Qualcomm has released the 5th part of their Vulkan Tutorials on Youtube. This video gives developers details on the steps involved to render a triangle in Vulkan. Learn more about Vulkan and the Adreno SDK
Neil Trevett, President of the Khronos Group, presents the "Vision API Maze: Options and Trade-offs" video tutorial, (free registration required) at the May 2016 Embedded Vision Summit. In this presentation, Neil Trevett, President of the Khronos Group standards organization, updates the landscape of APIs for vision software development, explaining where each one fits in the development flow. Neil also highlights where these APIs overlap and where they complement each other, and previews some of the latest developments in these APIs.
The Khronos UK Chapter held their 3rd Vulkan Developer event which took a longer and deeper dive in programming 3D graphics using the Vulkan API. The video and slides from this event are now online.
Debugging with Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications: This video demonstrate how to use Intel SDK for OpenCL API debugger to debug your application’s host code and how to use Intel SDK for OpenCL CPU Kernel Debugger to debug your OpenCL kernels. Performance Analysis with Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications: This video demonstrate how to use Intel SDK for OpenCL analysis tools to identify performance bottlenecks in the host API calls and optimize the kernel code to get better utilization and reduce the latency on Intel® Processor Graphics.
Khronos 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.
ELVEES companies group and Imagination Technologies announce the ELVEES Image Semantic Engine (ELISE), a unique next-generation multi-platform SoC offering a wide range of video analytics markets. Companies can use the new ELISE chip to develop a new generation of IP cameras with video analysis and a wide range of OEM modules. Unique hierarchical ELISE tools have been developed, including libraries for the Khronos OpenVX API and the innovative VIPE tool for vision and general purpose algorithm development on mixed multi-platform CPU/Velcore/GPU SoC systems.
Both AMD and Khronos Group now have their GDC related presentations online. You will find the AMD list of presentation on their new GPU Open website. Khronos has their presentations and videos listed on their event page archive.
