|LETTER FROM THE EDITOR|
Preparations for the May 29th Embedded Vision Summit West in Santa Clara are progressing rapidly. We're pleased to announce that the Summit will feature presentations by top-rated speakers, including Francis MacDougall of Qualcomm on gesture interfaces and Simon Morris of CogniVue on recognition and classification in augmented reality. Check out the published abstracts on the Summit Presentations page. Personally, I am also looking forward to the morning keynote by Yann LeCun of Facebook and the afternoon keynote by Nathaniel Fairfield of Google.
I'm also happy to be able to tell you about two technical workshops that will take place on May 28, the day before the Summit. The first, from Alliance founding member BDTI, takes place from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM and is entitled "Implementing Computer Vision and Embedded Vision: A Technical Introduction". It will provide a practical tutorial on processors, sensors, tools, and development techniques for vision-based application and system design, including OpenCV and OpenCL. The second, occurring from 7:30 AM to 2:00 PM that same day, is co-presented by BDTI and fellow Alliance members Analog Devices and Avnet Electronics. It will explore hardware and software for image processing and video analytics in a hands-on fashion, featuring the Avnet/Analog Devices Embedded Vision Starter Kit.
Online registration for the Embedded Vision Summit West is now available, along with travel and housing information. Last year's Summit sold out, so I encourage you to sign up right away before all of the attendance slots are filled. And while you're on the Alliance website, make sure you check out all the new content published there the last two weeks; tutorial and demonstration videos from NVIDIA and Xilinx, news writeups on vision-centric smartphones from Google and HTC, a press release from CEVA, and a plethora of market analysis report summaries. Thanks as always for your support of the Embedded Vision Alliance, and for your interest in and contributions to embedded vision technologies, products and applications. Whenever you come up with an idea as to how the Alliance can better service your needs, you know where to find me.
