The Next HoloLens Will Include A Deep Learning Accelerator

Microsoft announced today that its second-gen HoloLens' Holographic Processing Unit (HPU) will contain a deep learning accelerator.

What we do know so far about the second-gen HPU is that it will incorporate an accelerator for deep neural networks (DNNs). The deep learning accelerator is designed to work offline and use the HoloLens’ battery, which means it should be quite efficient, while still providing significant benefits to Microsoft’s machine learning code.
