  1. 1. Geographical inequalities in burden of disease at local authority level in Scotland: A subnational analysis for the Scottish Burden of Disease Study 2016

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Socialmedicin och global hälsa

    Author : Georgia Dyer; [2020]
    Keywords : Burden of disease; disability-adjusted life years; years of life lost; years lived with a disability; Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation; local authorities; Scotland; Medicine and Health Sciences;

    Abstract : Background: Scotland possesses the worst mortality outcomes and slowest improvement in life expectancy of Western Europe. Within Scotland, stark inequalities exist in both morbidity and mortality. There remains paucity in assessment of subnational variation in disease burden. READ MORE

  2. 2. Idiom-driven innermost loop vectorization in the presence of cross-iteration data dependencies in the HotSpot C2 compiler

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Programvara och system

    Author : William Sjöblom; [2020]
    Keywords : compiler; vectorization; SIMD; Java; HotSpot; code optimization; reductions; prefix sums; parallel programming; data-level parallelism;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a technique for automatic vectorization of innermost single statement loops with a cross-iteration data dependence by analyzing data-flow to recognize frequently recurring program idioms. Recognition is carried out by matching the circular SSA data-flow found around the loop body’s φ-function against several primitive patterns, forming a tree representation of the relevant data-flow that is then pruned down to a single parameterized node, providing a high-level specification of the data-flow idiom at hand used to guide algorithmic replacement applied to the intermediate representation.

  3. 3. Evaluation of Machine Learning Primitives on a Digital Signal Processor

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Medie- och InformationsteknikLinköpings universitet/Tekniska högskolan

    Author : Vilhelm Engström; [2020]
    Keywords : digital signal processor; DSP; SIMD; data parallelism; machine learning; deep learning; convolutional neural network;

    Abstract : Modern handheld devices rely on specialized hardware for evaluating machine learning algorithms. This thesis investigates the feasibility of using the digital signal processor, a part of the modem of the device, as an alternative to this specialized hardware. READ MORE

  4. 4. SIMD Optimizations of Software Rendering in 2D Video Games

    University essay from Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap och medieteknik (DM); Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för datavetenskap och medieteknik (DM)

    Author : Oskar Mendel; Jesper Bergström; [2019]
    Keywords : SIMD; AVX; SSE; CPU; GPU; Parallel programming; Optimization; Game developement; Game engine; x86; Haswell; Rendering;

    Abstract : Optimizing rendering is one of the greatest challenges faced by game developers. Most game engines make use of hardware rendering which uses technology specifically built for rendering. Before such hardware existed, game developers had to rely on the CPU to render their games. This is known as software rendering. READ MORE

  5. 5. Constructions for efficient MDS diffusion layers

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för informations- och kommunikationsteknik (ICT)

    Author : Nikolaos Tatsis; [2017]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Matrices are widely used in Block Cipher Diffusion layers, usually chosen for offering maximal branch numbers, and allowing lightweight hardware implementations through their low XOR Count. When implemented in software however, is XOR Count the only metric? This project will utilize the parallelism provided by modern SIMD vector instructions to evaluate metrics, by implementing different algorithmic approaches. READ MORE
