Dr. Kelly A. Shawn will present: “High Performance on Modern Graphics Processors" Dr. Shaw is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the University of Richmond. Her main areas of interest are Computer Architecture, Heterogeneous Multiprocessors, GPGPUs, and Workload Characterizations.
Abstract of Dr. Shaw's talk on High Performance on Modern Graphics Processors"
The computing landscape is changing rapidly with different types of processors and different combinations of processors being put in new systems. It's an exciting time to be a computer scientist! Figuring out how best to use these new resources is a big challenge. This talk will discuss the tools developed by Shaw and her collaborators to gain insights into the opportunities and challenges encountered when trying to obtain high performance on modern graphics processors. New hardware and software techniques developed based on those insights will also be discussed.
Pizza and drinks will be provided courtesy of the Computer Science Department.
