In this talk I will give a quick overview of the Liquid Metal project at IBM (Read more). I will then talk about the GPU backend which I developed in collaboration with IBM into more details.

I will try to make this ICSA Colloquium Talk (as opposed to the talk I will give the same week on Tuesday at the SPLS) more focused around the technical aspect of the project. Especially, it will cover the different GPU optimizations implemented.

Liquid Metal aims to address the difficulties that programmers face today when developing applications for computers that feature programmable accelerators (GPUs and FPGAs) alongside conventional multi-core processors. It offers a single unified programming language called Lime and a runtime that allows (all) portions of an application to move fluidly between hardware and software, dynamically and adaptively.
