CAS Project # 1006 - Exploring Approximation Algorithms for Instruction Scheduling
This project best exemplifies the IBM Center for Advanced Studies mission, by delivering excellence in applied research, exposing
IBM development teams to new and emerging technologies, and transferring results into commercial products.
This project is recognized for its outstanding contributions to the world class performance of IBM mathematical libraries for
z13, z14, zLinux and POWER9 MASS. The research team created an integrated hardware and software solution that significantly speeds
up the computation of elementary functions which are pervasive in business analytics, deep learning and cryptographic applications.
The patented technology arising from this project will impact future generations of IBM processors.
