Current-Day Problems with Analytic Rendering: Why an Open Standard is Needed and What an API Design Could Look Like

Recent advances in rendering technology have dramatically improved data visualization, delivering imagery that is highly physically accurate and visual cues that allow users to intuitively understand complex data sets. Particularly, the introduction of real-time ray tracing has gone a long way to advance the technology. However, while these graphical techniques are, indeed, impressive, their application developments are intensely complex and often too expensive. Read more to learn how The Khronos Group’s new Analytic Rendering Exploratory Group seeks to find a solution.
