We’re introducing the big picture of heterogenous
computing so you are prepared to tackle the big wave
that is here to stay.
This book brings researchers and engineers to the forefront
of the research frontier in the new era which began a few
years ago and is expected to continue for decades.
Heterogeneous computing results in both challenges and
opportunities. This book discusses both. It shows that we need to
deal with these challenges at all levels of the computing stack: from
algorithms all the way to process
technology. We discuss the topic
of heterogeneous computing
from different angles: hardware
challenges, current hardware
state-of-the-art, software issues,
how to make the best use of the
current heterogeneous systems,
and what lies ahead.
