The HPC Podcast #12 -- Intel Python (and Supercomputing 15!)

Written on February 11, 2016 by Chris Stephens

Episode Details

Don and I sit down after a holiday hiatus to talk about an interesting development. Intel has announced they are going to maintain a build of Python. Good news for a language that has been around for a long time.

We also discuss our time at Supercomputing 2015 and FPGAs.

Here is our travel schedule for this year: https://www.pugetsystems.com/blog/2015/10/21/Event-Schedule-For-2016-713/

Could you, Chris, please add some transcripts from the comparison tests, to allow a citation?

Originally I have asked this at Donald's blog post >>> https://www.pugetsystems.co...

But from this HPC PodCast, it came out, that you have made those tests hands-on -- could you repeat the code and timing results? Deep Intel knowledge of the CPU-vectorisation instructions could help a lot in a bit smarter python code deployment on their own silicon, so the spoken out figures are quite promising. What do you think about?

( The hate was expressed so tangibly :o) so there ought be some space for HPC humility, code and some quantitative data on the performance comparisons made )

Thanks for your kind re-consideration.

Long live the FORTRAN IV COMMON-tricks
