DataFlow Supercomputing Essentials Algorithms, Applications and Implementations

DataFlow Supercomputing Essentials Algorithms, Applications and Implementations

Author: Veljko Milutinovic, Milos Kotlar, Marko Stojanovic, Igor Dundic Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/12/2017

This illuminating text/reference reviews the fundamentals of programming for effective DataFlow computing. The DataFlow paradigm enables considerable increases in speed and reductions in power consumption for supercomputing processes, yet the programming model requires a distinctly different approach. The algorithms and examples showcased in this book will help the reader to develop their understanding of the advantages and unique features of this methodology.This work serves as a companion title to DataFlow Supercomputing Essentials: Research, Development and Education, which analyzes the latest research in this area, and the training resources available. Topics and features: presents an implementation of Neural Networks using the DataFlow paradigm, as an alternative to the traditional ControlFlow approach; discusses a solution to the three-dimensional Poisson equation, using the Fourier method and DataFlow technology; examines how the performance of the Binary Search algorithm can be improved through implementation on a DataFlow architecture; reviews the different way of thinking required to best configure the DataFlow engines for the processing of data in space flowing through the devices; highlights how the DataFlow approach can efficiently support applications in big data analytics, deep learning, and the Internet of Things. This indispensable volume will benefit all researchers interested in supercomputing in general, and DataFlow computing in particular. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students involved in courses on Data Mining, Microprocessor Systems, and VLSI Systems, will also find the book to be an invaluable resource.

DataFlow Supercomputing Essentials Research, Development and Education

Author: Veljko Milutinovic, Jakob Salom, Dragan Veljovic, Nenad Korolija Format: Hardback Release Date: 16/11/2017

This informative text/reference highlights the potential of DataFlow computing in research requiring high speeds, low power requirements, and high precision, while also benefiting from a reduction in the size of the equipment. The cutting-edge research and implementation case studies provided in this book will help the reader to develop their practical understanding of the advantages and unique features of this methodology. This work serves as a companion title to DataFlow Supercomputing Essentials: Algorithms, Applications and Implementations, which reviews the key algorithms in this area, and provides useful examples. Topics and features: reviews the library of tools, applications, and source code available to support DataFlow programming; discusses the enhancements to DataFlow computing yielded by small hardware changes, different compilation techniques, debugging, and optimizing tools; examines when a DataFlow architecture is best applied, and for which types of calculation; describes how converting applications to a DataFlow representation can result in an acceleration in performance, while reducing the power consumption; explains how to implement a DataFlow application on Maxeler hardware architecture, with links to a video tutorial series available online. This enlightening volume will be of great interest to all researchers investigating supercomputing in general, and DataFlow computing in particular. Advanced undergraduate and graduate students involved in courses on Data Mining, Microprocessor Systems, and VLSI Systems, will also find the book to be a helpful reference.

Guide to DataFlow Supercomputing Basic Concepts, Case Studies, and a Detailed Example

Guide to DataFlow Supercomputing Basic Concepts, Case Studies, and a Detailed Example

Author: Veljko Milutinovic, Jakob Salom, Nemanja Trifunovic, Roberto Giorgi Format: Paperback Release Date: 09/10/2016

This unique text/reference describes an exciting and novel approach to supercomputing in the DataFlow paradigm. The major advantages and applications of this approach are clearly described, and a detailed explanation of the programming model is provided using simple yet effective examples. The work is developed from a series of lecture courses taught by the authors in more than 40 universities across more than 20 countries, and from research carried out by Maxeler Technologies, Inc. Topics and features: presents a thorough introduction to DataFlow supercomputing for big data problems; reviews the latest research on the DataFlow architecture and its applications; introduces a new method for the rapid handling of real-world challenges involving large datasets; provides a case study on the use of the new approach to accelerate the Cooley-Tukey algorithm on a DataFlow machine; includes a step-by-step guide to the web-based integrated development environment WebIDE.

Mind Genomics A Guide to Data-Driven Marketing Strategy

Mind Genomics A Guide to Data-Driven Marketing Strategy

Author: Veljko Milutinovic, Jakob Salom Format: Paperback Release Date: 01/09/2016

In this book, the authors describe how Mind Genomics works - a revolutionary marketing method that combines the three sciences of Mathematics, Psychology, and Economics - in a masterful way. Mind Genomics helps the seller of products and services to know what people are thinking about them before one ever commits to an approach by knowing what is important to the people one is trying to influence. Mind Genomics identifies what aspects of a general topic are important to the audience, how different people in the audience will respond to different aspects of that topic, and how to pinpoint the viewpoints of different audience segments to each aspect of the topic. A careful step by step approach explains what activities ought to be taken and what scenarios must be followed while applying this method in order to find the right way to capture the hearts and minds of targeted audiences. This book explains how Mind Genomics plays a matching game with one's potential audience and various ways one can present the products and ideas resulting in a systematic approach to influencing others, backed by real data; how one can play with ideas, see patterns imposed by the mind and create new, inductive, applied sciences of the mind, measuring the world using the mind of man as the yardstick. In details it describes how everyday thought is transferred into actionable data and results. Whether one is a senior marketer for a large corporation, a professor at a university, or administrator at a hospital, one could use Mind Genomics to learn how to transform available information into actionable steps that will increase the products sales, or increase the number of interested students for a new university program, or the number of satisfied patients in the hospital with their medical conditions kept at highest levels after leaving it. Mind Genomics was first introduced by Dr. Howard Moskowitz, an alumnus of Harvard University and the father of Horizontal Segmentation - a widely accepted business model for targeted marketing and profit maximization.

Mastering E-Business Infrastructure

Author: Veljko Milutinovic Format: Paperback Release Date: 13/11/2012

As a foreword, here we publish an email letter of Late Professor Herb Simon, Nobel Laureate, that he wrote on the occasion ofthe death of the fatherofa friend. This letterofcondolence, more than any other wisdom, tells about the essence of the process of scientific creation, which is so important for both, the specific subject being covered by this book, and for the general science. When asked to address an SSGRR conference in Italy, prior to his death, Professor Herb Simon agreed that these lines be presented to all those who are interested in understanding the real essence oftheir own scientific struggle. Dear Professor Milutinovic: I want to extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family on the death of your father. His career was a very distinguished one, and his life spanned a most complex and difficult sequence of epochs in your country's history. Our generation (I am just a year younger than he was), like all its predecessors, leaves many tasks - hopefully no more than it inherited - for the next generation to take up; but even knowing that it must be so does not remove one's senseofloss in the parting.
