An Optimization and Co-design Framework for Sparse Computation

The SparCity project aims at creating a supercomputing framework that will provide efficient algorithms and coherent tools specifically designed for maximising the performance and energy efficiency of sparse computations on emerging HPC systems, while also opening up new usage areas for sparse computations in data analytics and deep learning.

Overall, SparCity is a forward-looking project with a significant contribution to building Europe’s strengths in the application of HPC and related software tools, in the adoption of low-energy processing technologies, and in the development of advanced software and services for its citizens.
