ARM Developer Blog: Vulkan Integration in Unity

• Tags:

Last year at GDC 2016, Khronos launched the Vulkan 1.0 specification and the Khronos members released first Vulkan drivers and SDKs. Just a year later, at GDC 2017 Unity announced the Unity 5.6 release with the built-in Vulkan renderer. With this, Unity showed not only its support to Vulkan but also to developers that expects the best from Unity. This blog covers the topics presented in the ARM Sponsored Talk at GDC 2017 related with Vulkan integration in Unity. The full talk video is also available in the GDC Vault.

Five years ago The International Workshop on OpenCL (IWOCL – "eye-wok-ul") started as a small OpenCL-focused conference. In 2017 it has grown to three full days filled with tutorials, talks, posters and many technical discussions. You’ll hear attendees (and yourself) saying, "I did not know this was going on and I should have known it before." It is a great place to learn the latest on OpenCL. Learn more about the history of IWOCL and the upcoming IWOCL event May 16-18, 2017 in Toronto, Canada.

VeriSilicon’s Vivante VIP8000 Neural Network Processor with OpenVX and OpenCL

• Tags:

VeriSilicon Holdings Co., Ltd. announces VIP8000, a highly scalable and programmable processor for computer vision and artificial intelligence. It delivers over 3 Tera MACs per second, with power consumption more efficient than 1.5 GMAC/second/mW and the smallest silicon area in industry with 16FF process technology. The VIP8000 can directly import neural networks generated by popular deep learning frameworks, such as Caffe and TensorFlow and neural networks can be integrated to other computer vision functions using the OpenVX framework. The processor is programmed by OpenCL or OpenVX with a unified programming model across the hardware units, including customer application-specific hardware acceleration units. Learn more about the VIP8000.

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.

The Khronos Group announces the immediate release of the OpenVX 1.2 specification for cross-platform acceleration of computer vision applications and libraries. OpenVX is a high-level, graph-based API targeted at real-time mobile and embedded platforms. This open, cross-platform, royalty-free standard enables performance-portable, power-optimized computer vision applications such as face, body, and gesture tracking, smart video surveillance, autonomous driver assistance systems, visual inspection, and robotics. Core OpenVX 1.2 has significantly expanded functionality, including conditional execution, feature detection, and classification operations.

NVIDIA GPU support via CUDA backend allowing OpenCL applications to be run

• Tags:

Although this backend is still a work in progress, many core features are implemented, allowing real OpenCL applications to be run. This backend allows us to run SPIR-based applications on NVIDIA devices, such as SYCL codes compiled with Codeplay's ComputeCpp compiler.
