Podcast: John Gustafson on What’s Next for Parallel Computing

In this podcast from Radio New Zealand, John Gustafson from the A*STAR Agency for Science, Technology and Research discusses parallelism and high performance computing. Gustafson is the father of Gustafson’s Law, which gives the theoretical speedup in latency of the execution of a task at fixed execution time that can be expected of a system whose resources are improved.

Balancing Amdahl’s Law vs. Gustafson-Barsis’ Law

The two laws of parallel performance quantify strong versus weak scalability and illustrate the balancing act that is parallel optimization.
