What is the Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick (NCS)?
Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick is a tiny fan-less deep learning hardware device that you can use to learn, prototype, and develop AI programming at the edge.
NCS is powered by the same low-power high performance Movidius™ Vision Processing Unit (VPU) that can be found in millions of smart security cameras, intelligent and autonomous drones, industrial machine vision equipment, etc.
What can you do with the NCS?
The Movidius™ Neural Compute Stick enables rapid prototyping, validation and deployment of Deep Neural Network (DNN) inference applications running at the network edge. The NCS architecture includes an ultra-low power Vision Processing Unit (VPU), so it enables entirely new AI applications that aren't reliant on a connection to the cloud.
The NCS combined with Movidius™ Neural Compute SDK allows deep learning developers to profile, tune and deploy Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) on low-power applications that require real-time inferencing.
