Neural network on a stick
Californian firm Movidius has released a neural computing USB stick.
The firm's Myriad chip powers the likes of Google's Project Tango development kit and version two helps DJI’s flagship Phantom 4 drones helping it to better avoid obstacles.
Moviduis also released the Fathom deep learning software framework which complements the neural network accelerator USB stick.
The Fathom Neural Compute USB stick aims is an early stage bid to bring machine learning capabilities out of the cloud and to native devices, which could among other feats help drones better identify and land on stable surfaces.
It will behave as a neural network profiling and evaluation tool such that organisations can produce prototype faster and get artificial intelligence to market more quickly, the firm says. ®
