Every month StreamComputing offers an OpenCL training in Mathematics or Media-operations. Target is OpenCL 1.2. OpenCL 2.0 trainings will start in Q2/Q3, or on request. All trainings will be given by an experienced OpenCL developer/trainer.
The image processing, video and computer vision communities in Israel are world class leaders in the field, with large and dynamic presence in both industry and academia. The IMVC conference is a unique opportunity for companies from diverse industrial fields to meet with research groups of academic institutions heading machine vision research in Israel. The conference serve as a venue for academic researchers, algorithm experts and engineers, product managers, and system managers from companies in various segments of the industry (medical, military, security, etc.) to gain exposure, exchange ideas and foster collaboration. Material regarding the newly formed Israel Chapter will be handed at the conference. The Israel Chapter is a great opportunity to meet and share information regarding Khronos APIs: OpenGL, OpenCL, OpenVX, OpenMax, etc.
Anton Lokhmotov from ARM is starting his new blog series with a subseries on technology that he knows and has come to love best - OpenCL. To simplify the tutorial, Andreas Klöckner's PyOpenCL module is being used.
