This weekend I attended the MRMCD18
in Darmstadt, which is one of the many chaos events where a few hundred people
interested in computer science, hacking, making, politics and society
gather for a weekend of talks, coding and discussion. Having participated
in this event regularly in the past few years, I was very happy
that this year I was given the chance to present a lecture.
I chose to talk about lazy matrices and contraction-based algorithms.
Even though this topic is discussed briefly in my
I typically keep it rather short in my typical talks.
molsturm design paper
was only brief with respect to this subject.
In this talk I therefore took the chance to expand
on contraction-based methods a bit further,
tackling the matter by taking a look at latency numbers in modern hardware
and from there drawing conclusions with respect to numerical linear algebra.
Thanks to the great C3VOC team
the talk was recorded live and can be
watched on media.ccc.de
or downloaded below, along with my slides.
Note: Unfortunately the batteries of the microphone gave up
in the middle of my talk, around 25:20.
However, if you seek the video forward to minute 26:17,
I switch to a handheld and audio is back.
