Open Standards for Accelerating Embedded Vision and Inferencing: An Industry Overview

Embedded Computing Design LogoThe ever-advancing field of machine learning has created new opportunities for deploying devices and applications that leverage neural network inferencing with never-before-seen levels of vision-based functionality and accuracy, but,the rapidly evolving field has given way to a confusing landscape of processors, accelerators, and libraries. This article treats open interoperability standards and their role in reducing costs and barriers to using inferencing and vision acceleration in real-world products. Read more...


Introducing the glTF Project Explorer 

glTF Project Explorer logoglTF adoption has accelerated, its ecosystem has grown into an abundant trove of tools and applications that can generate and import glTF files. However, this ever-growing diversity has created an urgent need for an efficient tool to catalogue glTF resources across the industry—and to enable developers and artists needing to generate or use glTF assets to find the best tools for their projects.

To fulfill this community need, Khronos has created the glTF Project Explorer as a centralized searchable directory of projects within the glTF ecosystem.
