Intel's engineering leaders recently provided an update on their software project “One API”. The goal is to deliver a unified programming model to simplify application development across diverse computing architectures.

As the workloads become more diverse, so do architectures that process that data. Intel’s breadth of architectures span scalar (CPU), vector (GPU), matrix (AI) and spatial (FPGA). These architectures, referred with the acronym SVMS, require an efficient software programming model to deliver performance. One API addresses this with ease-of-use and performance, while eliminating the need to maintain separate code bases, multiple programming languages, and different tools and workflows.

“One API is a project to deliver a set of developer tools that provide a unified programming model that simplifies development for workloads across diverse architectures. As our breadth of compute has grown to include specialized accelerators, Intel will deliver software solutions that allow developers to get the full performance out of the hardware,” said Bill Savage, vice president and general manager of Compute Performance Developer Products, Intel.

One API will support direct programming and API programming, and will deliver a unified language and libraries that offer full native code performance across a range of hardware, including CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs and AI accelerators. Intel will release a developer beta and additional details on the project in the fourth quarter of 2019.
