Hosted by Bryce Johnstone and Paul Brasnett

Webinar Details:

9 November, 2016

30 minutes


This webinar will explore one of the hot topics in Automotive today, that of deep learning/convolutional neural network algorithms. We will look at the types of application they are used in, how they work and how the GPU Compute capability of PowerVR Graphics architecture enables vastly improved performance and power over traditional CPU execution. 

What you’ll learn

  • How CNNs work
  • How CNNs are advantageous in applications for semi and fully autonomous vehicles
  • PowerVR compute architecture. How the structure lends itself to massively parallel computing
