The University of Bristol has announced a collaboration with Intel to develop parallel algorithms and optimize HPC applications for the Intel Xeon Phi. These Intel Parallel Computing Centers (IPCCs) are being established with leading high performance computing (HPC) research groups worldwide in order to directly combat the challenge of using modern computer systems more efficiently.
I’m delighted Intel has chosen to partner with the University of Bristol for its first IPCC in the UK. Our HPC group is a world leader in optimising parallel algorithms for very parallel architectures, such as the many-core Intel Xeon Phi Coprocessors, and we are recognised as champions of open standards for parallel programming including OpenMP and OpenCL. We will also be collaborating in HPC training, and will leverage Bristol’s exciting undergraduate and masters course in high performance computing.
Joe Curley, Director of Marketing for Technical Computing Group at Intel Corporation, added: “The University of Bristol combines both a demonstrated ability to innovate and optimize parallel applications using open, industry-standard techniques with a focus on practical education of the next generation of application developers.”
