OpenVX Tutorial Videos from 2016 Embedded Vision Summit now onlineKhronos sponsored a day long course covering both the function-based API and the graph API that enable OpenVX developers to efficiently run computer vision algorithms on heterogeneous computing architectures. One section explains the tutorial exercises with a VirtualBox VM, which can be downloaded from the tutorial on Github. The Embedded Vision Summit schedule is located here, the tutorial is on Github and the associated videos from the day long tutorial are available on Youtube.

Khronos is proud to be a sponsor of the Embedded Vision Summit on May 2-4 2016 in Santa Clara, CA. The Khronos OpenVX working group will be running an in-depth OpenVX tutorial at this highly focused event. The OpenVX workshop is being held on the final day of the Embedded Vision Summit, and includes tutorials on the OpenVX architecture, a hands-on lab to try out real-world examples of OpenVX acceleration, and tips to deploy OpenVX in your own applications and products.

Tomasz Bednarz will be giving a 30-minute talk about Vulkan, as an API that connects across scales. The session is about various hacks in code (code is art), and art. Starting with 8-bit computers, talk about graphics, art installations, shaders and using shaders to paint the world in VR, and finishing off with large visualisation systems, and how we do graphics and compute using massive systems.

There will be a Vulkan Keynote at Laval Virtual March 24 2016 in Laval France. Tristan Lorach will present "From OpenGL to Vulkan: looking for optimal graphic performances". The conference will explore the constituent elements of the new Vulkan API and explain why it was created.

The Khronos Group is holding a series of sessions today in San Francisco. If your are at GDC, take a break and a 5 minute walk over to Green Space to see one of the several sessions Khronos will be hosting. Start the day off with Jon Peddie Research at 8:30AM PT. After a short break there will be 3 back-to-back sessions: WebGL+glTF at noon, Khronos Chapters lunch at 1PM and Vulkan at 2PM. Ending the day off will be a large Khronos Social from 7PM-9:30PM. All the details you need are on the Khronos event page. Unable to attend? No worries, Khronos has you covered with a Livestream of both the WebGL + glTF session and the Vulkan session. We're expecting a lot of people today and space is limited. Please be sure to register for one of the few remaining spots if you haven't done so already.

Learn more about this newly-launched graphics and compute API directly from Khronos, the people who created it. In this 1-hour session, we will talk about the API, and also go into details about the Vulkan SDK from LunarG, and much more. We’ll of course end with a Q&A session. This webinar is directed to Asia and the surrounding area. Presentation and Q&A conducted in English. Register today!

Advanced Hands-On OpenCL Tutorial To Kick-Off IWOCL 2016The organisers of IWOCL 2016 (“eye-wok-ul”), the International Workshop on OpenCL announced that registration is now open for the “Advanced Hands-On OpenCL Tutorial”. The tutorial focuses on advanced OpenCL concepts and is an extension of the highly successful ‘Hands on OpenCL’ course which has received over 6,500 downloads from GitHub. Simon McIntosh-Smith, Associate Professor in High Performance Computing at the University of Bristol and one of the tutorial authors will lead the sessions. The full-day Advanced Hands-On OpenCL tutorial takes place on Tuesday 19th April at the C3 Conference Center in Vienna, Austria. The tutorial can also be combined with attendance at the full IWOCL event.

The week of March 16th is a busy one so be sure to add the annual Khronos Group sessions to your calendar. This year we have a great line up including Vulkan, WebGL and glTF. There will be a special Chapters Luncheon and after the day winds down join Khronos for a special evening social full of good conversation with the Khronos Group members who bring you Vulkan, WebGL, OpenGL, and more. Register today for all the sessions you will attend.
