Helping to Drive the Evolution of Machine Learning Acceleration Standards for Training and Inferencing
The speed of innovation within the machine learning ecosystem is faster than ever before, and shows no signs of slowing with new architectures regularly hitting the headlines. While such innovations are fantastic in driving performance and functionality, the sheer diversity of hardware and software solutions poses a challenge for developers hoping to support the latest advancements, while also reaching the widest audience.
Systems built for neural networks and machine learning typically base their performance on custom ML processors, CPUs, GPUs or FPGAs. This is an area in which Khronos is a recognized expert, being the home of some of the world’s leading standards for heterogeneous compute acceleration for embedded devices, desktops, and large HPC servers.

The Khronos Group warmly welcomes members of the ML community with an interest in training and inferencing acceleration to join the Khronos ML Forum. The forum was launched in April 2022 and provides all who join the following opportunities:
All forum members will be invited to attend regular forum meetings where group members can present the key issues in machine learning acceleration and interoperability, and discuss possible solutions with each other and Khronos members. Khronos also realises that ML developers are often unaware or unclear on the best way to use the features and extensions that already exist in the current generation of Khronos APIs and associated extensions. To help address this issue we are running a series of knowledge sharing webinars for ML Forum members where a panel of experts will share their experience using Khronos API's in machine learning, discuss best practice, and answer questions from the audience.
