Abstract: We increasingly need to process large and complex data volumes to enable near-real-time informed human decisions or automated response actions. Current limitations in I/O and processing capabilities hinder the timely acquisition, processing, and presentation information to decision makers for rapid response. Multi-core processors, such as the Cell B.E. processor, provide an unprecedented computational capability to curb this data deluge. In this talk I will describe the challenge in designing new data streaming algorithms for multi-core processors and and present some recent results obtained with the Cell B.E. processor.
