AMD TrueAudio Next (TAN) is a software development kit for GPU accelerated audio signal processing. TAN SDK Features Fast OpenCL parallel batch convolution engine; Multi-threaded, multi-queue, real-time architecture; Extendable open source API; CPU and GPU implementations for all functions and Sample applications for GPU acceleration of Virtual Reality audio.
StreamComputing is holding a 4-day training course from 24 to 28 October on OpenCL-on-FPGAs using Altera hardware. The goals include: correctly writing OpenCL code for FPGAs, learning to work with Quartus and understanding the important optimisation techniques. Complete details are available online.
Khronos Group is at SIGGRAPH this week. If you are going be sure to bookmark our SIGGRAPH event page containing our complete list of BOFs and Khronos related sessions. We'll have free t-shirts, a Chapters BOF on Tuesday, several Khronos Tech BOFs on Wednesday as well as our famous After Party BOF Blitz where you can meet, ask questions and eat with some of the folks behind the Khronos technologies. Our Wednesday line-up includes:
- OpenVX & OpenCL @ 10am
- OpenCL, SYCL, & SPIR-V @ 11:00am
- WebGL & glTF @ 1:00pm
- Vulkan, OpenGL, & OpenGL ES @ 2:30pm
- and the Khronos After Party @ 6:00pm
Starting today at 2pm and running until Wednesday there is a good selection of Khronos related courses, papers and non Khronos BOFs. Be sure to also check out the Khronos member booths including AMD, Google, Intel, KDAB and The QT Company, MAXON, Microsoft, NVIDIA, Qualcomm and Unity.
Glare Technologies Indigo 4 renderer in its beta state is using OpenCL to deliver 100% pure GPU rendering. Glare Technologies says this "means very fast rendering on all OpenCL compliant GPUs, including AMD, Intel and Nvidia GPUs."
The schedules for the all-day Khronos BOF Blitz and famous BOF Blitz After Party are now online. Featuring four BOFs on Wednesday July 27th, and a 5th BOF on Tuesday July 26th for Khronos Chapters. We've also compiled a list of all the SIGGRAPH sessions, courses, workshops and BOFs that contain Khronos Technology. Unsurprisingly there is a ton of Vulkan stuff going on this year. Checkout the event page today. Hope to see lots of you in Anaheim during SIGGRAPH!
The deep learning speech recognition acceleration solution leverages an Altera Arria 10 FPGA, iFLYTEK’s deep neural network (DNN) recognition algorithms and Inspur’s FPGA-based DNN parallel design, migration and optimization with OpenCL. The solution has a hardware platform in CPU+Arria 10 FPGA heterogeneous architecture and software in a high-level programming model in OpenCL to enable migration from CPU to FPGAs.
The Embedded Vision Alliance has published a OpenCL-themed article along with help from several Khronos member companies, including AMD, ARM, Imagination Technologies and Intel. Free registration is required.
Khronos Member AJ Guillon, a contributor to OpenCL, and creator of a popular YouTube training series, has announced paid OpenCL training in Sunnyvale, CA and Toronto, Canada. Training will take place July 19 – 21 in Toronto, and July 26 – 28 in Sunnyvale. An optional review day to help you brush up on background is offered July 18 and July 25. Sign up early for a discount
