Building Fast Data Compression Code with Intel Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel IPP) 2018

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel IPP) is a highly optimized, production-ready, library for lossless data compression/decompression targeting image, signal, and data processing, and cryptography applications. Intel IPP includes more than 2,500 image processing, 1,300 signal processing, 500 computer vision, and 300 cryptography optimized functions for creating digital media, enterprise data, embedded, communications, and scientific, technical, and security applications.

Parallel Multiway Methods for Compression of Massive Data and Other Applications

Tamara Kolda from Sandia gave this Invited Talk at SC16. “Scientists are drowning in data. The scientific data produced by high-fidelity simulations and high-precision experiments are far too massive to store. For instance, a modest simulation on a 3D grid with 500 grid points per dimension, tracking 100 variables for 100 time steps yields 5TB of data. Working with this massive data is unwieldy and it may not be retained for future analysis or comparison. Data compression is a necessity, but there are surprisingly few options available for scientific data.”
