PPOpenCL: a performance-portable OpenCL compiler with host and kernel thread code fusion

OpenCL offers code portability but no performance portability. Given an OpenCL program X specifically written for one platform P, existing OpenCL compilers, which usually optimize its host and kernel codes individually, often yield poor performance for another platform Q. Instead of obtaining a performance-improved version of X for Q via manual tuning, we aim to […]

A Case Study: Exploiting Neural Machine Translation to Translate CUDA to OpenCL

The sequence-to-sequence (seq2seq) model for neural machine translation has significantly improved the accuracy of language translation. There have been new efforts to use this seq2seq model for program language translation or program comparisons. In this work, we present the detailed steps of using a seq2seq model to translate CUDA programs to OpenCL programs, which both […]

Accelerating Deterministic and Stochastic Binarized Neural Networks on FPGAs Using OpenCL

Recent technological advances have proliferated the available computing power, memory, and speed of modern Central Processing Units (CPUs), Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). Consequently, the performance and complexity of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) is burgeoning. While GPU accelerated Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) currently offer state-of-the-art performance, they consume large amounts […]

Compressed Learning of Deep Neural Networks for OpenCL-Capable Embedded Systems

Deep neural networks (DNNs) have been quite successful in solving many complex learning problems. However, DNNs tend to have a large number of learning parameters, leading to a large memory and computation requirement. In this paper, we propose a model compression framework for efficient training and inference of deep neural networks on embedded systems. Our […]

Transparent Acceleration for Heterogeneous Platforms With Compilation to OpenCL

Multi-accelerator platforms combine CPUs and different accelerator architectures within a single compute node. Such systems are capable of processing parallel workloads very efficiently while being more energy efficient than regular systems consisting of CPUs only. However, the architectures of such systems are diverse, forcing developers to port applications to each accelerator using different programming languages, […]

Accelerated Neural Networks on OpenCL Devices Using SYCL-DNN

Over the past few years machine learning has seen a renewed explosion of interest, following a number of studies showing the effectiveness of neural networks in a range of tasks which had previously been considered incredibly hard. Neural networks’ effectiveness in the fields of image recognition and natural language processing stems primarily from the vast […]

OpenCL vs: Accelerated Finite-Difference Digital Synthesis

Digital audio synthesis has become an important component of modern music production with techniques that can produce realistic simulations of real instruments. Physical modelling sound synthesis is a category of audio synthesis that uses mathematical models to emulate the physical phenomena of acoustic musical instruments including drum membranes, air columns and strings. The synthesis of […]

The Study of the OpenCL Processing Models for the FPGA Devices

In our study, we present the results of the implementation of the SHA-512 algorithm in FPGAs. The distinguished element of our work is that we conducted the work using OpenCL for FPGA, which is a relatively new development method for reconfigurable logic. We examine loop unrolling as an OpenCL performance optimization method and compare the […]

Accelerating ternary quantized convolutional neural networks using OpenCL for FPGA

FPGAs balance the reprogammability of CPUs and the performance of ASICs. They seem the perfect solution to increase the throughput of neural networks. However they must also prove to be highly competitive in a market dominated by GPUs. To achieve this, we focus on the strength of FPGAs that cannot be taken advantage of on […]

An Empirically Guided Optimization Framework for FPGA OpenCL

FPGAs have been demonstrated to be capable of very high performance, especially power-performance, but generally at the cost of hand-tuned HDL code by FPGA experts. OpenCL is the leading industry effort in improving performance-programmability. But while it is recognized that optimizing OpenCL code using published best practices is critical to achieving good performance, even optimized […]

AXC: A new format to perform the SpMV oriented to Intel Xeon Phi architecture in OpenCL

Emerging new architectures used in High Performance Computing require new research to adapt and optimise algorithms to them.As part of this effort, we propose the newAXC format to improve the performance of the SpMV product for the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor. The performance of the OpenCL kernel, based on our new format, is compared with […]

Exploring FPGA-specific Optimizations for Irregular OpenCL Applications

OpenCL is emerging as a high-level hardware description language to address the productivity challenges of developing applications on FPGAs. Unlike traditional hardware description languages (HDLs), OpenCL provides an abstract interface to facilitate high productivity, enabling end users to rapidly describe the required computations, including parallelism and data movement, to create custom hardware accelerators for their […]
