Parallel Programming Talk #101 - Intel's Paul Petersen Discusses Intel® Parallel Advisor 2011

In this episode Dr. Clay Breshears and I meet with Intel's Paul Petersen to talk about Intel® Parallel Studio 2011’s Parallel Advisor – the cool tool that helps programmers find the best places to inject parrallelism into their code.

But first, the News:
Many conferences this time of year:

About our guest:  Intel Developer Products Division Senior Principal Engineer Paul Petersen (SSG) is the architect of products shipping in the Intel® Parallel Studio software package. Previously, Paul was a lead developer of parallel programming languages, and tools at Kuck and Associates, Inc. (KAI), and a founding participant in the OpenMP language standard effort.

Paul holds a Master’s degree and Ph.D. in computer science from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, and is a senior member of the ACM.

Paul proceeds to tell us all about Parallel Advisor - the tool that helps programmers find the best opportunities for parallelism in code.

Tune in next Tuesday,  Feb 15th at 8am when Intel Engineer Bevin Brett will tell us about the next part of the Parallel Studio, Parallel Advisor story. You don’t want to miss this. Bevin will talk about an actual application of Parallel Advisor and the part it is playing in reducing the time, cost and discomfort of an important medical test. A test that many shy away from – and as a result many miss early detection of cancer.  Until next time…

Remember  - there’s no use in crying over race conditions
