Bolt: Bridging the Gap between Auto-tuners and Hardware-native Performance

Today’s auto-tuners (e.g., AutoTVM, Ansor) generate efficient tensor programs by navigating a large search space to identify effective implementations, but they do so with opaque hardware details. Thus, their performance could fall behind that of hardware-native libraries (e.g., cuBLAS, cuDNN), which are hand-optimized by device vendors to extract high performance. On the other hand, these […]

The CoRa Tensor Compiler: Compilation for Ragged Tensors with Minimal Padding

There is often variation in the shape and size of input data used for deep learning. In many cases, such data can be represented using tensors with non-uniform shapes, or ragged tensors. Due to limited and non-portable support for efficient execution on ragged tensors, current deep learning frameworks generally use techniques such as padding and […]

Principal Kernel Analysis: A Tractable Methodology to Simulate Scaled GPU Workloads

Simulating all threads in a scaled GPU workload results in prohibitive simulation cost. Cycle-level simulation is orders of magnitude slower than native silicon, the only solution is to reduce the amount of work simulated while accurately representing the program. Existing solutions to simulate GPU programs either scale the input size, simulate the first several billion […]

Monitoring Collective Communication Among GPUs

Communication among devices in multi-GPU systems plays an important role in terms of performance and scalability. In order to optimize an application, programmers need to know the type and amount of the communication happening among GPUs. Although there are prior works to gather this information in MPI applications on distributed systems and multi-threaded applications on […]

OMB-Py: Python Micro-Benchmarks for Evaluating Performance of MPI Libraries on HPC Systems

Python has become a dominant programming language for emerging areas like Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), and Data Science (DS). An attractive feature of Python is that it provides easy-to-use programming interface while allowing library developers to enhance performance of their applications by harnessing the computing power offered by High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms. […]

Least Squares on GPUs in Multiple Double Precision

This paper describes the application of the code generated by the CAMPARY software to accelerate the solving of linear systems in the least squares sense on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), in double double, quad double, and octo double precision. The goal is to use accelerators to offset the cost overhead caused by multiple double precision […]

Homomorphic-Encrypted Volume Rendering

Computationally demanding tasks are typically calculated in dedicated data centers, and real-time visualizations also follow this trend. Some rendering tasks, however, require the highest level of confidentiality so that no other party, besides the owner, can read or see the sensitive data. Here we present a direct volume rendering approach that performs volume rendering directly […]

Accelerating LBM on a Tightly-Coupled Field Programmable Gate Array

With the end of Dennard Scaling and the imminent end of Moore’s Law, the search for new ways to improve performance in computing systems is increasing. Nowadays, the main approach is to use hardware accelerations to offload the application. However, while this is a power-efficient approach, their development process is costly and time-consuming. In this […]

Accelerating AutoDock VINA with GPUs

AutoDock VINA is one of the most-used docking tools in the early stage of modern drug discovery. It uses a Monte-Carlo based iterated search method and multithreading parallelism scheme on multicore machines to improve docking accuracy and speed. However, virtual screening from huge compound databases is common for modern drug discovery, which puts forward a […]

Beyond Desktop Computation: Challenges in Scaling a GPU Infrastructure

Enterprises and labs performing computationally expensive data science applications sooner or later face the problem of scale but unconnected infrastructure. For this up-scaling process, an IT service provider can be hired or in-house personnel can attempt to implement a software stack. The first option can be quite expensive if it is just about connecting several […]

AsymML: An Asymmetric Decomposition Framework for Privacy-Preserving DNN Training and Inference

Leveraging parallel hardware (e.g. GPUs) to conduct deep neural network (DNN) training/inference, though significantly speeds up the computations, raises several data privacy concerns. Trusted execution environments (TEEs) have emerged as a promising solution to enable privacy-preserving inference and training. TEEs, however, have limited memory and computation resources which renders it not comparable to untrusted parallel […]
