BONSAI

Overview

The goal of the BEAST on OpeN Software Attuning Infrastructure (BONSAI) project is to develop a software infrastructure for using parallel hybrid systems at any scale to carry out large, concurrent autotuning sweeps in order to dramatically accelerate the optimization process of computational kernels for GPU accelerators and many-core coprocessors.

BONSAI builds on the experiences of the BEAST project, which prototyped and validated an autotuning workflow consisting of generation and pruning of the parameter search space; compilation, benchmarking, and profiling of the kernels that pass the pruning; and collection, analysis, and visualization of the performance data.
