Movidius launches a $79 deep-learning USB stick

Bringing AI to hardware is as easy as plugging in Movidius's new $79 USB device

  • and Intel have put deep-learning on a stick with a tiny $79 USB device that makes bringing AI to hardware a snap.
  • In April of last year, Movidius showed off the first iteration of this device, which they then called the Fathom Neural Compute Stick.
  • The Movidius Neural Computer Stick tosses one of these VPUs into a USB 3.0 stick giving product developers and researchers the ability to enable prototyping, validation and deployment of inference applications offline, bringing about a number of latency and power consumption improvements.
  • It supports

    When connected to constrained host computing devices like Raspberry Pi, the compute stick offers pull-and-play intelligence.

  • Getting acquired has offered Movidius some more flexibility to add features like the ability to plug in several of these sticks to add more deep-learning power.
