Accelerated Computing: "Early Experiences In Porting Depth Imaging Applications on Intel MIC Architecture," Asma Farjallah, University of Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines


Watch the video

As we are moving towards the Exascale level of performance, challenges on the hardware and the software levels are becoming more acute, imposing constraints on both architects and developers. Rethinking the way we express parallelism and consequently the way we develop applications
considering a relevant architectural context is a first step in the co-design process. Intel Many-Integrated Cores (MIC) architecture represents an interesting opportunity to study the impact of this new architectural tendency on the existing applications in Oil and Gas industry.
