Last month, Intel introduced Movidius Neural Computer Stick to accelerate applications such as object recognition, and do so offline, i.e. without the cloud, and at low power. While there was not that much information available at the time, the minimal requirements for the host machine were that it had to be a x86_64 computer running Ubuntu 16.04, and come with at least 1GB RAM, and 4GB storage.
Since all computing is supposed to happen in the stick, I’d assume this should work on other ARM development board with Debian and Gstreamer support. I understand you’ll need an Ubuntu PC to compile neural networks using the toolkit, but you can run inferencing on lower end ARM hardware.
