Open Minds to Open Standards for the Deep Learning Automotive Solutions

Thursday, September 19, 11:35am to noon | Minerva Seminar Room
Presented by Stephane Strahm of Kalray

Overview: In order to temper the automotive industry’s rapidly advancing connected technology, standards are being evaluated or created to improve interoperability of components as system complexity grows. This is happening nowhere more so than in the area of intelligent data compute for tactical driving systems – autonomous vehicles. Khronos’ open standards are a key solution to providing versatility in the supply chain and embracing more of the collective AI development community to solve tomorrow’s goals. This presentation will take you through the success of Khronos open standards for machine learning, embedded vision and heterogeneous compute and show you how you can participate to shape the future of safety-critical APIs required for autonomous software solutions.

Key Takeaways:

  • Safety critical open standards opens up interoperability possibilities
  • Allow for versatility in your supply chain
  • Khronos open standards give you a say in defining the API features specification
  • Influence a specification that is compatible with your competitor’s supplier product
  • Spread the intellectual work load across suppliers with a common interface
  • Increase the adoption of your products by using Open Standards
  • Get an overview and understanding of the deep learning compute stacks used in automotive and the open standards available from Khronos for vendors.
  • Khronos can provide a platform to develop new open standard safety critical APIs
  • Help define compatibility and open up innovation using open standards
