Under What Conditions will My Application give Reproducible Results?

When it comes to binary floating-point representation, Uncertainty rules. Need reproducible results, regardless of context? Hahaha … what? Oh. Turns out Intel® Software Dev Tools can make it happen. Especially its five FREE Performance Libraries. Go get them. Then tune in.

Users are often surprised when the same application run on the same data doesn’t give the same result. (WTH?) Welcome to floating-point arithmetic—an inexact and inherently uncertain approximation that’s great … except for when it isn’t. Like for critical functions that require exact reproducibility such as finance, quality assurance, and legal stuff.

This webinar addresses the dilemma and shows you how to build a serial application that delivers repeatable results …

  • When simply rerunning the same binary executable
  • For debug builds and release-optimized builds
  • When targeting or running on different processor types

In addition, learn the conditions under which reproducible results can be obtained for parallel applications making use of the Intel® Compiler with OpenMP* and key Intel® Performance Libraries: Intel® Math Kernel Library, Threading Building Blocks, and Intel® MPI.

Accelerating the Heterogeneous World with OpenCL*

OpenCL* offers huge benefits to a wide range of applications—big hitters are portability and efficient execution (including power usage). Is it easy to learn? No. Which is why Intel has a free SDK that makes it far easier.

OpenCL* (Open Computing Language) is a well-known and attractive standard for writing parallel programs that execute across a rich mix of heterogeneous platforms—for example, those that consist of CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, programmable ASICs, and other hardware accelerators.

And unless you’ve been hunkered down in a wifi-deficient cave for the past year, you’re likely quite familiar that the need for OpenCL programs is growing. Fast.

Which is why you should register for this session.

In 55 minutes, you’ll learn the value of using OpenCL to take advantage of modern heterogeneous architectures, including:

  • Why OpenCL matters for achieving optimal performance and decreasing power consumption
  • How to get started with OpenCL
  • An overview of the Intel® SDK for OpenCL* Applications, and how this complete toolset can help you quickly build, debug, and analyze OpenCL kernel codes across Intel® CPUs and GPUs.

Be sure to download the FREE SDK now. Then sign up to attend the webinar.
