Parallel Computation

One of main recent computing trends is that CPU and GPU improve their performance by increasing the number of cores on a chip instead of increasing clock frequency. As a result, it is critical to utilize such multi-cores to handle large-scale models and get benefits from hardware advance.

Particularly, we have been working on designing various techniques utilizing heterogeneous computing resource including CPUs and GPUs. It is very important to respect different characteristics of CPUs and GPU, and to design algorithms given those characteristics.
