Object recognition using Convolutional Neural Networks on a PowerVR GPU

• Tags:

This week at the Embedded Vision Summit (EVS) in California Imagination is showcasing their latest Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) object recognition demo. All of these networks have been implemented using Imagination’s own DNN library. IMG DNN sits on top of OpenCL but doesn’t obscure it, and makes use of OpenCL constructs so it can be used alongside other custom OpenCL code. Imagination’s Paul Brasnett is talking at EVS on the subject of ‘Training CNNs for Efficient Inference‘ and for further reading, take a look at this CNN based number recognition demo, which uses OpenVX with CNN extension. Learn more about Imagination's Convolutional Neural Networks.

Intel Computer Vision SDK Beta built on OpenVX

• Tags:

The Intel Computer Vision SDK Beta is for developing and deploying vision-oriented solutions on platforms from Intel, including autonomous vehicles, digital surveillance cameras, robotics, and mixed-reality headsets. Based on OpenVX, this SDK offers many useful extensions and supports heterogeneous execution across CPU and SoC accelerators using an advanced graph compiler, optimized and developer-created kernels, and design and analysis tools. It also includes deep-learning tools that unleash inference performance on deep-learning deployment. If the functionality you need is not already available in the supplied library, you can create custom kernels using C, C++, or OpenCL kernels.
