Rank #4: Igniting the Next Generation of Deep Learning
Increased processing power, massive amounts of data, and the development of more advanced algorithms have brought deep learning to the forefront, and TensorFlow has emerged as one of the world’s most popular machine learning frameworks. Penporn Koanantakool, Google Senior Software Engineer, and Ramesh, Intel Principal Engineer, share how their teams are collaborating to optimize TensorFlow for the latest Intel technologies using oneAPI Deep Neural Network Library (oneDNN). The result: remarkable performance gains that will benefit applications spanning natural language processing, image and object recognition, autonomous vehicles, fraud detection, medical diagnosis and treatment, and much more. Intel-optimized TensorFlow is now made available through Intel AI Analytics Toolkit and is being used within Google Cloud Platform and a Google Health project.

Rank #10: A Proving Ground for Open Standards
Andrew Lumsdaine, Chief Scientist at Northwest Institute for Advanced Computing, shares his journey in parallelism, from the HPC community’s early skepticism of and eventual move to C++ to build large systems, to his pursuit to develop a series of C++ libraries to strike at the contradiction between abstraction and performance, to today’s reality that parallelism and heterogeneity are essential for achieving performance. Together, Andrew and Mike Voss, Principal Engineer at Intel, underscore the value of open standards and high-quality implementations of open standards—specifically, the oneAPI specification and Intel oneAPI toolkits, respectively—and provide listeners with ways to get involved in helping shape ISO C++, Khronos SYCL, DPC++ and oneAPI.
