The Intel Neural Compute Stick 2 boasts Intel Movidius X VPU. You’ll benefit from OpenVINO compatibility, and incredible ease of use. The artificial intelligence (AI) USB stick features improved AI algorithm creation. Featuring plug-and-play operation, simply plug in the Intel Neural Compute Stick 2 and spin up AI applications in a matter of minutes. The NCS 2 works with a USB 3.0 port. There’s no external power supply required.
Intended for edge and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, the Inten Neural Compute Stick 2 offers the ability to test and prototype neural networks. What’s more, the tiny device, resembling a mere flash drive, the NCS 2 eschews the need for cloud connectivity or network. Instead, it runs straight from the device itself.
Onboard, you’ll find 16 shave cores in the Intel Movidius X VPU with as high as eight times as much power as its predecessor. OpenVINO software adds the ability to run on a multitude of Intel hardware options. With AI on the rise in a bevy of spaces, from gaming to smart home tech, there’s loads of opportunity for the Inten Neural Compute Stick 2 to aid developers. Moreover, the Intel NCS 2 benefits devs by streamlining the process of using deep neural networks, and makes it increasingly accessible.
