SYCL 2020 & DPC++: Improvements to the SYCL Programming Model
SYCL is a higher-level programming model to improve programming productivity on various hardware accelerators. This is single-source, domain-specific embedded language based on pure C++17. On February 9, 2021, SYCL 2020 was released to the world. The webinar will go over the improvements made to SYCL, both due to its ongoing evolution and adoption of C++17 as its base language. Topics will include the enhancements due to Unified Shared Memory, parallel reductions, and class template argument deduction.
