Jan Lemeire

"Modern accelerators provide solutions for situations in which finishing heavy computational work in time has become problematic, such as real-time image processing. We will discuss the opportunities and weaknesses of Graphical Processing Units (GPUs), which are in theory offering a 100-fold performance than CPUs."


After working for 4 years in the private sector, Jan Lemeire obtained his Doctorate degee in 2007 from Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), Belgium. His PhD research was on applying data mining techniques (based on probabilistic graphical models) for the performance analysis of parallel applications.

Thereafter he continued his work as a part time professor and postdoctoral researcher around GPU computing, performance understanding and prediction, as well as data mining (causal structure learning, hidden state models of dynamic systems). He initiated several projects in these fields and is promoter of 5 doctoral students. He teaches several courses, such as Parallel Systems and Advanced Computer Architecture.
