When Intel’s Movidius team released the Myriad 2 visual processing unit (VPU) it was a marvel of technology and design. The tiny chip contained AI accelerators and a performance-to-power ratio that placed it, arguably, without peer. A developer looking to give the power of sight to a device couldn’t ask for much more than the Myriad 2. Show More Summary
Movidius' new Myriad X packs a specialized deep neural network engine, more of the company's vision processing SHAVE CPU cores, and expanded interconnect support, all while sticking to the Myriad 2's power consumption. The post The Movidius Myriad X VPU Packs a Custom Neural Compute Engine appeared first on ExtremeTech.
Movidius, now an Intel company, announced the Myriad X VPU, which the company claims is the world's first Vision Processing Unit (VPU) with a dedicated Neural Compute Engine.
Today, Intel subsidiary Movidius is announcing the Movidius Myriad X vision processing unit (VPU), a low-power system-on-chip (SoC) intended for deep learning and AI acceleration in vision-based devices such as drones, smart cameras, and VR/AR headsets. Show More Summary
Movidius announced that its second generation vision processor, Myriad 2, will soon be used in Hikvision's smart surveillance cameras to enable car model classification, intruder detection, suspicious baggage alert, and seat-belt detection.
Movidius' Myriad 2 VPU already powers Microsoft's HoloLens and Google's Project Tango. The acquisition would merge the VPU with Intel's RealSense technology.
Movidius announced that it has entered a partnership with Lenovo that will grant the tech company access to Movidius’s Myriad 2 vision processing units (VPU) and computer vision algorithms for use in “various virtual reality project...
Movidius' Myriad 2 vision processing chip (Photo: Movidius) The branch of artificial intelligence called deep learning has given us new wonders such as self-driving cars and instant language translation on our phones. Now it’s about to injects smarts into every other object imaginable. That’s because makers of silicon processors from giants such [...]
Movidius has incorporated their Myriad 2 processor into a new USB device called the Fathom Neural Compute Stick. You can plug the Fathom into any USB-capable device and that device can begin to react cognitively and make its own decisions based on its programming. The key point is it can do this all natively—right on the stick. No call to the cloud is necessary. Read More
The Boson, FLIR System’s advanced thermal imaging camera core, will integrate the Myriad 2 VPU thanks to a collaboration with Movidius.
The newly announced Movidius Myriad 2 VPU that powers the DJI Phantom 4 drone might just be a big deal for smartphones too.
Hoping to take machine learning on the go, Google will be working with Myriad VPUs from Movidius to incorporate a wide range of AI-based applications into mobile devices.
Google has signed a deal with Movidius to include its Myriad 2 MA2450 processor in future devices. The search giant first worked with Movidius back in 2014 for its Project Tango devices, and it's now licensing the company's latest tech to "accelerate the adoption of deep learning within mobile devices."

Emerging tech such as VR, AR, drones, smart robots and more require vision processing, and Movidius aims to get in on the ground floor.
Already the heart of Google's Project Tango, Movidius is upping the stakes with a 20x more efficient chip -- the Myriad 2.
Despite the promise of Google's Movidius-equipped Project Tango, there are still no depth-sensing, SLR-stomping smartphones on the market. But Movidius thinks that could change soon, thanks to its brand new chip: the Myriad 2 vision processor unit...
When Google first announced its Project Tango initiative for 3D-sensing smartphones and tablets, one of the key components was Movidius’ Myriad 1 vision processing chip. Building on its accomplishments, Movidius today announced a next-generation Myriad 2 chip that offers as much as a 20x boost in efficiency over its predecessor. Show More Summary
As you may have seen Google is working on a cool project called Tango which allows smartphones and tablets (and possibly Google Glass down the road) to not only see, but understand your environment. This is made possible by computer vision techniques not unlike what is used in Kinect 2 today. Show More Summary
At the core of Google’s freshly announced experimental Project Tango smartphone platform is a vision processor called the Myriad 1, manufactured by chip startup Movidius and its CEO Remi El-Ouazzane. The chip is being used by Google’s...Show More Summary
