On March 7th of last year I attended an OCE event called the “AMD HSA and Heterogeneous Computing Research Showcase.” I recently came across my notes from the event and I thought a few quotes from the keynote speaker, Phil Rogers from AMD Canada, were worth sharing.
Phil Rogers on AMD’s commitment to open industry standards:
“open standards always win over time.”
Phil Rogers on programming with threads:
“An expert can get two threads right. An expert can sometimes get three threads right… but cannot get all of the test cases right… doesn’t scale (to 100s of threads).”
