Parallella University Program to Bring Parallel Computing to Higher Education

Adapteva today introduced its Parallella University Program (PUP) for parallel programing research and/or education. Designed so universities can access inexpensive and open parallel computing hardware, the PUP program provides free hardware and developmental software specifically focused on parallel computing. The first offering via the PUP program will be the Parallella-16 computer, Adapteva’s Kickstarter-funded credit-card sized multicore processing platform. Adapteva is donating one Parallella-16 platform for each 100 units sold via the company’s online store. The present and future of computing is clearly...

Corelets – A New Paradigm for Cognitive Computing

Over at the Smarter Planet Blog, Dharmendra S. Modha writes that, just as Fortran powered the last 60 years of scientific computing, the coming era will be powered by Cognitive Computing that gathers huge quantities of data, reasons over the data, and learns from interactions with information and people. To make this possible, he contends that scientists will have to re-architect nearly every aspect of computing and develop an all-new programming paradigm. Enter the corelet model. It’s a high-level description of a software program that is based on re-usable building blocks of code—the corelets. Each corelet represents a method...

Video: Trends in Next Generation HPC Architecture

In this video, Andrew Siegel from Argonne National Laboratory presents: Trends in Next Generation HPC Architecture. It is well known that the design of next generation HPC systems requires architectural choices that leave application developers in a largely unfamiliar parameter regime relative to the trends of the past twenty years — overall levels of concurrency, bandwidth to FLOP/s ratios, memory per floating point unit, use of instruction-level and shared-memory parallelism, power, and resilience characteristics are a few common examples. While constrained to some degree by the technology, in designing future...

Argonne Releases More Details on Argo OS for Exascale

As first reported here on insideHPC last week, Argonne National Laboratory is working on a prototype Exascale operating system called Argo. This week, Argonne announced it has been awarded a $9.75 million grant from the DOE Office of Science to lead this multi-institutional research project. In Greek mythology, Argo (which means “swift”) was the ship used by Jason in his quest for the Golden Fleece. “We chose the project name Argo because it exemplifies several characteristics of our approach,” said Pete Beckman, director of the Exascale Technology and Computing...
