This month Intel has unveiled its new Intel Neural Compute Stick 2 at Intel AI Devcon in Beijing to help provide more information on building smarter artificial intelligent Edge devices. The Intel AI Devcon is the first artificial intelligence developer conference held by Intel and takes place today and tomorrow in Beijing
The Intel Neural Compute Stick 2 (Intel NCS 2) designed to build smarter AI algorithms and for prototyping computer vision at the network edge. “The first-generation Intel Neural Compute Stick sparked an entire community of AI developers into action with a form factor and price that didn’t exist before. We’re excited to see what the community creates next with the strong enhancement to compute power enabled with the new Intel Neural Compute Stick 2.”
Bringing computer vision and AI to Internet of Things (IoT) and edge device prototypes is easy with the enhanced capabilities of the Intel NCS 2 says Intel and is perfect for those working on smart cameras, drones industrial robots for the next smart home device. The Intel NCS 2 is powered by the latest generation of Intel VPU – the Intel Movidius Myriad X VPU. This is the first to feature a neural compute engine – a dedicated hardware neural network inference accelerator delivering additional performance.
