Movidius Puts Neural Network on a USB Stick

Movidius Puts Neural Network on a USB Stick

Neural networks are artificial intelligence systems that excel at interpreting images. This makes them promising for helping drones and robots navigate, or for analyzing surveillance footage. But they are typically power hungry, which has limited their use so far. Vision processor company Movidius of San Mateo, Calif., hopes to change that with a low-power chip designed to run neural networks. The neural net accelerator, called Fathom, comes on a USB stick, uses only 1 watt of power, and can run most visual neural nets. Making a low-power system that can run computationally intensive neural networks is a challenge. Neural networks make sense of images in a way that’s analogous to the human brain. They’re built during a training period that uses millions of label ed images to train an algorithm to recognize human faces, dogs, or trees, for example. These systems analyze ima...
