Google Wants Your Smartphone to See People

Nick Statt | January 27, 2016 

Google today announced a partnership with Silicon Valley chip maker Movidius to help bring more powerful image recognition technology directly to smartphones. In current devices, those kinds of capabilities are typically restricted to cloud-based apps, which communicate with servers to tap into advanced artificial intelligence techniques for performing facial recognition and other tasks. The new collaboration, however, will see Google place Movidius' MA2450 chip inside Android handsets to allow them to understand and identify images like faces and street signs in real time, without the need to upload photos and wait for algorithms to do their magic in the cloud.
