Developers of Best 3D Web Creative Invited to Present Their Work in Live Performance Setting

The 3D Web Fest will showcase websites that are the best mixture of music, art, and technology, and exhibit what’s possible with the advent of 3D Web. The Web has transitioned from mostly text to an increasingly rich 2D image environment, and now the shift to 3D has arrived enabled by new Web standards and open source technologies. The 3D Web Fest brings together the best of the 3D Web—presented live—amazing, delightful, surprising and at times disturbing. See creations by artists and developers of all kinds and learn more about the future of 3D Web. The 3D Web Fest would like to raise visibility for new possibilities in web site development and design thanks to the support of WebGL on almost every device.

The 3D Web Fest takes place on May 13, 2015; 7:00-10:00PM at the Folsom Street Foundry, 1425 Folsom Street, San Francisco, CA.   Read More

OpenCL: The Hardware Evolution and the Software Revolution, Seminar in Toronto

AJ Guillon will be presenting the upcoming Fields Institute Working Lunch Seminar on OpenCL this April 28th 2015. This talk will motivate the OpenCL standard and present its opportunities and challenges. A survey of performance gains and energy savings will be provided so that the potential of the parallel heterogeneous compute era can be understood. The recent announcements from Khronos at GDC 2015, including Vulkan and OpenCL 2.1, will be echoed. AJ Guillon is a Khronos member and actively contributed to the new OpenCL C++ kernel language, provisionally released as part of OpenCL 2.1.
