Ho Minh Quan : Journey to an optimized BLAS-like library on the Kalray MPPA-256 manycore processor

Jeudi 14 Septembre 2017

Title : Journey to an optimized BLAS-like library on the Kalray MPPA-256 manycore processor.



Abstract:

In the first part of this talk, we will present the Kalray MPPA manycore architecture and resume

experiences on writing and optimizing the general matrix-matrix multiplication (GEMM) operation

on the processor. The second part shows the importance of having standard optimized libraries

on computing architectures and the difficulties of doing such procedure. We then talk about BLIS

as a nice way to instantiate BLAS for any platform, and step-by-step the porting and optimization

approaches of BLIS on MPPA, as well as how to re-apply these on other platforms.
