"Navigating the Vision API Jungle: Which API Should You Use and Why?," a Presentation from the Khronos Group

Neil Trevett, Vice President of Mobile Ecosystem at NVIDIA and President of the Khronos Group, presents the "Navigating the Vision API Jungle: Which API Should You Use and Why?" tutorial at the May 2015 Embedded Vision Summit.

It’s often said that the wonderful thing about standards is that there are so many to choose from. This sentiment certainly seems justified in the world of vision software development There are industry-standard APIs like OpenCL and OpenVX, supplier-specific APIs like CUDA and Renderscript, and open source projects, such as OpenCV. Some of these, like OpenVX and OpenCV, are vision-specific, while others, like OpenCL, are general-purpose. Which one(s) should you use for your project?

In this presentation, Neil Trevett, President of the standards organization Khronos Group, maps 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.
