oneAPI State of the Union

The oneAPI ecosystem continues to grow and gain traction. Hear how the ecosystem is expanding and how users are taking advantage of the power of oneAPI. See demos of real-world solutions from companies like Beewant and Weaviate*, as well as impactful open source projects like Ginkgo and more. Understand how the community and industry is extending its support of oneAPI through its implementation of the open standard. Learn what oneAPI is, future plans for it, and how you can contribute and influence the oneAPI standard and solutions to maximize value for you, the developer.


Tony Mongkolsmai is a software architect and technical evangelist at Intel. He has 20 years of industry experience designing, implementing, and leading production grade software solutions. Tony was a lead architect for Intel’s performance tools team, and also led an engineering team that designed and implemented a cloud-native, scale-out AI data center for Intel. He also was part of the group that successfully proposed the creation of a Sustainability Technical Advisory Group for the Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF).

Sebastian Witalec is the head of Developer Relations at Weaviate. He loves working on serious and fun projects, and one day he will use his robot army to conquer the world. He is always happy to learn new stuff and to pass the knowledge as far as his voice (or the wire) can take him. Sebastian is based in Copenhagen, actively working with various developer communities across Europe. When not acting techie, he is a massive football fan and player (probably bigger at heart than in skills).

Ahmed Joudad is the founder of Beewant, a data platform that provides high-quality training data to companies building AI applications. He spent most of his career working for a global provider of financial market data and infrastructure. He’s always had a passion for technology, particularly AI and machine learning. Ahmed believes that the key to unlocking the full potential of AI is to provide companies with clean, accurate data that would enable their algorithms to learn and improve.
