Intel has launched the oneAPI “industry initiative” to deliver a unified and open programming experience to developers on any architecture.

The initiative is expected to deliver this without compromising performance and eliminating the complexity of separate code bases, multiple-programming languages, and different tools and workflows.

According to the vendor, oneAPI represents millions of Intel engineering hours in software development and marks a game-changing evolution from today’s limiting, proprietary programming approaches to an open, standards-based model for cross-architecture developer engagement and innovation.

Intel claims the ability to program across diverse architectures is critical in supporting data-centric workloads where multiple architectures are required and will become the future norm.

oneAPI includes an industry initiative based on open specifications including a direct programming language, powerful APIs and a low-level hardware interface. This includes a cross-architecture language, Data Parallel C++ (DPC++) for direct programming, together with a set of libraries for API-based programming and a low-level interface to hardware, oneAPI Level Zero.
