In this video, Dr. Umit Catalyurek from Georgia Institute of Technology presents: Modern Computing: Cloud, Distributed, & High Performance.
“This lecture will be a brief crash course on computer architecture, high performance computing and parallel computing. We will, again very briefly, discuss how to classify computer architectures and applications, and what to look in applications to achieve best performance on different architectures.”
