Print Friendly, PDF & Email


In this video, Michael Wolfe from The Portland Group discusses heterogeneous programming for HPC.


  • What’s the distinction between heterogeneous computing and heterogeneous programming?
  • Why is heterogeneous programming hard?
  • What’s the right level of abstraction for heterogeneous programming?
  • What are the existing methods for heterogeneous programming? Do they really solve this problem?
  • What heterogeneous systems are likely to survive in HPC?

Wolfe recently became a guest contributor on insideHPC and we’re looking forward to more discussions in the coming months.
