As part of the upcoming H2020 E2Data project, we are interested in exploiting heterogeneous hardware resources on Big Data stacks. Our main interest is in sharing resources for researching and developing novel tool and components for dynamic acceleration of data analytics.
Share results from the OPERA project which main achievements are on Computing continuum, Low Power Scalable Form Factor Data Center, workload decomposition, Ultra Low Power Devices and FPGA acceleration for CNN.
Istituto Superiore Mario Boella is a Research and Innovation Center in the Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) domain. On the alliance main fields of contribution will on applied research on resources allocation, Low Power computing and communications, Heterogeneous Low Power architectures, CNN on FPGA accelerators, Cloud computing, sharing projects results and skills for next generation on heterogeneous hardware and software architectures.
EIFFAGE globally is heavily investing in development of new technologies that can improve industry operations and people’s life. Teseo, as the Italian subsidiary of EIFFAGE Group, has several direct interests in the Alliance, including contribution to the growth of the heterogeneity market leveraging on the experience made during the decades and in a H2020 project on Ultra low power and low power heterogeneous architectures called OPERA.
Think Silicon S.A. is specialized in designing and developing ultra low-power IP semiconductor cores in the field of computer graphics. Our product portfolio includes multicore Graphics Processors and Display controllers. We are currently designing a heterogeneous GPU targeting mainly the IoT and Wearable market. Apart from the GPU HW, we are developing the GPU libraries and drivers as well as profiling tools for multicore GPUs.
IUMA-ULPGC is a research center linked to Hipeac network, and a established and certified NVIDIA CUDA Research Center in Europe. It is also a reference center for ADA 2012 Run Time Environment supporting Ada Core NY and Paris (IUMA also supported RTE of ADA 95 and Ada 2005). IUMA works in GPU, Hardware Accelerators, and MPSoC, including many-cores.
Certios is interested in sharing ideas, tap into a potentially very interesting international network, and start up new research projects with other members.
WINGS ICT Solutions is interested in the Alliance, as we do have the experience and expertise to actively contribute to different phases of applications for H-HW&SW.
The Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) is the Spanish national supercomputing facility which mission is to do research, develop and manage information technologies to facilitate scientific progress. The Computer Sciences Department at BSC aims at influencing in the way of computers are build and program as well as adapting current hardware and software technologies to make efficient use of supercomputing infrastructures.
University of Manchester is interested in joining the Heterogeneity Alliance to disseminate their results in the domain across diverse projects and also to foster collaboration with other projects and organisations working on the same field.
