The Golden Age of Compilers: Analyzing Cross-Cutting Issues and Opportunities across HPC and AI Domains

Moderator: Gokcen Kestor (Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL); University of California, Merced), Jacques Pienaar (Google)

Panelists: Hal Finkel (U.S. Department of Energy), Luis Ceze (University of Washington), Albert Cohen (Google, INRIA), Johannes Rudolf Doerfert (Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory), Maryam Mehri Dehnavi (University of Toronto)

Abstract: This panel discussion aims at identifying cross-cutting issues, opportunities, similarities, and discrepancies between HPC and AI workloads and systems, as well as defining the role of compilers in the development of HPC applications and AI models. While there is a clear overlap in problems being solved in HPC and AI communities, often solutions are siloed to one, with software fragmentation and increased maintenance cost. It has become critical to identify current gaps and potential solutions in current compiler frameworks and to develop an interoperable environment to help researchers move to the next stage of scientific discoveries, such as moving from classification models to machine reasoning. This panel brings together the experience of distinguished researchers from industry, academia, the U.S. National Laboratory, and the U.S. Department of Energy, to share their vision, identify current gaps and research opportunities, and define a future research agenda.
