Today, the American technology company Intel and the Institute of Computing Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences have announced a strategic partnership to jointly build China’s first oneAPI Center of Excellence.
The announcement was made at the 3rd China SuperComputing Conference (ChinaSC 2021) held in Beijing today in the form of online and offline.
The Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Computing Technology had previously joined the oneAPI Technical Advisory Boards (Technical Advisory Boards). It contributed to the implementation of the open-source data parallel.
According to Intel, the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Computing Technology is China’s first academic institution dedicated to comprehensive computer science and technology research. This collaboration focuses on the following aspects, based on their individual advantages:
Enhance oneAPI to enable more hardware: The two parties will extend the oneAPI unified programming framework to accommodate local accelerators in China, based on the open oneAPI specification.
This framework will make parallel software creation and migration easier and allow users to fully utilize various hardware capabilities. In addition, the two parties will collaborate to promote open-source software projects and engage in the development of industry standards in China.
Curriculum teaching and development: The two parties will work together to build courseware centered on oneAPI and incorporate oneAPI information into related courses and student hands-on activities.
Students can sign up for oneAPI DevCloud and complete experiments as well as create new oneAPI applications to add to their collection of hands-on experiment cases.
Examining the configuration and optimization of accelerated computing in common intelligent transportation applications: The Chinese Academy of Sciences calculates the intelligent analysis of multi-camera input and real-time vehicle-road collaborative control in the field of intelligent transportation as typical applications to carry out research based on common work results, with the goal of passing Smart vehicles which should be given more power to increase highway safety and efficiency.
The two parties will collaborate to build intelligent mobility + computing power Internet demonstration apps and push related standards.
The OneAPI aims to provide a unified programming model and application program interface that is compatible with a variety of computing architectures, allowing developers to choose the architecture that best suits their needs without having to rewrite software for new architectures and platforms.
