General Vision is pleased to announce that it has signed a distribution and collaboration agreement with Maker Collider, the leading maker to startup platform in China to bring to the Chinese makers a suite of libraries and tools unleashing the neurons of the Intel Curie module on the Arduino/Genuino 101 platform for learning and recognition.

The suite is presently composed of two Arduino libraries offering different level of control of the neurons (CurieNeurons and CurieNeuronsPro) and the Curie Knowledge Builder application providing an easy-to-use interface to teach the neurons by examples and validate their knowledge on new examples.

The libraries open up the leading edge neuromorphic technology of the 128 neurons inside the Curie modules which are based on the NeuroMem technology pioneered by General Vision. These tools will bring the capacity of developing smart wearables and IoT with the powerful patterns learning and recognition to the makers and hardware startups.

“Artificial Intelligence should be an innovation tool in everyone’s hands, you cannot imagine this before the debut of Curie and CurieNeuron, we will work with Intel and General Vision to make it happen, to let people design their intelligent devices using not coding but training.” says Honggang Li co-founder and CEO of Maker Collider.

“General Vision is delighted to team with Maker Collider and Intel to allow the development knowledge in new domains via training instead of programming.

Artificial intelligence should be the tool for every maker. With CurieNeurons, anyone can train everyday objects to perform interesting tasks such as teaching the children how to brush efficiently their young teeth, monitoring health of dogs or favorite animals and much more to come.

As Intel CEO said at CES2016, now because of Curie ‘anyone can develop an application in a few minutes’.” says Guy Paillet, Founder of General Vision.
