Taking part in the Unified Acceleration (UXL) Foundation is an opportunity to build a multi-architecture multi-vendor software ecosystem for all accelerators - and unify the heterogeneous compute ecosystem around open standards - through active collaboration with industry leaders and experts.

The Unified Acceleration Foundation is an evolution of the oneAPI initiative and focuses on the development of specifications and open source projects through Working Groups (WGs) - Specification, Open Source, and Special Interest Groups (SIGs) - Language, Math, AI, Hardware, Image.

As a member, you are invited to participate in the Working Group meetings, and co-develop the oneAPI Specification. Check the repo for details.
