At the university of Newcastle they use OpenCL for researching the performance balance between software and hardware. This resource management isn’t limited to shared memory systems, but extends to mixed architectures where batches of co-processors and other resources make it much more complex problem to solve. They chose OpenCL as it gives both inter-node and intra-node resource-management.
Currently they offer a PhD position and seek the brilliant mind that can solve the heterogeneous puzzle like a chess player. It is a continuation of years of research and the full description is in the PDF below.
