Collaborative filtering algorithms that extract desired information from records have been widely used in data mining and information retrieval, such as recommendation systems. However, the rapidly increased data size demands more efficient and scalable algorithms and implementations. In this paper, we present a novel algorithm that utilizes stochastic(More)
Preconditioned Conjugate Gradient (PCG) method has been demonstrated to be effective in solving large-scale linear systems for sparse and symmetric positive definite matrices. One critical problem in PCG is to design a good preconditioner, which can significantly reduce the runtime while keeping memory usage efficient. Universal preconditioners are simple(More)
Scheduling tasks with dflerent weights in the imprecise computation model is rather dflcult. Each task in the imprecise computation model is logically decomposed into a mandatory subtask and an optional subtask. The mandatory subtask must be completely executed before the deadline to produce acceptable result; the optional subtask begins after the mandatory(More)
With the ability to provide on-demand service and to reduce the IT cost, cloud computing becomes more and more popular recently. Virtualization is one of the important technologies in cloud computing, whose main idea is to provide abstractions of the physical resources. However, such abstraction can cause performance degradation, especially for I/O(More)
As the high performance computing systems scale up, mapping the tasks of a parallel application onto physical processors to allow efficient communication becomes one of the critical performance issues. Existing algorithms were usually designed to map applications with regular communication patterns. Their mapping criterion usually overlooks the size of(More)
Box intersection checking is a common task used in many large-scale simulations. Traditional methods cannot provide fast box intersection checking with large-scale datasets. This article presents a parallel algorithm to perform Pairwise Box Intersection checking on Graphics processing units (PBIG). The PBIG algorithm consists of three phases: planning,(More)
Energy efficiency is critical in wireless sensor networks (WSN) for system reliability and deployment cost. The power consumption of the communication in multi-hop WSN is primarily decided by three factors: routing distance, signal interference, and computation cost of routing. Several routing algorithms designed for energy efficiency or interference(More)
In this paper, we investigate efficient algorithms and implementations using GPU plus CPU to solve the rectangle intersection problem on a plane. The problem is to report all intersecting pairs of iso-oriented rectangles, whose parallelization on GPUs poses two major computational challenges: data partition and the massive output. The algorithm we presented(More)
A matrix operation is referred to as a hard-to-parallel matrix operation (HPMO) if it has serial bottlenecks that are hardly parallelizable. Otherwise, it is referred to as an easy-to-parallel matrix operation (EPMO). Empirical evidences showed the performance scalability of an HPMO is significantly poorer than an EPMO on multicore and distributed(More)
