Rapid Makers
By Asaf Shelly Posted on 05/03/15 0
For some while I keep finding around me things related to Makers, Quadcopters, and algorithms. At first I thought that it is just by chance... That IoT is nice, and Makers are having fun, and algorithms are just another way of saying parallel programming and so on... Apparently there is something...

Restudy SchemaRDD in SparkSQL
By Hao C. (Intel) Posted on 05/01/15 0
At the very beginning, SchemaRDD was just designed as an attempt to make life easier for developers in their daily routines of code debugging and unit testing on SparkSQL core module. The idea can boil down to describing the data structures inside RDD using a formal description similar to the relational database schema. On top of all basic functions provided by common RDD APIs, SchemaRDD also provides some straightforward relational query interface functions that are realized through SparkSQL. After several releases and updates, SchemaRDD successfully drew attention among developers in Spark community. Now, it is officially renamed to “DataFrame” API on Spark’s latest trunk. This article starts with background of SchemaRDD, and then analyzes its design principles and application characteristics. Finally, it gives a brief review of SchemaRDD’s history, and makes a general discussion on its application prospects in Spark’s future development trends.

Intel® Decimal Floating-Point Math Library
By Marius Cornea (Intel) Posted on 03/06/08 8
Decimal floating-point operations were a necessity from the beginnings of the modern age of computing.

(update) C-states, C-states and even more C-states
By Taylor K. (Intel) Posted on 03/27/08 8
As I said before, a C-state is an idle state. The processor isn't doing anything useful, so why not shut some things off? Think of it in terms of your house. If you're not at home, why keep the lights, radio, and those 6 televisions going? Modern processors have several different C-states represe...
