BrainFrame: A heterogeneous accelerator platform for neuron simulations

OBJECTIVE: The advent of High-Performance Computing (HPC) in recent years has led to its increasing use in brain study through computational models. The scale and complexity of such models are constantly increasing, leading to challenging computational requirements. Even though modern HPC platforms can often deal with such challenges, the vast diversity of the modeling field […]

Brownian Dynamics of Active Sphere Suspensions Confined Near a No-Slip Boundary

We develop numerical methods for performing efficient Brownian dynamics of colloidal suspensions confined to remain in the vicinity of a no-slip wall by gravity or active flows. We present a stochastic Adams-Bashforth integrator for the Brownian dynamic equations, which is second-order accurate deterministically and uses a random finite difference to capture the stochastic drift proportional […]

Parallelization and Performance of the NIM Weather Model for CPU, GPU and MIC Processors

The design and performance of the NIM global weather prediction model is described. NIM was designed to run on GPU and MIC processors. It demonstrates efficient parallel performance and scalability to tens of thousands of compute nodes, and has been an effective way to make comparisons between traditional CPU and emerging fine-grain processors. Design of […]

A Comparison of GPU Execution Time Prediction using Machine Learning and Analytical Modeling

Today, most high-performance computing (HPC) platforms have heterogeneous hardware resources (CPUs, GPUs, storage, etc.) A Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is a parallel computing coprocessor specialized in accelerating vector operations. The prediction of application execution times over these devices is a great challenge and is essential for efficient job scheduling. There are different approaches to do […]

ESE: Efficient Speech Recognition Engine with Compressed LSTM on FPGA

Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) is widely used in speech recognition. In order to achieve higher prediction accuracy, machine learning scientists have built larger and larger models. Such large model is both computation intensive and memory intensive. Deploying such bulky model results in high power consumption and leads to high total cost of ownership (TCO) of […]

GPU-accelerated algorithms for many-particle continuous-time quantum walks

Many-particle continuous-time quantum walks (CTQWs) represent a resource for several tasks in quantum technology, including quantum search algorithms and universal quantum computation. In order to design and implement CTQWs in a realistic scenario, one needs effective simulation tools for Hamiltonians that take into account static noise and fluctuations in the lattice, i.e. Hamiltonians containing stochastic […]

OpenACC cache Directive: Opportunities and Optimizations

OpenACC’s programming model presents a simple interface to programmers, offering a trade-off between performance and development effort. OpenACC relies on compiler technologies to generate efficient code and optimize for performance. Among the difficult to implement directives, is the cache directive. The cache directive allows the programmer to utilize accelerator’s hardware- or software-managed caches by passing […]

Accelerating string tokenization with FPGAs for IoT data handling equipment

This paper reports on the results of a study to accelerate string tokenization using FPGAs suitable for both IoT gateways and data center servers. The prototype developed with Xilinx High-Level Synthesis software runs at 200 MHz and processes up to 32 ASCII characters per clock cycle. It incorporates either OpenCL or our own framework (Volvox) […]

Should I use TensorFlow?

Google’s Machine Learning framework TensorFlow was open-sourced in November 2015 [1] and has since built a growing community around it. TensorFlow is supposed to be flexible for research purposes while also allowing its models to be deployed productively. This work is aimed towards people with experience in Machine Learning considering whether they should use TensorFlow […]

GeantV: from CPU to accelerators

The GeantV project aims to research and develop the next-generation simulation software describing the passage of particles through matter. While the modern CPU architectures are being targeted first, resources such as GPGPU, Intel© Xeon Phi, Atom or ARM cannot be ignored anymore by HEP CPU-bound applications. The proof of concept GeantV prototype has been mainly […]

A Real-time Single Pulse Detection Algorithm for GPUs

The detection of non-repeating events in the radio spectrum has become an important area of study in radio astronomy over the last decade due to the discovery of fast radio bursts (FRBs). We have implemented a single pulse detection algorithm, for NVIDIA GPUs, which use boxcar filters of varying widths. Our code performs the calculation […]

Hardware thread reordering to boost OpenCL throughput on FPGAs

Availability of OpenCL for FPGAs has raised new questions about the efficiency of massive thread-level parallelism on FPGAs. The general trend is toward creating deep pipelining and in-order execution of many OpenCL threads across a shared data-path. While this can be a very effective approach for regular kernels, its efficiency significantly diminishes for irregular kernels […]
