Building AI Cameras with Intel Movidius VPUs

Tuesday, May 21, 1:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Summit Track: 
Enabling Technologies
Exhibit Hall ET 1

The availability of silicon platforms today with sufficient performance and compute efficiency to run AI inference algorithms has given rise to many interesting edge products: from smart home security cameras to personal assistants to cameras for industrial automation and visual retail cameras for cashier-less stores. At Intel we support a vibrant ecosystem of device makers, ODMs, integrators and end users. We are ushering in a new era of AI cameras to truly assist people in what we do at home and at work every day. In this presentation, I will showcase our Intel® Movidius™ VPU (Vision Processor Unit) and its capabilities. I will share details of new ways to build AI cameras with VPUs, and provide an overview of the software development environment, including the Intel distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit that enables AI application deployment. With the OpenVINO™ toolkit, users can prototype and deploy their own deep neural network algorithms using the Movidius VPU.
