Movidius, Hikvision partner to make smarter security cameras


Chipmaker Movidius, recently acquired[1] by Intel, is partnering with the Chinese video IoT firm Hikvision to build a lineup of smarter security cameras, the companies announced[2] Monday. Using the Movidius Myriad 2 Vision Processing Unit, the cameras will be able to run deep neural networks to perform high-accuracy video analytics on the cameras themselves. Such devices have typically relied on cloud computing power to run deep neural networks, but chipmakers and manufacturers expect to see an increasing amount of data processing happening on edge devices.

Deep neural networks should enable a security system to detect visual anamolies like the arrival of suspicious packages or distracted drivers. “Advances in artificial intelligence are revolutionizing the way we think about personal and public security,” Movidius CEO Remi El-Ouazzane said in a statement. “The ability to automatically process video in real-time to detect anomalies will have a large impact on the way cities infrastructure are being used. We’re delighted to partner with Hikvision to deploy smarter camera networks and contribute to creating safer communities, better transit hubs and more efficient business operations.”

Intel announced just last month that it was acquiring Movidius, as it builds up its IoT unit. “We see massive potential for Movidius to accelerate our initiatives in new and emerging technologies,” Josh Walden, senior vice president and general manager of Intel’s New Technology Group, said at the time.

Back in August, Intel laid out its comprehensive 5G, IoT strategy[3] at the Intel Developer Forum.

The company demonstrated its commitment to powering edge devices with a demonstration of a smart streetlight, powered by Intel Atom processors.
