Intel buys Movidius to ramp computer vision
Leading chip company Intel Corp. has announced that it plans to buy fabless startup Movidius Inc. (San Mateo, Calif.) and use that company's visual processor technology alongside its own RealSense depth-sensing camera for computer vision applications.
Inc. (see Intel to Acquire Deep Learning Nervana ) and cognitive computing software company Saffron Technology Inc.

It was not made clear whether Movidius would continue to operate as a subsidiary company or would be integrated into Intel's business structure. Saffron continues to operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary company at present.

"With Movidius, Intel gains low-power, high-performance SoC platforms for accelerating computer vision applications," said Walden. He added: "Computer vision will trigger a Cambrian explosion of compute, with Intel at the forefront of this new wave of computing, enabled by RealSense in conjunction with Movidius and our full suite of perceptual computing technologies."
