Google partners with Movidius


A new partnership between Google and chip maker Movidius could change the way your phone looks at the world.Looking forward the partnership is likely to bring machine learning to future mobile devices.

According to Movidius, Google will be licensing Movidius’ latest flagship chip, the MA2450, along with the accompanying software stack.

The chip has 12 cores, and is able to perform low power, advanced computer vision processing. One possible use for this could be Google’s Project Tango. Google is partnering with Lenovo on a smartphone that would be able to sense where it is, how it’s positioned, and what’s around it, which opens the door for many new software opportunities.

Movidius says it specializes in “low-power machine vision for connected devices” which makes us believe it’s be suited for phones or other mobile devices instead of Google’s driverless cars.

In essence, technology like facial and spatial recognition and being able to interpret and learn from this data is the type of thing Google would love to do with its forthcoming devices.

During a demonstration at CES, Google’s Johnny Lee showed off how you could measure a room using a prototype Project Tango tablet and then shop at Lowes for furniture that would fit.
