APIs ARE the language of the interconnected ecosystem of technology solutions, services, apps and platforms that are powering more and more of our work and personal lives. As the API gold rush continues, the new “All About the API” conference plans to become the conference which brings companies with APIs together with developers and product managers looking to be where the next opportunity lies.
The Landscape of Hardware APIs and Silicon Acceleration Opportunities
Date: Wednesday, July 20, 11:30-12:00
Keynote from Khronos President, Neil Trevett.
Advances in silicon processors continue to pack amazing levels of functionality and performance into a wide variety of devices and platforms. Many cutting-edge applications, such as virtual and augmented reality, depend on harnessing advanced hardware acceleration for parallel computation, 3D graphics and vision processing. This presentation explores the need for open standards to portably and easily harness hardware, and the role of the Khronos Group that specializes in defining royalty-free APIs to connect software to advanced silicon.
