Performance testing the Movidius Neural Compute Stick

The Movidius Neural Compute Stick is great for visual recognition projects with low power consumption and small form factor requirements. A basic introduction is covered in the previous installment, and it is time for a little more field tests on performance.

The first test is calculator, one is Texas Instruments TI84 Plus Pocket SE and the other a Casio fx-4500PA. Both are recognized as hand-held computer with fairly high confidence.movtest1movtest2

Second test is a luxury watch photo, recognized as an analog clock.movtest3

The final test is a feather. At some point the stick returned a 100% confidence. The result is correct.movtest4

This neural computing module did a good job with amazing results as a development kit which is also great for hobby projects. As the technology on hardware AI acceleration matures, we may one day see its integration with CPU to make it ubiquitous product available on the market.
