Yair Siegel, Director of Business Development at CEVA, and Gary Gitelson, VP of Engineering at mPerpetuo, presents the “Rapid Development of Efficient Vision Applications Using the Halide Language and CEVA Processors” tutorial at the May 2018 Embedded Vision Summit.
Halide is a domain-specific programming language for imaging and vision applications that has been adopted by leading technology companies. Halide provides abstractions that allow for rapid development of highly optimized and portable imaging and vision applications. When using the Halide development environment, programmers can create software with performance comparable to or better than that obtained with hand-coded assembly language or intrinsics, while achieving significantly reduced development times and improved code consistency and maintainability.
CEVA and mPerpetuo have partnered to enable Halide on the CEVA-XM family of low-power IP processor cores for imaging and vision. In this presentation, Siegel and Gitelson explore using Halide with CEVA processors as a rapid and powerful method of expressing, prototyping and optimizing complex vision and imaging processing pipelines.
