An official Intel AI Vision Accelerator: UP Squared AI Vision Development Kit

We are so proud to announce the collaboration with Intel on UP Squared AI Vision Development Kit as an official AI Vision Accelerator powered by OpenVINO™ toolkit .
Ready to start you vision project?  The kit contains a UP Squared board powered by IntelAtom® x7-E3950 processor, 4GB memory, 64 GB eMMC with Ubuntu 16.04 image, an AI Core module, a UP HD camera, a fanless chassis and a power supply. Everything is pre-configured to use OpenVINO™ toolkit and it includes a clear tutorial to connect wide range cloud connectors such as Microsoft Azue, Amazon AWS  and Google. The kit is available at UP Shop for pre-order at $399 and will be launched on Kickstarter at promotional price €309 on 22nd of May.
What is OpenVINO™ toolkit  hardness the power of Intel® Processors: CPU, CPU with Integrated Graphics, VPU in one package. It brings great benefits to developers:

  • Accelerate Performance: Access Intel computer vision accelerators. Speed code performance. Supports heterogeneous processing & Asynchronous execution.
  • Integrate Deep learning: Unleash convolutional neural network (CNN) based deep learning inference across using a common API & 10 trained models
  • speed development: Reduce time using a library of optimized OpenCV* & OpenVX* functions, 15+ samples. Develop once, deploy for current & future Intel-based devices.
  • Innovate & customize: Use the increasing repository of OpenCL™ starting points in OpenCV* to add your own unique code.
