Checkout the complete schedule. @Croteam, @DSFishlabs, and @feralgames will be presenting their experience of moving their games to Vulkan.   Read More

Follow-up: Neil Trevett and Tom Olson from Khronos Group Discuss OpenCL and Vulkan Roadmap

• Tags: Vulkan OpenCL

PC Perspective had the opportunity to have a phone interview with Neil Trevett, president of the Khronos Group and chairman of the OpenCL working group, and Tom Olson, chairman of the Vulkan working group. While OpenCL is planning to merge into the Vulkan API, the Khronos Group wants to make it clear that “all of the merging” is coming from the OpenCL working group. The Vulkan API roadmap is not affected by this decision. Of course, the Vulkan working group will be able to take advantage of technologies that are dropping into their lap, but those discussions have not even begun yet. Read the entire post to learn more about the exciting future of OpenCL and Vulkan.   Read More

Intel Open Sources OpenCL Deep Neural Network library for Intel GPUs

• Tags: OpenCL

The Intel Compute Library for Deep Neural Networks (clDNN) is an open source performance library for Deep Learning (DL) applications intended for acceleration of DL inference on Intel® Processor Graphics (Intel® HD Graphics and Intel® Iris® and Intel® Iris® Pro). clDNN includes highly optimized building blocks to implement convolutional neural networks (CNN) with C and C++ interfaces. This library is also used in the Deep Learning Toolkit found in the Intel Computer Vision SDK Beta. The clDNN library can be accessed at github. To learn more on how to use clDNN see whitepaper   Read More
