MIPRO 2019 - 42nd International Convention

WS4 - DataFlow SuperComputing for BigData DeepAnalytics

Miloš Kotlar,


This workshop presents the DataFlow SuperComputing paradigm, defines its advantages and sheds light on the related programming model with hands-on coding experience. DataFlow computers, compared to ControlFlow computers, offer speedups of 20 to 200 (even 2000 for some applications), and power and size reductions of up to 1/20. However, the programming paradigm is different, and has to be studied. The workshop explains the paradigm of programming in space, using Maxeler (a provider of multiscale dataflow computing systems) as an example, and gives an overview of ongoing research in the field. Examples include Data Engineering, Image Processing, Deep Learning, Financial Analytics, GeoPhysics, Genomics, etc.

Expected outcames:

Deep understanding of the dataflow paradigm, ability to use dataflow accelerators, mastering the dataflow programming model, and acquiring a strong hands-on experience.

Target audience:

The workshop is intended for students and researchers who want to learn know-how needed for the mastering of the dataflow programming model and the related technology that Intel describes in the Intel patent (US20180189063A1) about the next generation Intel products, portrayed by Intel as: "Intel has dreamed up a new architecture that could in one fell swoop kill off the general purpose processor as a concept and the X86 instruction set as the foundation of modern computing.

Preliminary program:

Introduction to DataFlow computing; Concepts of DataFlow computing; Applications of DataFlow computing; Details of programming in space with hands-on activities; Detailed examples with hands-on: Math, Imaging, Machine Learning, TensorFlow, etc.; Advanced issues, synergy with IoT and WSNs.

The workshop will be held in English.

Opatija, with its 170-year-old tourism tradition, is the leading seaside resort of the Eastern Adriatic and one of the most famous tourist destinations on the Mediterranean. With its aristocratic architecture and style, Opatija has been attracting artists, kings, politicians, scientists, sportsmen, as well as business people, bankers and managers for more than 170 years.

The tourist offer in Opatija includes a vast number of hotels, excellent restaurants, entertainment venues, art festivals, superb modern and classical music concerts, beaches and swimming pools – this city satisfies all wishes and demands.

Opatija, the Queen of the Adriatic, is also one of the most prominent congress cities in the Mediterranean, particularly important for its ICT conventions, one of which is MIPRO, which has been held in Opatija since 1979, and has attracted more than a thousand participants from over forty countries. These conventions promote Opatija as one of the most desirable technological, business, educational and scientific centers in South-eastern Europe and the European Union in general.
