Imagination’s PowerVR GPU is first to pass OpenVX 1.1 conformance with Khronos

• Tags: Conformance OpenVX

Imagination Technologies announces that a PowerVR GPU is the first to achieve Khronos OpenVX 1.1 conformance. With OpenVX, developers can run fully optimized vision algorithms on the highly parallel, power-efficient PowerVR GPUs that are at the heart of many of the world’s mobile, automotive and embedded devices. Frank Brill, chairman of the Khronos OpenVX working group, says: “The momentum we are seeing with OpenVX is strong and growing, with conformant OpenVX 1.0 implementations and tools shipping from numerous vendors. We congratulate Imagination on being the first adopter member to achieve OpenVX 1.1 conformance, enabling developers creating applications on Imagination’s popular PowerVR GPUs to take advantage of OpenVX 1.1’s expanded range of processing functions and enhanced flexibility.” View all products that are in conformance with OpenVX or learn more about becoming an OpenVX adopter.

Khronos Launches Dual Neural Network Standard Initiatives

• Tags: API OpenVX NNEF

The Khronos Group today announced the creation of two standardization initiatives to address the growing industry interest in the deployment and acceleration of neural network technology. Firstly, Khronos has formed a new working group to create an API independent standard file format for exchanging deep learning data between training systems and inference engines. Work on generating requirements and detailed design proposals for the Neural Network Exchange Format (NNEF™) is already underway, and companies interested in participating are welcome to join Khronos for a voice and a vote in the development process. Secondly, the OpenVX™ working group has released an extension to enable Convolutional Neural Network topologies to be represented as OpenVX graphs and mixed with traditional vision functions. Read the press release about both of these Neural Network Standard Initiatives.
