AbstractCurrent and future expectations from AI are very challenging, and significant advances has been made in the topic. Powerful AI methods (e.g., Deep Learning) and large-scale datasets (e.g., massive networks) processing are computationally expensive, hence the need for high performance computing.
The aim of this PhD is to investigate systematic approaches to reach HPC implementation of important AI kernels considering both standard and specific devices. Precisely, shared memory parallelism on multicore processors and accelerated computing with GPUs will be the main considerations.
