The Fathom USB stick offers plug-and-play AI for under 0

Adding neural deep learning to a system doesn’t have to be a complicated endeavor. AI firm Movidius has just announced a USB stick that can be plugged into existing systems to add deep learning functionality that can allow them to understand the world around them or recognize objects. It’s called Fathom, and it’ll cost less than $100. At the heart of Fathom is the Myriad 2 visual processing unit. This hardware is designed from the ground up to run a miniature version of a neural network. DJI uses this same chip in its drone aircraft to help them avoid obstacles in flight. The Fathom USB stick is capable of 150 gigaFLOPS (150 billion floating-operations per second). That’s enough to get some real work done. After plugging Fathom into a USB 3.0…
