Automatic Scan Parallelization in OpenMP

Prefix Scan (or simply scan) is an operator that computes all the partial sums of a vector. A scan operation results in a vector where each element is the sum of the preceding elements in the original vector up to the corresponding position. Scan is a key operation in many relevant problems like sorting, lexical […]

An efficient GPU algorithm for tetrahedron-based Brillouin-zone integration

We report an efficient algorithm for calculating momentum-space integrals in solid state systems on modern graphics processing units (GPUs). We extend the tetrahedron method by Bl"ochl et al.~to the more general case of the integration of a momentum as well as energy dependent quantity and implement the algorithm based on the CUDA programming framework. We […]

On Pre-Trained Image Features and Synthetic Images for Deep Learning

Deep Learning methods usually require huge amounts of training data to perform at their full potential, and often require expensive manual labeling. Using synthetic images is therefore very attractive to train object detectors, as the labeling comes for free, and several approaches have been proposed to combine synthetic and real images for training. In this […]

Performance optimizations for scalable CFD applications on hybrid CPU+MIC heterogeneous computing system with millions of cores

For computational fluid dynamics (CFD) applications with a large number of grid points/cells, parallel computing is a common efficient strategy to reduce the computational time. How to achieve the best performance in the modern supercomputer system, especially with heterogeneous computing resources such as hybrid CPU+GPU, or a CPU + Intel Xeon Phi (MIC) co-processors, is […]

A Study of Time and Energy Efficient Algorithms for Parallel and Heterogeneous Computing

This PhD project is motivated by the need to develop and achieve better and energy efficient computing through the use of parallelism and heterogeneous systems. Our contribution consists of both theoretical aspects, as well as in-depth and comprehensive empirical studies that aim to provide more insight into parallel and heterogeneous computing. Our first problem is […]

Early Results of Deep Learning on the Stampede2 Supercomputer

We present early results of the deep learning work on the Stampede2 supercomputer. Our goal is to enable scalable and efficient deep learning model training and serving to expedite scientific discovery. We build three popular deep learning frameworks, namely, IntelCaffe, MXNet, and TensorFlow. With the built-in applications of these frameworks (CaffeNet, AlexNet, GoogLeNet, and Cifar10), […]

Hybrid Fortran: High Productivity GPU Porting Framework Applied to Japanese Weather Prediction Model

In this work we use the GPU porting task for the operative Japanese weather prediction model "ASUCA" as an opportunity to examine productivity issues with OpenACC when applied to structured grid problems. We then propose "Hybrid Fortran", an approach that combines the advantages of directive based methods (no rewrite of existing code necessary) with that […]

GooFit 2.0

The GooFit package provides physicists a simple, familiar syntax for manipulating probability density functions and performing fits, and is highly optimized for data analysis on NVIDIA GPUs and multithreaded CPU backends. GooFit was updated to version 2.0, bringing a host of new features. A completely revamped and redesigned build system makes GooFit easier to install, […]

Strategy Preserving Compilation for Parallel Functional Code

Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and other parallel devices are widely available and have the potential for accelerating a wide class of algorithms. However, expert programming skills are required to achieving maximum performance. hese devices expose low-level hardware details through imperative programming interfaces where programmers explicity encode device-specific optimisation strategies. This inevitably results in non-performance-portable programs […]

Deep Voice 3: 2000-Speaker Neural Text-to-Speech

We present Deep Voice 3, a fully-convolutional attention-based neural text-to-speech (TTS) system. Deep Voice 3 matches state-of-the-art neural speech synthesis systems in naturalness while training ten times faster. We scale Deep Voice 3 to data set sizes unprecedented for TTS, training on more than eight hundred hours of audio from over two thousand speakers. In […]

BENCHIP: Benchmarking Intelligence Processors

The increasing attention on deep learning has tremendously spurred the design of intelligence processing hardware. The variety of emerging intelligence processors requires standard benchmarks for fair comparison and system optimization (in both software and hardware). However, existing benchmarks are unsuitable for benchmarking intelligence processors due to their non-diversity and nonrepresentativeness. Also, the lack of a […]

A Fast and Generic GPU-Based Parallel Reduction Implementation

Reduction operations are extensively employed in many computational problems. A reduction consists of, given a finite set of numeric elements, combining into a single value all elements in that set, using for this a combiner function. A parallel reduction, in turn, is the reduction operation concurrently performed when multiple execution units are available. The current […]
