Sven-Bodo Scholz is a Professor in Computer Science at Herriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, Scotland.
His research is driven by the desire to bridge the gap between high-productivity programming tools and high-performance heterogeneous many-core systems by means of compilation technology. Typical application areas range from multi-sensor robotics systems over big-data analytics to vision and computational science. Target systems range from embedded circuits over large clusters of GPU-accelerated systems into cloud infrastructures.
Most of his work on parallelising compiler technology is driven by the needs of industrial project partners such as Intel, AMD, Thales, SAP, Philips and others. Besides regular international dissemination in both, academia and industry, his work has led to several systems in the public domain most notably the SaC compiler tool-chain (www.sac-home.org).
