Maciej Waruszewski will speak to the (San Francisco) Bay Area Julia Users Group on “Building a High-Performance Earth System Model in Julia” on Mon Sept 16 at 6:30pm. His abstract is below
To reduce and quantify uncertainties in climate predictions the Climate Modeling Alliance (CliMA) aims to develop the first Earth system model that will automatically learn from observations and targeted high-resolution simulations. The new model is being developed in Julia to ensure performance on modern heterogeneous architectures without sacrificing scientific productivity. This talk will start with a quick overview of the project and then focus on its approach to performance portability. I will share our experiences with writing fast Julia code for both CPUs and GPUs and present some of the lessons learned.
