Something must be wrong. I was waiting to get into a lecture at my local university. My wife needed the car, so she dropped me off about an hour before the lecture started.  I pulled out my work laptop to take advantage of the time out of the office (during work hours) and 45 minutes into my work...
Blowing Snow and the Granularity of Parallel Computation
Опубликовано Clay Breshears (Intel) Размещено 19.02.2010 9
This winter I got tired of shovelling snow in my driveway and sidewalks. Normally we don't get too much snow all at once. Maybe an inch or less a couple of times per season. However, every once in a while, we get 4 or more inches overnight. Moving all that snow is slow and back breaking business....
Will a robot be doing your job in 25 years?
Опубликовано Clay Breshears (Intel) Размещено 17.02.2010 4
I don't think I'll still be working in 25 years, so I'm not too concerned about a robot taking my job.  Besides, will a robot be able to write blog posts, create courseware to teach programming languages, tools, and concepts, or co-host Parallel Programming Talk every week? The claim about a robo...

During summer vacations from elementary school, I remember watching game shows. At that time they were a staple of weekday morning programming on television. I fondly remember Art Fleming and Don Pardo as the host and announcer on Jeopardy. The game's format hasn't changed since being revived und...

Researchers at Los Alamos National Labs have been putting together software to predict the course of wildfires based on terrain, weather conditions, and the burn rate of the fuel consumed by the fire itself. An online report in Miller-McCune magazine describes some of the work and the travails of...

If you participated in last year's Intel Threading Challenge contest, we want to know what you thought about it.  Were the problems too easy? Were they too hard?   Were they just right?  Was there sufficient time to work out a solution?  Did overlapping problems slow you down or make you work har...
I'm more interesting than a wet pussycat -- An Open Letter to Stephen Colbert

Dear Sir Stephen: Put me on your show.  Please. I'd be a great guest and I've (obviously) got a book to peddle (The Art of Concurrency).  So, I'm not a political figure or Hollywood actor or a journalist with a biting exposé, but I do have a scientific background.  I know that you "get" the Scien...
