Movidius Unveils Artificial Intelligence on a Stick

With it, pretty much any device with a USB port will be able to use advanced neural networks. Hot on the heels of a new artificial intelligence-capable thermal imaging camera, chip maker Movidius has yet another AI implementation up its sleeve: a USB stick that can allow pretty much any Linux computer to handle advanced neural networks, one of the building blocks of AI. The San Mateo, Calif.-based company announced the device, called the Fathom Neural Compute Stick, today along with its Fathom deep-learning software framework. Together, the two products will enable device manufacturers to move AI processing from the cloud to native deployment in end-user devices. Such a step is critical if AI is to become as ubiquitous as its advocates claim it can be. While massive data centers with…
