As part of our "Trends in Software Engineering" Obserseminar, our special guest, Prof. Saumya K Debray, will give a talk entitled "Language-Agnostic Optimization of Interpreted Code". This talk's abstract is:
"Scientists often develop their research software in languages, such as Matlab, Python, or R, that support ease of programming. Unfortunately, this sometimes incurs a cost in performance and scalability. We describe some of the ideas behind a new project that aims to automatically optimize and parallelize scientific codes written in such languages. The goal is to develop techniques and tools that are language-agnostic, i.e., which can be applied without regard to the particular source language the program was written in".
