If you've spent any notable amount of time on the Alliance website perusing its content, you've undoubtedly come across the keyword "OpenVX". This API, developed by the Khronos Group (which also develops the well known OpenGL, OpenCL and other API specifications), a standard for cross platform acceleration of computer vision applications. OpenVX enables power efficient vision processing with a focus on mobile and embedded systems.
The Embedded Vision Alliance, in partnership with Apress Media LLC, is pleased to provide you with a free electronic copy of the newly published book "Computer Vision Metrics," by Scott Krig, and published on the Alliance website. The Alliance will be periodically publishing new book chapters in both HTML and PDF formats, whose links you'll find here.
To date, the Embedded Vision Alliance sponsored and otherwise participated in plenty of "physical" events, such as last week's Embedded Vision Summit. It's also been involved in multiple webinars and other online events. But on the latter front, it hasn't yet tackled a Google+ Hangout...until later this month, that is.
The Embedded Vision Summit West is less than a week away, on May 29 (at the Santa Clara California Convention Center) to be exact, and attendee registrations are really starting to pour in. As I've mentioned before, last year's event sold out, so to avoid being one of those turned away, I'd encourage you to get your own registration in right away.
The news coverage so far of the upcoming Embedded Vision Summit West has focused primarily on the downstream aspects of the information you'll receive there: the keynotes from Facebook and Google, for example, or the
I'm writing this particular news post exactly three weeks from the start of the Embedded Vision Summit, and with every passing day I'm growing ever more excited for the event to happen. Key to my enthusiasm (albeit by no means the only reason) is the technical presentation program, spanning sixteen half-hour talks from fifteen member company representatives.
Earlier today, I published the informative talk given at the March 2014 Embedded Vision Alliance Member Meeting by Larry Matthies, Supervisor of the Computer Vision Group at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Embedded Vision Alliance member CogniVue has several free hour-long webcasts planned that will undoubtedly be of interest to many of you. The first, "Designing and Developing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS)," takes place May 15 at 11AM ET and is conducted in partnership with Mentor Graphics. The abstract is as follows:
Today's edition of InsideDSP, the monthly newsletter published by Embedded Vision Alliance founding member company BDTI, contains an article on NVIDIA's Jetson TK1 evaluation board and its silicon foundation, the "Logan" ARM Cortex-A15-based member of the Tegra K1 SoC family.
