Microsoft Announces Next Version Of HoloLens Will Be Equipped With A.I.
On Sunday, Microsoft announced that the next version of its HoloLens will be equipped with a new coprocessor that may be better at navigating reality than the current version of the mixed-reality headset. At this year’s annual CVPR computer vision event, Harry Shum, the executive vice president of the Artificial Intelligence and Research Group, revealed that the second version of HoloLens’ custom multiprocessor — called a “holographic processing unit,” or HPU — will incorporate artificial intelligence technology. According to Shum, the new HPU will enable HoloLens to do the kind of deep learning processing that typically is done only in the cloud. Marc Pollefeys, director of science at HoloLens, said, “Mixed reality and artificial intelligence represent the future of computing, and we’re excited to be advancing this frontier.”
