The Movidius acquisition is only the latest move by the chip maker to broaden its capabilities in AI, computer vision and cognitive computing.
Founded almost a decade ago by Trinity graduates Sean Mitchell and David Moloney, Movidius develops super light-weight chips with vision processors or cameras attached so that they can understand their surroundings and adapt. Myriad 2 uses low power (one watt) to offload all "vision-related" task from a device's GPU's and CPU, thus freeing up the two units for other tasks. Google worked with Qualcomm to make ready the consumer versions of Tango technology for phones and tablets, and it seemed that Movidius disappeared from the equation.
Although the deal has not yet been finalized, the fact that both Intel and Movidius are announcing the acquisition suggests that it is nearly certain to go through.
Intel will acquire computer vision startup Movidius, as part of its RealSens vision and strategy.

This year has seen the chipmaker showcase Project Alloy, a reference platform for a wireless VR headset that packs all the sensors and chips needed to power it within the headset, rather than relying on external sensors or a PC to provide the processing grunt. According to Intel, the company plans to use Movidius' low-power, high-performance SoC platforms for accelerating computer vision platforms. Josh Walden, Senior Vice President and General Manager of New Technology Group at Intel, said that the technology would be deployed in augmented, virtual and merged reality, autonomous driving, robotics and drones.
