Graduate Intern at Intel - Parallel Ray-Tracing

Ray-tracing is a classic example of an embarrassingly parallel algorithm; since each pixel is typically independent of the rest, theoretically every pixel can be done in parallel (given enough core

Intel® System Studio - Multicore Programming with Intel® Cilk™ Plus

Intel System Studio not only provides a variety of signal processing primitives via Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP), and Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL), but also allows developing high-performance low-latency custom code (Intel C++ Compiler with Intel Cilk Plus). Since Intel Cilk Plus is built into the compiler, it can be used where it demands an efficient threading...

Using Pedigrees in Intel® Cilk™ Plus

Pedigrees are a new feature implemented in Intel Cilk Plus and currently available in Intel® Composer XE 2013. In this post, I explain what pedigrees are, how they work, and how you can use them in Cilk Plus. Pedigrees are a key component used in the implementation of DotMix, a contributed code for a deterministic parallel random-number generator (DPRNG) discussed in my previous post.
