Ausgewählte Themen aus dem Bereich Datenbanken und Informationssysteme: Data Processing On Modern Hardware

Dr. Viktor Leis

Content

This course covers how to efficiently process data on modern hardware. It focuses on:

  • parallelizing data-intensive tasks on multi-core CPUs
  • efficient synchronization (lock-free data structures, optimistic locks, hardware transactional memory)
  • SIMD processing (AVX-512)

Organization

  • 5 ECTS
  • The lectures are held in English.
  • Lecture + Exercises: Monday, 1pm-4pm
  • First lecture: October 23
  • Room: 02.11.018
  • There will be an exam (E) and graded homeworks (H). The overall grade will be computed as follows: min(E, E*0.6 + H*0.4). In addition, you have to achieve a 4.0 in the exam to pass the course. The exam might be oral (depending on the number of participants).

Prerequisites

  • systems programming experience in C/C++
