there are so many cores

Just another site

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:

  1. PeakStream API and managed platform
  2. OpenCL JIT built around high throughput auto-tuned matrix multiply
  3. useful random number generation on the GPU
  4. 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.
