LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Dear Colleague,Embedded Vision Summit

Last time, I told you about the presentations at next month's Embedded Vision Summit on convolutional neural networks (CNNs), an increasingly popular means of extracting meaning from images. This time, I'd like to highlight Summit events focused on another important topic: industry standardization.

Industry standards are critical to enabling adoption of any new technology. With respect to embedded vision, I'm talking specifically about APIs (application programming interfaces) and algorithm libraries. For example, Khronos' new OpenVX standard enables cross-platform acceleration of computer vision algorithms. Khronos' OpenCL framework is often used for writing computer vision programs that execute on heterogeneous processing platforms. And the popular open-source OpenCV library of computer vision functions, while not a formal standard, is a de facto standard for many developers.

All of these subjects will be showcased at the Embedded Vision Summit:

  • Gary Bradski, head of the OpenCV Foundation and one of the most recognizable names in computer vision, will present "The OpenCV Open...
