Khronos Sessions

Keynote: The State of Khronos Standards Powering the Future of Embedded Vision & Inferencing

Speaker: Neil Trevett, The Khronos Group, President
Date: 4 March 2021
Time: 4:15-4:45pm CET

As machine learning advances, so too does the number of accelerators, processors, libraries and compilers in the market. Proprietary APIs and formats can create a complex industry landscape that hinders market growth. Open standards have an important role to play in enabling interoperability for faster, easier deployment of vision-based systems.

In this session, Khronos President Neil Trevett will provide a state-of-the-industry update on the family of Khronos open standards for programming and deploying accelerated inferencing and embedded vision including OpenCL, Vulkan, OpenVX, SYCL and NNEF. The presentation will include future directions for these standards and provide attendees insights into which of these standards may be relevant to their embedded vision and inferencing projects.

Neil is Vice President of Developer Ecosystems at NVIDIA and the elected President of the Khronos Group, where he initiated the OpenGL ES standard now used by billions worldwide every day, helped catalyze the WebGL project to bring interactive 3D graphics to the Web, fostered the creation of the glTF standard for 3D assets, chairs the OpenCL working group defining the open standard for heterogeneous parallel computation, and helped establish and launch the new-generation Vulkan GPU API.
