Optimizing Emerging Multimedia Algorithms on Multi-core CPUs

Title: Optimizing Emerging Multimedia Algorithms on Multi-core CPUs 

Time: 10:00-11:00 AM, April 10, 2012

 Location: FIT 1-515

 Speaker: Prof. Yen Kuang Chen, IEEE Fellow

 Abstract: Multi-core processors are now prevalent everywhere from desktops and graphics processors to laptops and embedded systems. Many novel multimedia applications can be enabled by multi-core processors. More importantly, multimedia system designers must understand the nuances of a multi-core computing engine, only then can the tremendous computing power that such platforms provide be harnessed efficiently.

 This talk will first show some of the emerging applications that can take advantage of the processing power of multi-core processors. This talk will then show the advanced optimization techniques on Intel multi-core processors with shared cache. In particular, we will use design examples of image processing, computer vision, and video codec to demonstrate the algorithm changes for efficient implementations on Intel multi-core platforms.
