Intel strongly supports cross-platform technologies and embraces HTML5 as a major step toward transparent computing. In this talk, we will present some exciting results from Intel’s ongoing joint work with Google and Mozilla on bringing high performance SIMD programming to JavaScript. SIMD in JavaScript enables development of high performance web apps including game engines and apps that require efficient image/video/speech processing, all within the realm of JavaScript. We will also cover the portable Crosswalk HTML5 application runtime and Intel’s cross-platform development kit (Intel XDK) that increases developers’ efficiency by lowering the development costs of web apps and hybrid HTML5 apps for all major app stores.

This session will be sponsored by Intel
