In the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO workshop, you will learn the developer tools and hardware/software kits that Intel is developing to optimize performance and accelerate the deployment of deep learning inference at the edge.

Join us for a two-day, hands-on workshop where Intel® will take you through a computer vision workflow using the latest Intel® technologies and the OpenVINO toolkits including support for deep learning algorithms that help accelerate smart video applications. You will learn how to optimize and improve performance with and without external accelerators and utilize tools to help you identify the best hardware configuration for your needs. This workshop will also outline the various machine learning frameworks and topologies supported by Intel® accelerator tools in addition to a brief discussion on how to implement custom layers.

By attending this workshop you will learn:

  • Intel® computer vision technology
  • Application development with the OpenVINO™ toolkit
  • To accelerate computer vision applications
  • Performance optimization techniques with hardware acceleration


What we will provide:

Intel will provide the necessary hardware and software for the workshop.
