Image-sensor maker Himax, processor core vendor CEVA, and algorithm provider emza Visual Sense have partnered to develop a low-power "always on" vision sensor module with integrated visual analytics. The three companies offered a conceptual demonstration of the product, dubbed the
Computer vision promises to be the key to the next set of "killer apps"—computer vision-enabled apps that will leverage artificial intelligence to help keep us safer and healthier. But computer vision algorithms are compute- and power-intensive, and need to process large amounts of

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, I walked many miles and saw countless demos. Several of these demos were memorable, but one in particular really got my mental gears turning: Microsoft’s HoloLens. HoloLens, of course, is Microsoft’s “mixed reality”

Earlier this week, Google announced the spin-off of its self-driving car project into a stand-alone business. Will Google become a major player in the automotive industry? Today, that idea seems far-fetched. On the other hand, 15 years ago Apple was a personal computer company, and few would have

Look back over the history of processors, and you'll see many examples of tasks initially restricted to running on high-end processors that, once they became popular and standardized, eventually attracted specialized co-processor or processor support ( Figure 1 ). Consider, for example, video

Processor vendors and system designers share a common concern: how to make sure their products meet customer needs. For processor vendors, a key challenge is to design architectures with enough performance to meet the demands of current and anticipated applications while staying within acceptable

For humans, it goes without saying that vision is extremely valuable. When you stop to think about it, it’s remarkable what a diverse set of capabilities is enabled by human vision – from reading facial expressions, to navigating complex three-dimensional spaces (whether by foot,
Hard on the heels of the public release of CEVA's second-generation convolutional neural network toolset, CDNN2 , the company is putting the final touches on its fifth-generation processor core, the CEVA-XM6 , designed to run software generated by that toolset. Liran Bar, the company's

Based on the pace of investment and acquisitions, and the level of buzz (some would say "hype") surrounding augmented reality and virtual reality, it is obvious that these technologies are hot. With good reason, I think. Augmented and virtual reality have long held enormous

We're hearing more and more about the effectiveness of deep learning for a growing range of applications. With the surge in the volume of data available for training, and reduction in the cost of computing, technologists have turned to deep neural networks for solutions to compute-intensive
