OpenVX 1.1 with Convolutional Neural Network extension in action

In December last year, Imagination announced we were the first to submit an OpenVX 1.1 conformant implementation. In this blog post, we will show how our work has developed since then on one of the first implementations of the Khronos OpenVX 1.1 API as well as the new and very first implementation of the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) extension that goes along with it.

Cadence Tensilica Vision P-Series DSPs First OpenVX 1.1 Conformant Imaging/Vision DSPs

Cadence Design Systems, Inc. announced that the Cadence Tensilica Vision P-Series DSPs are the first imaging/vision DSPs to pass Khronos Group's conformance tests for the OpenVX 1.1 specification. Application developers can now take advantage of Tensilica Vision P5/P6 functionality without detailed knowledge of the hardware architecture and still achieve high performance. This enables faster development of computer vision and imaging applications on Tensilica Vision P-Series DSPs being deployed in applications processors for mobile, automotive, drone, security, augmented reality/virtual reality (AR/VR) and other markets. Read the full press release. Read More

Stardock announces Vulkan support for Ashes of the Singularity

• Tags: Vulkan

On the "Ashes of the Singularity" forums, Stardock has announced Vulkan support is mostly complete, coming in June. "However, it won't be until June before it's released as there is a ton of compatibility and optimization work to be done given the game's popularity as a benchmarking tool for high end graphics." Linux support is still up in the air. Read More

Embedded Vision Summit Khronos OpenVX Workshop for Neural Network Acceleration

• Tags: API OpenVX NNEF

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. Read More
