ANTAREX – AutoTuning and Adaptivity appRoach for Energy Efficient eXascale HPC Systems

To reach Exascale computing (10^18 FLOPs), current supercomputers must achieve an energy efficiency “quantum leap” that allows this level of computation to be done at around 20 Megawatts. This will only be possible if we can target all system layers, from the software stack to the cooling system. ANTAREX proposes a holistic approach capable of controlling all the decision layers in order to implement a self-adaptive application optimized for energy efficiency.

PEPCC: Power efficiency and performance for embedded and HPC systems with custom CGRAs

The goal of this project is to devise efficient techniques for dynamically mapping computations extracted from execution behavior to the resources of specialized reconfigurable accelerators. The techniques will identify at runtime the hotspots of program execution. They are then optimized and mapped to CGRAs tailored to the actual set of executing kernels. Whenever one hotspot needs to be executed, the accelerator is transparently invoked. The use of specialized CGRAs reduces resource usage and improves performance. The project will apply these concepts in the ES and HPC domains.

CONTEXTWA: Middleware and Context Inference Techniques from DataStreams for the Development of ContextAware Services using Mobile Devices

The ubiquity of the mobile communication devices, such as smartphones, allowed the emergence of context aware applications and services, which proactively respond to activities or specific situations of each user. The context information, that is, the specific state in which each user finds himself, allows the communication providers the development, and consequently the offer, of new services of added value to a great range of applications, such as social networks, advertising, navigation or leisure. Of growing importance are services and applications, related to the health sector, that depend on the precise detection of each users physical activity, whether in specific cases or along several days or weeks. Using this information, it is possible to discover and analyze the physical activity patterns and, for example, help individuals to have healthier life styles.
