Intel's OpenVINO Toolkit is the 2019 Vision Product of the Year Award Winner in the Developer Tools category. The OpenVINO toolkit (available as either the Intel Distribution or the Open Source version) is a free software developer toolkit for prototyping and deploying of high performance computer vision (CV) and deep learning (DL) applications from device to cloud across a broad range of Intel platforms. The toolkit helps to speed up computer vision workloads, streamline DL deployments, and enables easy heterogeneous execution across Intel processors and accelerators. This flexibility offers developers multiple options in choosing the right combination of performance, power, and cost efficiency for their solution’s needs.
“We thank the Embedded Vision Alliance for recognizing the OpenVINO™ toolkit as its Developer Tool of the Year. Edge solutions require diverse hardware options to meet stringent performance, power, latency and cost requirements. This award reinforces the value of a high- performance, unified software environment across diverse hardware to enable developers to deploy AI solutions.”
