Movidius Neural Compute Stick

The Neural Network Compute Stick from Movidius™ allows Deep Neural Network development without the need for expensive, power-hungry supercomputer hardware. Simply prototype and tune the Deep Neural Network with the 100Gflops of computing power provided by the Movidius stick. A Cloud connection is not required. The USB stick form-factor makes for easy connection to a host PC while the onboard Myriad-2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU) delivers the necessary computational performance. The Myriad-2 achieves high-efficiency parallel processing courtesy of its twelve Very Long Instruction Word (VLIW) processors. The decision on parallel scheduling is carried out at program compile time, relieving the processors of this chore upon run-time.

What is the Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick?

The Intel Movidiu Neural Compute Stick (NCS) is a tiny fanless deep learning device that you can use to learn AI programming at the edge. NCS is powered by the same low power high performance Intel Movidius Vision Processing Unit (VPU) that can be found in millions of smart security cameras, gesture controlled drones, industrial machine vision equipment, and more.

Introducing Movidius Neural Compute Stick

What can you do with the NCS?

The Intel Movidius Neural Compute Stick enables rapid prototyping, validation and deployment of Deep Neural Network (DNN) inference applications at the edge. Its low-power VPU architecture enables an entirely new segment of AI applications that are not reliant on a connection to the cloud.

The NCS combined with Intel Movidius Neural Compute SDK allows deep learning developers to profile, tune, and deploy Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) on low-power applications requiring real-time inferencing.
