Enhancing User Experience: Krita Application Utilizing Multiple Cores on Intel® Architecture Platforms

Multiple cores and Intel HT Technology significantly improve the performance of processor-intensive computations. A performance gain of 4.37X is achieved when an animation is rendered using all cores in a 6Core system with Intel HT Technology turned on, compared to rendering the animation on one core. This visible and measurable performance gain translates to reduced waiting times by Krita...

Vitruvian Game Wingsuit—VR Automation

Through virtual reality and an electronically controlled mechanism, the wingsuit flight simulator calls to mind the Vitruvian Man of Leonardo da Vinci. The user controls the flight with a joystick and wears a backpack that wirelessly (thanks to the battery) creates virtual reality. You can fly anywhere for a unique experience. The engines, in full security, allow the person to move like a...

Optimizing the User Experience of VR Games on IA for e-Sports

VR, as a new form of interaction between humans and the virtual world, is able to immerse users by making them feel like they are experiencing the simulated reality. However, it’s not easy to achieve considering the frame rendering budget for VR is 11.1ms per frame (90fps), and you need to render the entire scene twice (once for each eye). In this session, we’ll focus on both performance and user...

Get Started With Unity* Machine Learning Using Intel® Distribution for Python* (Part 1)

This article will show game developers how to use reinforcement learning to create better artificial intelligence (AI) behavior. Using Intel® Distribution for Python—an improved version of the popular object-oriented, high-level programming language—readers will glean how to train pre-existing machine-language (ML) agents to learn and adapt. In this scenario, we will use Intel® Optimization for...
