tracking, sort of a next generation of what Google’s Project Tango hopes to accomplish. Or maybe it’s the next step in the evolution of Deep Learning. Really, it seems to be both, but in any case, Movidius and Google are teaming up to get the benefits of Deep Learning onto mobile devices.What Movidius brings to the table is efficient visual processing with the MA2450, its flagship Myriad 2 VPU. Google is licensing both the hardware and software. Using models borne of Google’s Deep Learning databases, the Myriad 2 chip will ostensibly be able to leverage the knowledge Deep Learning provides on-device, with no Internet connection. This Goes On What Now? Details on exactly what devices will use this technology is unclear;…
