Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA

Don’t miss this year’s OpenVX Workshop at Embedded Vision Summit. Khronos will present a day-long hands-on workshop all about OpenVX cross-platform neural network acceleration API for embedded vision applications. We’ve developed a new curriculum so even if you attended in past years, this is a do-not-miss, jam-packed tutorial with new information on computer vision algorithms for feature tracking and neural networks mapped to the graph API. We’ll be doing a hands-on practice session that gives participants a chance to solve real computer vision problems using OpenVX with the folks who created the API. We’ll also be talking about the OpenVX roadmap and what’s to come. 

Khronos Standards for Neural Networks and Embedded Vision

Date: Thursday, May 24, 2018 from 8:00am - 5:30pm

Learn how to use Khronos cross-platform standards to implement inferencing and vision applications that are not tied to a single vendors silicon. We will cover the new NNEF (Neural Network Exchange Format), the OpenVX vision and inferencing run-time, and SYCL for C++-based neural network acceleration. A set of examples for neural networks and computer vision mapped to OpenVX graph API are discussed. Also covered is the deployment model that pre-compiles a graph to create optimized binaries for deployment use cases, such as, inference neural networks. The course includes hands-on session that gets the participants started on solving real computer vision and neural networks problems using Khronos standards.

By attending this workshop you will gain:

  • An understanding of the architecture of Khronos standards for computer vision and neural networks
  • Fluency in actually using NNEF and OpenVX for real-time computer vision and neural network
  • Familiarity with SYCL and its ecosystem

Audience: This seminar is intended for engineers, researchers, and software developers who develop vision and neural network applications and want to benefit from transparent HW acceleration. Also, managers that want to get a general understanding of the structure and uses of Khronos standards.

Khronos Technology Related Sessions

Technical Insight Session:
“Programming Techniques for Implementing Inference Software Efficiently" 

Presented by Andrew Richards, (Khronos SYCL chair  | CEO & Founder, Codeplay)

This talk will explore the approaches to implement deep neural networks in software, from how to map software to the highly-parallel processors needed for AI, to major AI frameworks. This will cover the LLVM compiler chain and the OpenCL, HSA and SYCL programming standards (including how they compare with CUDA), as well as TensorFlow and Caffe.
