Since launching OpenVINO in 2018, the chip giant allowed hundreds of thousands of developers to accelerate the performance of AI output, starting from the edge and extending to both businesses and customers.
This latest release includes new features based on developer reviews over three and a half years, as well as more choices deep learning models, more device portability options and higher output performance with fewer code changes.
Adam Burns, Vice President of OpenVINO Developer Tools at Intel Network and Edge Group, provided further insight into this latest version of the company’s distribution of OpenVINO’s toolkit press releasesaying:
“The latest version of OpenVINO 2022.1 is based on more than three years of training hundreds of thousands of developers to simplify and automate optimization. The latest update adds automatic hardware detection and automatic optimization, so software developers can achieve optimal performance on each platform. This software plus Intel Silicon give a significant return on investment in IQ and are easily implemented in Intel-based solutions on your network. ”
The Intel Distribution Toolkit of OpenVINO, based on oneAPI, is a set of high-performance in-depth learning tools designed to achieve faster and more accurate real-world results deployed in edge-to-cloud production. New features in the latest release make it easier for developers to adopt, maintain, optimize, and deploy code with ease in an extended range of deep learning models.
The latest version of the Intel Distribution Toolbox of OpenVINO has an updated, cleaner API that requires fewer code changes when migrating from another platform. At the same time, the API parameters of the Optimizer model have been reduced to minimize complexity.
Intel has also included extensive support for natural language programming (NLP) models for uses such as text-to-speech and voice recognition. In terms of performance, the device’s AUTO mode now self-unlocks the available output power of the system based on model requirements, so apps no longer need to know their computing environment to move forward.
Finally, Intel has added support for hybrid architecture 12th generation Intel Core processors to improve high-performance output on both the CPU and the integrated GPU.
