This course will introduce you to the multiple forms of parallelism found in modern Intel architecture processors and teach you the programming frameworks for handling this parallelism in applications. You will get access to a cluster of modern manycore processors (Intel Xeon Phi architecture) for experiments with graded programming exercises. This course can apply to various HPC and datacenter workloads and framework including artificial intelligence (AI). You will learn how to handle data parallelism with vector instructions, task parallelism in shared memory with threads, parallelism in distributed memory with message passing, and memory architecture parallelism with optimized data containers. This knowledge will help you to accelerate computational applications by orders of magnitude, all the while keeping your code portable and future-proof. Prerequisite: programming in C/C++ or Fortran in the Linux environment and Linux shell proficiency (navigation, file copying, editing files in text-based editors, compilation)....

This coursework helped me to know the working of Intel architecture. How to optimize the code over the existing architecture with the help of vectorization and multithreading.

This was a very good experience and I will get additional marks for this in Computer Architecture Thanks to Coursera

Very good course for the various aspects of parallelism. There several ways to parallelize and this course touched on all of them. Each of the topics could be a whole course in itself, this course did well to stay to the fundamentals. There is a lot that I will take with me and apply to my work in software development.

The material and learning is great! Cutting 1 star because some of the assignments have inaccurate information about how to run the program, so there could have been more care on part of the instructor there, but overall, a very useful course for enhancing your understanding about parallel computing

Some concepts are difficult to understand if you don't have a good background in computer science. The labs are about math problems that sometimes you don't understand. But in general it is a good introducing course.

Best course to "start" parallelization on Intel architecture. However, this is just beginning a lot more to be discovered after this course. This course gives hands-on experience on intel architecture.

A nice introduction to parallelism on Intel Architecture, some problem with cuts in some videos but we have the lecture on our side for complementary informations.

Good course material and instructor. But discussion forum is awfully quiet. Looks as if no other courses on this specialization are available anymore.

A very good course with excellent material to enhance your knowledge. The quality of some videos could be improved (sudden changes/gaps).

It was a nice course. I got a chance to learn many things, and worked really hard to complete the course.

Fairly comprehensive course, though the content can be improved by going into a little more depth.

Would have liked more exploring in the OpenMP section, but awesome course overall

Good resource for learning parallelism on Intel architecture. Learning quite a bit about the various architectural optimizations OpenMP directives will do. Forums not helpful. Been stuck on some HW without proper guidance. Lacks engagement is why I rate 3 star.

It could be better. Nice effort using Colfax servers, and videos are well explained, but, sometimes, answers doesn't make sense without compiler directives. Improve feedback will give them a better course.

The assignments are somewhat vague and takes time to figure out what was expected. Significant gap between material covered in week 5 and the assignments

Great course, maybe more talking on hardware architecture can be added and comparisons with other hardware platforms.
