30 June 2015
Mauricio, a postdoc researcher at Prof. B. Juurlink’s group at the TU Berlin, visited the chair for compiler construction. He works at the “Embedded Systems Architectures” group, in topics ranging from low-power embedded systems to massively parallel high-performance systems. Mauricio gave a talk where he addressed the challenges of mapping today’s video codecs to modern architectures, including SIMD instruction and GPUs. He discussed the gap between manual and auto-vectorized code for today’s video applications.
