Scalable Algorithms, 01465

The Scalable Algorithms Department develops new algorithms and approaches to address challenges in next-generation computing hardware. The department uses its expertise in applied mathematics and computational science to address these challenges and help define the future of computing.  We have four main research thrusts:  performance portability, scalable solvers, scalable graph algorithms, and scalable machine learning.  While mission driven and focused, the Scalable Algorithms Department performs most of its research in the public domain, which allows the R&D professionals in the department to publish in the open literature and effectively team with leaders at other labs, universities, and industry.

    Karen Devine has been awarded the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) 2019 Prism Award.  According to SWE, "the Prism Award recognizes a woman who has charted her own path throughout her career, providing leadership in technology fields and professional organizations along the way."   Karen has been deservedly awarded this honor based on her contributions as a “computer science researcher, project leader, customer liaison, mentor and STEM outreach advocate.”  Her contributions in delivering algorithms and high-quality software that improve the performance of engineering simulation codes at Sandia are particularly noteworthy.

    Karen has been a trailblazer for open-source software practices and policies in Sandia.  Now her software is “used in national laboratories, industry, and universities world-wide, with 4500+ downloads of just one of her software libraries.”  Karen has demonstrated “strong and effective leadership of small software teams, multi-million dollar projects across many national laboratories, local STEM service projects, and international professional societies.”  Karen will be presented with the Prism Award at SWE’s WE19 conference on November 7.

    Kokkos User Group Meeting

    The Kokkos team is announcing the first Kokkos User Group Meeting to be held in Albuquerque New Mexico, USA April 23rd through 25th. The meeting will give the growing Kokkos community a chance to present progress in adopting Kokkos, exchange experiences, discuss challenges and help set priorities for the future roadmap of Kokkos. Projects are invited to give a 20 minute presentation. Application talks are encouraged to focus on technical and algorithmic challenges in adopting Kokkos and how Kokkos’s capabilities were used to overcome those.

    Sandia, PNNL, and Georgia Tech Partner on New AI Co-Design Center

    Sandia National Laboratories, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, and the Georgia Institute of Technology are launching a research center that combines hardware design and software development to improve artificial intelligence technologies. The Department of Energy Office of Advanced Scientific Computing Research (ASCR) will provide $5.5 million over three years for the research effort, called ARtificial Intelligence-focused Architectures and Algorithms (ARIAA). This new collaboration is intended to encourage researchers at the three institutions, each with their own specialty, to simulate and evaluate artificial intelligence hardware when employed on current or future supercomputers. Researchers also should be able to improve AI and machine-learning methods as they replace or augment more traditional computation methods. See this press release for more details.

    The Artificial Intelligence-focused Architectures and Algorithms concept has applications, algorithms, programming runtime and architectures all working together
