As the need to support hardware accelerators grows, ECP’s Software for Linear Algebra Targeting Exascale (SLATE) project is developing a replacement for the Scalable Linear Algebra PACKage (ScaLAPACK) library, the industry standard for dense linear algebra operations.
Jakub Kurzak, a research assistant professor at the University of Tennessee’s Innovative Computing Laboratory, shares insights with ECP Communications Manager Mike Bernhardt about the SLATE project on the Let’s Talk Exascale podcast.
