LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Dear Colleague,Embedded Vision Summit

We have just released another batch of great presentation videos from the recent Embedded Vision Summit. First, make sure to check out the highly rated keynote presentation "Bringing Computer Vision to the Consumer," delivered by Mike Aldred, Electronics Lead at Dyson. The company's 360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner uses computer vision as its primary localization technology. Mike’s talk charts some of the high and lows of the project, the challenges of bridging between academia and business, and how to use a diverse team to take an idea from the lab into real homes.

Next is "Efficient Implementation of Convolutional Neural Networks using OpenCL on FPGAs," presented by Deshanand Singh of Altera. In this talk, Deshanand gives a detailed explanation of how convolutional neural networks (CNN) algorithms, which are becoming increasingly popular in vision applications, can be expressed in OpenCL and compiled directly to FPGA hardware. Also not to be missed is "Understanding Adaptive Machine Learning Vision Algorithms and Implementing Them on GPUs and Heterogeneous Platforms," from Harris Gasparakis of AMD. Harris shows how OpenCL, HSA (...
