OpenCL™ Runtime Deployment on Linux* OS

Many Intel® processors come with features many developers may not be aware of. One of these features is on-die Intel® Graphics, providing enhanced visual and parallel computing capabilities. This video shows how to deploy the Intel® Graphics compute runtime for the OpenCL™ driver on CentOS* 7.5, enabling enhanced support for the Open Visual Inference & Neural Network Optimization (OpenVINO™) toolkit, other Intel SDK’s, as well as other accelerated applications. The OpenCL™ driver enables parallel programming of heterogeneous systems applications in numerous market categories including gaming and entertainment titles, scientific and medical software, professional creative tools, vision processing, and neural network training and inferencing. With this video you’ll:

  • Walkthrough the fundamentals of prerequisites, build, and deployment contents to better understand how to distribute your applications targeting Intel Graphics
  • Observe some common deployment issues and how to mitigate them
  • Learn where to go for further information
