Blazing a Trail in DPC++

Epistasis detection holds great promise for the prevention and treatment of diseases such as Alzheimer’s, diabetes and breast cancer. INESC-ID researchers Aleksander Ilic and Rafael Torres Campos are collaborating with other researchers and developers across Portugal through the HiPErBio Project to advance the precision and efficiency of epistasis detection, using oneAPI DevCloud, Intel CPUs and Intel GPUs, such as the Intel® Iris® Xe MAX. Rafael shares his experiences in porting bioinformatics applications from OpenCL to DPC++ to target multiple hardware architectures, the speedups he achieved and some surprises along the way. Guests: Aleksander Ilic, Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, IST University of Lisbon, and Senior Researcher, HPC Architectures & Systems Group, INESC-ID Rafael Torres Campos, Researcher, High Performance Computing Architectures & Systems Group, INESC-ID To learn more: INESC-ID website Euro-Par 2020 paper oneAPI Dev Summit 2021 DevMesh project oneAPI
