HPC: Bridging ECE and DBMI

Seminar Date: 
2019-10-04
Seminar Time: 
11am - 12pm
Seminar Location: 
5607 Baum Boulevard, Room 407A
Presenter: 
Franz Franchetti, PhD
Presenter's Institution: 
Electric and Computer Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University

In this talk I will first discuss the state of computing technology and the fast pace of change due to Moore's law, and set this into context of the time scale of other computing developments like algorithms and computer languages. I will show the impact on solvable computing problems at various computing scales. This sets the stage for discussing SPIRAL, a 20 year research project at Carnegie Mellon University to capture hardware and algorithm interactions in an AI system for performance engineering. In the final part of my talk I will discuss a collaborative project with the Department of Pharmacy at the University of Pittsburgh where high performance computing and modeling is used for a measurement-based step towards personalized medicine. My goal as mathematician and computer engineer at CMU holding an adjunct position at DBMI is to foster interdisciplinary discussions and research.
