In this video, Rafael Asenjo from the University of Malaga presents: Main Benefits of Task Parallel Frameworks.

In this talk we will address several task parallel frameworks, like Intel Threading Building Blocks (TBB), Open MP 3.0, and Cilk, to name a few. We will also show some experimental results in the context of pipeline and wave-front parallel algorithms for which we have obtained significant performance improvements by rewriting the pthread version of the codes so as to rely on TBB. As an extra benefit, TBB also provides high level templates in order to improve the code development productivity.
