A Deep Dive Education in Parallel Computing – Tutorial

In today’s unprecedented digital age, people are expecting a magic box to solve complex tasks. Almost every application in day-to-day lives, be it social media, digital marketing, agriculture or transportation, is assisted by machine learning, scientific visualization and analytics. The applications should execute in real time and respond on the fly. Undoubtedly, parallel computing is the magic!

This tutorial aims to take the participants through the realm of Parallel Computing Technologies. The present decade is witnessing a sea change in processor architectures; while the applications are becoming more demanding in their compute and memory requirements. Computer technology has emerged from multicore to many core processors, to accelerator based systems and special purpose machines, which are capable of real time processing of very complex tasks. This tutorial intends to provide a deep dive into the extensive domain of high performance computing – hardware, software, algorithms, programming models and applications.

The tutorial will cover –

  • State-of-the-art computer architectures including multicore, many-core, accelerators, GPUs, and HPC systems
  • Programming techniques
  • Applications – use cases, scaling and comparison

The tutorial will provide an immersive experience to the participants with a blend of theory and demos, so that the participants attain the confidence to jump start with parallel computing. This tutorial will be extremely beneficial to researchers, academicians, scientists, engineers, application developers, who want to thrive in the modern digital economy.
Takeaways!

  • Academicians can jump start state-of-the-art courses
  • Developers can derive better techniques for their applications
  • Enterprise Leaders can gain an understanding of emerging technologies
