Title: Khronos Open Standard APIs -- The Foundation for AR and VR
Abstract: Discover how the latest advances in open, cross-platform API standards for silicon acceleration are creating the foundation for deploying VR and AR devices and use cases. Standards covered include OpenVX low power vision processing, Vulkan next–generation GPU acceleration, OpenCL parallel computation and OpenXR VR/ AR device control - that together will accelerate the availability of AR and VR on a platform near you. Bio: Neil has spent over thirty years in the 3D graphics industry. At NVIDIA he works to enable applications leverage advanced silicon acceleration, with a particular focus on Augmented Reality. Neil is also the elected President of the Khronos Group standards consortium where he initiated the OpenGL ES API, now used on billions of mobile phones, and helped catalyze the WebGL project to bring interactive 3D graphics to the Web. Neil also chairs the OpenCL working group defining the open standard for heterogeneous parallel computation and has helped establish and launch the OpenVX vision API, the new-generation Vulkan GPU API and the OpenXR standard for portable AR and VR.
