Intel Graduate Internship in Santa Clara, California

Job Description

The Visual Computing Products Group VCP and the Intel Parallel Computing Lab PCL are looking for a graduate intern to help add support for spatial architectures in the Halide programming language. The temporal-to-spatial T2S project brings new scheduling constructs to Halide that express spatial replication essential for achieving optimal performance on FPGAs. This internship centers around creating a proof-of-concept under the supervision of the T2S project lead and incremental progress reports to the product team. The goal is to create a working prototype that will demonstrate that Halide can radically simplify high-performance FPGA designs.
