May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit Technical Presentation: "Trends and Recent Developments in Processors for Vision," Jeff Bier, BDTI

Jeff Bier, President and co-founder of BDTI and founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance, presents the "Trends and Recent Developments in Processors for Vision" tutorial at the May 2014 Embedded Vision Summit.

Processor suppliers are investing intensively in new processors for vision applications, employing a diverse range of architecture approaches to meet the conflicting requirements of high performance, low cost, energy efficiency, and ease of application development.

In this presentation, Bier draws from BDTI's ongoing processor evaluation work to highlight significant recent developments in processors for vision applications, including mobile application processors, graphics processing units, and specialized vision processors. He also explores what BDTI considers to be the most significant trends in processors for vision—such as the increasing use of heterogeneous architectures—and the implications of these trends for system designers and application developers.
