Lift: Primitives for Hybrid CPU/GPU Parallel Programming
Abstract:
Lift is a thin abstraction layer that hides some of the complexity of parallel programming. It provides a set of primitives analogous to (and entirely compatible with) NVIDIA's Thrust library, but designed around drastically simpler code, suitable for inclusion in large, complex projects which target NVIDIA GPUs or Intel CPUs. Lift is an open-source project under active development at Genia. It is the foundation for our primary analysis pipeline for DNA sequencing, as well as the foundation for Firepony, an open-source base quality score recalibrator for DNA sequencing data. We'll cover the motivation for Lift and the applications we're developing it for, and then explain how it works, what problems it solves, and what lessons we learned from prior experience with similar libraries.
