If you're a game developer and not yet up to speed on Vulkan*, you should be. Vulkan APIs are one of the industry's hottest new technologies. They support multithreaded programming, simplify cross-platform development and have the backing of makers of major chips, GPUs, and devices. Vulkan APIs are positioned to become one of the next dominant graphics rendering platforms. Characteristics of the platform help apps gain longevity and run in more places. You might say that Vulkan lets apps live long and prosper—and this code sample will help get you started.

Khronos member Cadence Design Systems, and ArcSoft, announced they have partnered to develop AI and vision applications for Cadence Tensilica Vision DSPs. The OpenVX conformant Vision P6 DSP supports AI applications developed in the Caffe, TensorFlow and TensorFlowLite frameworks through the Tensilica Xtensa Neural Network Compiler, Android Neural Network API for on-device AI acceleration in Android-powered devices and includes complete, optimized support for more than 1,500 OpenCV-based vision and OpenVX 1.1 library functions.
