Nile 4

Speaker:
Neil Trevett, President Khronos, Vice President NVIDIA

The Khronos Group develops an ecosystem of open, royalty-free, low-level silicon acceleration standards. This session will provide an up-to-the-minute overview of Khronos APIs and file formats that are directly relevant to 3D, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, including:

  • Vulkan and WebGL for interactive 3D rendering on native and Web platforms
  • OpenXR for cross-platform, portable Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality
  • glTF for efficient runtime transmission of 3D assets and scenes
  • OpenVX for portable, power efficient vision processing
  • NNEF for exchanging Neural Network information between training and inferencing frameworks - OpenCL for general purpose, heterogeneous parallel processing.

Nile 3 (Courses)

Author(s)/Speaker(s):
Edward Angel, University of New Mexico
Dave Shreiner, Unity Technologies

Level: Beginner

This course provides an introduction to application programming with WebGL. We introduce both the API and its integration within the HTML5 framework. Our focus will include basic applications of WebGL and converting from desktop OpenGL to WebGL.

State-of-the-art with WebGL 2.0
