My sense of the first release

The interpreter seems to function correctly with scheduling and vectorized memory management. Now it’s back to the OpenCL JIT.
My sense of the first release:
- PeakStream API and managed platform
- OpenCL JIT built around high throughput auto-tuned matrix multiply
- useful random number generation on the GPU
- user documentation
The specific application domains I have in mind are: business analytics, forecasting and options pricing. I have experience of the first two with Amazon’s retail supply chain. The last one is just too important to ignore.
