Kickstarting the Transition to Parallel Computing With Open Hardware - Andreas Olofsson, CEO at Adapteva

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Massively parallel computing will become truly ubiquitous once the vast majority of programmers and programs know how to take full advantage of the underlying hardware. Unfortunately this is easier said than done: Making parallel computing easy to use has been described as "a problem as hard as any that computer science has faced". With such big challenges ahead, we need to make sure that every programmer has access to cheap and open parallel hardware and development tools. For this reason, Adapteva launched the Parallella open hardware platform with the goal of democratizing access to parallel computing. In this talk, Andreas Olofsson CEO at Adapteva will present the Parallella computing platform and some of the positive developments that have come about as a result of taking an open approach to hardware.
