Visual Cortex in USB Form Factor

Housed in a USB key device, the Fathom contains an embedded neural network that can accelerate deep learning with low power requirements. It uses the dedicated Myriad 2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU) chip to provide visual cortex functions in stand alone environments without requiring cloud connectivity. Movidius Announces Deep Learning Accelerator and Fathom Software Framework […]

AI Chess Machine Learns by Itself

Deep learning researchers are combining neural networks with the computing power of GPUs to reduce the training time required to produce good results. But this just accelerates the speed of “brute force” learning that tries everything and tests for success or failure. Human intelligence uses filters to eliminate choices that make no sense. Narrowing the […]
