OpenVX tutorial in conjunction with CVPR Boston

OpenVX tutorial in conjunction with CVPR Boston

CVPR is the premier annual Computer Vision event comprising the main CVPR conference and several co-located workshops and short courses. The Khronos Group OpenVX working group members Victor Erukhimov from Itseez, Kari Pulli from Light and Thierry Lepley from NVIDIA will be presenting. The tutorial will focus on a tracking algorithm implemented with OpenVX. At the end of the session, participants will know how to develop code with OpenVX, and optimize for performance. Read More

Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH High Performance Computing in Computer Graphics May 20th

Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH is presenting "High Performance Computing in Computer Graphics" on May 20th 2015 at the University of Toronto. Continuing with their recent focus on the technical side of computer graphics, the Toronto ACM SIGGRAPH Chapter is delighted to invite you to their next event, focused on high-performance computing (HPC). Presenting will be AJ Guillon, German Andryeyev, and Ned Nedialkov. AJ Guillon is a Khronos member and a contributor to OpenCL 2.1 and the OpenCL C++ kernel language. He has worked extensively with OpenCL since December 2008, when the first OpenCL 1.0 specification was released. AJ will talk about some of the details of the new OpenCL 2.1 provisional specification, including the new C++ kernel language, and discuss its benefits and pitfalls. Read More

Mora group announces SparkCL an OpenCL based framework for heterogeneous clusters

The Mora research group at UML released SparkCL an open source unified programming framework for heterogeneous clusters based on Java, OpenCL, Aparapi and the Apache Spark framework. The motivation behind this work is to bring unconventional compute cores such as FPGAs/GPUs/APUs/DSPs and future core types into mainstream programming use. The framework allows equal treatment of different computing devices under the Spark framework and introduces the ability to offload computations to acceleration devices. There is a white paper describing this work and documentation and source repository on Gitlab. Read More

An Introduction to OpenCL C++

AJ Guillon, who is a Khronos member and contributed to OpenCL 2.1 and the OpenCL C++ kernel language, has written an introduction to OpenCL C++. Previous versions of OpenCL have featured OpenCL C, based upon the C programming language. The provisional OpenCL 2.1 specification is the first OpenCL version to feature a kernel language based upon C++. The relative advantages and disadvantages of C and C++ are already well known, and OpenCL C++ inherits many of them. The OpenCL working group has responded to developers’ requests to be able to write high-level abstractions enabled by C++, while maintaining some compatibility with OpenCL C, by providing the OpenCL C++ kernel language.
