The core objective of the Kompute project is to contribute to and further the GPU computing ecosystem across both scientific and industry applications, through cross-vendor graphics card tooling and capabilities. We have seen very positive reception and adoption of Kompute across various development communities, including advanced data processing use-cases in mobile applications, game development engines, edge device and cloud, and we look forward for the Kompute community to serve as a platform to empower the discourse on topics related to GPU acceleration for cross-industry applications.
The Kompute project has also received very positive reception across multiple talks at Open Source conferences including CppCon 2021, for which the video is now published in youtube which resulted in a fast growth in viewership, and has had a positive effect in growth in the number of Github stars – now surpassing over 750. Finally, the Kompute project has also seen an increase in contributors, as well as community interactions through an increase in number of issues and pull-requests. As part of the next phase of growth of the Kompute project, they are looking to build towards a stable GA 1.0 APIs that will provide long-term stable and maintained interfaces towards the graduation of the project.
Alejandro Saucedo, Chief Scientist at The Institute for Ethical AI & Machine Learning, said: “Many advanced machine learning and deep learning paradigms fit incredibly well to the parallel architecture that GPU computing offers, and exciting advancements in the open source ecosystem such as the Kompute Project are enabling developers to take advantage of GPU acceleration in cross-vendor mobile, desktop, cloud and edge applications. We are thrilled to see the growth and maturity of the Kompute project since joining the Linux Foundation, and we are excited for its next phase of growth towards graduation. We believe the Linux Foundation is the right platform to encourage and empower the cross-industry discourse required to further the GPU acceleration ecosystem.”
