Khronos and Imagination Seminar

Khronos Group will join hands with Imagination to hold a seminar on forward-looking innovation and ecological collaboration on 19th July in Shanghai.


About this event

In this AI era, as a high-performance hardware accelerator the GPU, in addition to graphics, is playing a more important role in the fields of general-purpose computing, machine vision, deep learning, and training inference. Open and standardised APIs are further improving the efficiency of advanced computing and expanding the scope of the GPU, helping developers to deploy their applications to the wider market.

To embrace the opportunities and challenges of the evolving digital landscape, the Khronos Group, an industry organisation dedicated to open API standards, is joining Imagination on 19 July in Shanghai, China in a seminar focusing on forward-looking innovation and ecological collaboration.

Imagination is delighted that several international industry experts will be joining us at the seminar, where our ecosystem partners will share their thoughts on technologies and their applications. We will also discuss the latest in GPU technology, open-source standards, open API interfaces and the collaboration between our ecosystem partners.

We hope that the collaboration between Khronos and Imagination will inspire global chip companies and developers to accelerate the launch of unique, innovative products.

Date: Tuesday, July 19 – 9am – 5:30pm CST

*Do not worry if you can’t join us live. This seminar will be live-streamed in Shanghai, and an on-demand version of the event will be available after the event.
