Title: A Not So Simple Matter of Software
Speaker: Prof. Jack Dongarra, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
When: 27. Mai 2022, 11:40 (CEST)
Where: Maschinenhaus, TU Darmstadt, and via live-streaming
In this talk we will look at some of the changes that have occurred in high performance computing and the impact that is having on how our algorithms and software libraries are designed for our high-end computers. For nearly forty years, Moore’s Law produced exponential growth in hardware performance, and during that same time, most software failed to keep pace with these hardware advances. We will look at some of the algorithmic and software changes that have tried to keep up with the advances in the hardware.
