Massively Parallel AI Kernels in C++ With OpenCL SYCL
Insider Broadcast October 30th, 2014

Massively Parallel AI Kernels in C++ With OpenCL SYCL

This tutorial will focus on the new OpenCL specification called SYCL that allows developers to write parallel code in C++ as a single-source program. Using modern C++ programming techniques, kernels that run on the GPU (device) can be integrated into CPU code (host) easily using templates. This session will show some patterns to use in your code to make sure it's SYCL-compatible, and tools to use to help ...
