Compute Stick For Deep Learning
Intel subsidiary Movidius has launched a new small form factor device, the Movidius Neural Compute Stick, which is designed to make artificial intelligence a plug-and-play application.
The compute stick will help partners double down on deep learning and artificial intelligence as these applications gain traction in the market.
"The Myriad 2 VPU, housed inside the Movidius Neural Compute Stick provides powerful, yet efficient performance – more than 100 gigaflops of performance within a 1W power envelope – to run real-time deep neural networks directly from the device," said Remi El-Ouazzane, vice president and general manager of Movidius, in a statement. "This enables a wide range of AI applications to be deployed offline."
Here are five features of the Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick.
