ANARI 1.0 Provisional API for Scalable Data Visualization Released

ANARI LogoThe Khronos® Group announced the release of the ANARI™ 1.0 (Analytic Rendering Interface) provisional open standard API for scalable 3D data visualization. ANARI enables users to build the description of a scene to generate imagery, rather than specifying the details of the rendering process, providing simplified visualization application development and cross-vendor portability to diverse rendering engines, including those using state-of-the-art ray tracing. In addition to the ANARI specification, Khronos has released a sample implementation, starter applications, developer tools and conformance tests into open source - and welcomes community feedback before specification finalization in 2022.

Machine Learning Summit

Machine Learning Summit LogoThe Khronos Group held a summit for machine learning practitioners to provide their input on how acceleration standards should evolve to meet their needs. The summit was held over two days with the goal of enabling a range of hardware and software vendors to briefly present what they believe are the key issues and opportunities for machine learning acceleration and interoperability.

Members of the Khronos Group have taken their input and are currently digesting the information and will present findings in the coming weeks.

New Vulkan Samples!

Vulkan LogoIn the past few weeks, the Vulkan Working Group have put together three new sample implementations to help developers understand the complex API. The new samples are: Thank you to all the Khronos members who worked and contributed to these samples. For more tutorials and samples, visit the Vulkan website.
