Intel debuts AI-powered camera system for robots and AR applications   By Maria Deutscher in SiliconAngle

Intel Corp. today debuted a camera system for robots, drones and augmented reality applications that uses a built-in deep learning chip to process visual information.

The new RealSense Tracking Camera T265 (pictured) sports two wide-angle fisheye lenses that can each capture footage in a more than 160-degree field of view. They’re powered by a Movidius Myriad 2 visual processing unit specifically optimized for running deep learning algorithms.

The chip, which is based on technology that Intel obtained through a 2016 acquisition, can be found in millions of connected devices worldwide. It sports 12 processing cores that provide more than 100 gigaflops of performance. One gigaflop equals a billion floating-point operations per second, a standard unit of computing power.  ... '
