Manu is a PhD student in the Computational Media department at the University of California at Santa Cruz. He is also a part of the Creative Coding Lab supervised by Professor Angus Forbes. He received a master of science in computer science from the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he was a part of the Electronic Visualization Lab. He has a bachelor in computer science from the Cochin University of Science and Technology.

Manu's research focuses on real-time graphics and machine learning. Recent advances have inspired Manu to explore neural network-assisted techniques for ray tracing and global illumination. In his research, Manu aims to solve various rendering problems with deep learning solutions optimized for high performance.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
