Intel's Focus On AI
Intel has been sharpening its focus on artificial intelligence as the company looks to grow in new areas of technology beyond the PC market.
The Santa Clara, Calif.-based company Monday inveiled its next-generation "vision processing unit," embedded technology with processing capabilities for edge devices such as virtual reality headsets, smart cameras, wearables and robots. Intel's chip, which has a Neural Compute Engine for deep learning at the edge, comes almost a year after the company in September 2016 acquired Movidius, which is now a subsidiary of the company.
CRN talked to Gary Brown, vice president of marketing at Movidius, about Intel's overall artificial intelligence strategy.
