The First HSA Academic Center of Excellence
Dr. John Glossner, President of HSA or The Heterogeneous System Architecture a non-profit whose goal is making programming for parallel computing easy and pervasive joins Enterprise Radio to discuss more about the foundation, the overall benefit and the new partnership.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Dr. John Glossner discuss the following:
- Describe the Foundation and how it got started.
- What are the overall benefits of joining the Foundation and adopting the membership?
- You recently announced new developments in heterogeneous architecture from Northeastern University. Can you tell us more about those developments?
- Any particular reason why your selected Northeastern for this partnership?
- Will the Foundation also be developing relationships with other key research universities worldwide? Have you identified those partnerships yet?
- Which industry constituents might be interested in the HSA Foundation’s work?
- How does the HSA Foundation development process work?
- How does one get involved and what is the criteria for being accepted into the Foundation?
John Glossner, Ph.D. is the President of The Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Foundation and is a non-profit consortium of SoC IP vendors, OEMs, Academia, SoC vendors, OSVs and ISVs, whose goal is making programming for parallel computing easy and pervasive.
HSA members are building a heterogeneous computing ecosystem, rooted in industry standards, which combines scalar processing on the CPU with parallel processing on the GPU, while enabling high bandwidth access to memory and high application performance with low power consumption.
HSA defines interfaces for parallel computation using CPU, GPU and other programmable and fixed function devices, while supporting a diverse set of high-level programming languages, and creating the foundation for next-generation, general-purpose computing.
Glossner currently serves as CEO of General Processor Technologies.
