In this video from the 2016 Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing, James Reinders presents: SIMD, Vectorization, and Performance Tuning.

The Argonne Training Program on Extreme-Scale Computing (ATPESC) provides intensive, two-week training on the key skills, approaches, and tools to design, implement, and execute computational science and engineering applications on current high-end computing systems and the leadership-class computing systems of the future. As a bridge to that future, this two-week program fills the gap that exists in the training computational scientists typically receive through formal education or other shorter courses.

Reinders is the author of multiple books on parallel programming. His most recent book, entitled Intel Xeon Phi Processor High Performance Programming: Knights Landing Edition 2nd Edition, was co-authored by James Jeffers and Avinash Sodani.

“James Render is a parallel programming enthusiast. He has been involved in multiple engineering, research and educational efforts to increase use of parallel programming throughout the industry. James worked 10,001 days as an Intel employee 1989-2016, and contributed to numerous projects including the world’s first TeraFLOP/s supercomputer (ASCI Red), first 3 TeraFLOP/s supercomputer (ASCI Red upgrade), the world’s first TeraFLOP/s microprocessor (Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor) and the world’s first 3 TeraFLOP/s microprocessor (Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processor). knightslandingJames been an author on numerous technical books, including VTune™ Performance Analyzer Essentials (Intel Press, 2005), Intel® Threading Building Blocks (O’Reilly Media, 2007), Structured Parallel Programming (Morgan Kaufmann, 2012), Intel® Xeon Phi™ Coprocessor High Performance Programming (Morgan Kaufmann, 2013), Multithreading for Visual Effects (A K Peters/CRC Press, 2014), High Performance Parallelism Pearls Volume 1 (Morgan Kaufmann, Nov. 2014), High Performance Parallelism Pearls Volume 2 (Morgan Kaufmann, Aug. 2015), and Intel® Xeon Phi™ Processor High Performance Programming – Knights Landing Edition (Morgan Kaufmann, 2016).”
