In this slidecast, Adapteva Founder & CEO Andreas Olofsson describes the new Parallella project, an open-source development platform for low-power parallel computing. In an attempt to finance the project, the company is launching Parallella as a Kickstarter campaign so that the development platform can be offered for only $99 dollars.
"Inspired by great hardware communities like Raspberry Pi and Arduino, we see a critical need for an truly open, high-performance computing platform that will close the knowledge gap in parallel programing," said Andreas Olofsson, CEO of Adapteva. "High performance parallel computing is currently only accessible to a small and select group of expert programmers. The goal of the Parallella project is to democratize access to parallel computing. The parallel programming dilemma is a grand challenge of computer science and we need all hands on deck."
