It was only recently that smartphones starting carrying co-processors whose sole purpose was to processor sensor data at very low power consumption. Soon, however, smartphones might have yet another dedicated, low power chip that will be focused on helping the smartphone “see”. Google is now trying to build even more intelligent smartphones by introducing machine learning, neural networks, and computer vision into our mobile devices. And to do so, it is teaming up with a familiar partner that knows this only too well, Movidius, who also made the “vision processor” inside the Project Tango smartphone. Google has been toying around with computer vision and machine learning for quite some time now, with the Project Tango devices, first a tablet and now a couple of smartphones, being the tangible fruits of…
