Quotes from our guests

-"Amazing and inspiring work!”- Adrian Freed, CNMAT/ UC Berkeley

-"Thank you for inviting us to work with you on this very interesting problem, and providing a unique approach to solving it".- Anonymous

-"Being a postdoc in the Par Lab was a very rewarding experience for me. One of the most interesting aspects of the Par Lab was the use of an application-driven, top-down approach to computer systems research. I am a true believer that that is the right approach to tackle a number of challenging research problems we have ahead."- Juan A. Colmenares, Samsung

-"Congratulations on a great start and also great finish! We expect your new venture." Go Bears.- Takahide Inoue, CITRIS

-"Going to the 2013 Winter retreat was one of the most exciting parts of my life!"- Meadowlark Bradsher, FICO

-"Great place to exchange novel ideas and interact with academia. Also offers a good opportunity to work closely with students, either as interns or collaborators."- Gilles Pokam, Intel

-"Great work!"- Kumud Bhandari, HP Labs

-"I am very grateful to the "View from Berkeley" and the inspiration times it gave me and to my students!"- Ronan Keryell, SILKAN

-"I have attended Parlab presentations in the past when I worked at HP, and was impressed with the innovation coming out of the labs in the various scientific domains not commonly though of relating to Parallel Computing."- Jon Saposhnik, NVIDIA

-"I will cherish forever the wonderful conversations I had with the brilliant Berkeley students and faculty at the ParLab retreats, particularly those held in the beautiful Lake Tahoe :) It has been a true privilege for me to be interacting with Ras Bodik and his team, especially Leo Meyerovich, on their Parallel Browser project and witnessing its impact in industry through the Mozilla Servo project."- Moh Haghighat, Intel

-"It has been a great effort from Berkeley on Parallelism. As an Intel employee, I would like to utilize it to the fullest extent, and not let the effort go waste." –Anonymous

-"It was always amazing to see what the students have created since the last 6 months.- Mark Rowland, Intel

-"It was a great experience to present at your summer Bootcamp event - decades after finishing my education at UC Berkeley."- Gary Carleton, Intel

-"It's been my privilege to witness the progress made by the Par Lab in the last few years. To all the graduate students that had that had the courage to attack some of the most difficult challenges in computer science: excellent work and thank you." - Michael Kozuch, Intel

-"My code scaled from 32 processors to ~6K processors after taking the CS267 course and talking to Prof. Demmel a number of times. It was an aha moment to see my code flying. Thanks a bunch to ParLab and Prof. Demmel."- Anonymous

-"Par Lab and the related work that came out of it was great stuff, some ground breaking and some inspired thinking preparing the new way forward for parallel computing."- Jim Peek, Flash Stor

-"Par lab work is a game changer."- Ganapati Srinivasa, Intel

-"Parlab has done an astounding job at building the roots of a new approach to dealing with parallelism. I'm impressed by the way that the findings in Parlab have motivated the ASPIRE project, which is well on its way to "living in the future". Keep up the great work!"- Anonymous

-"ParLab helped me crack a problem that economists have been struggling with for a long time - and that got me a job at MIT!"- Neil Thompson, Haas School of Business/MIT Sloan School of Business

-"That Ian Saxton shur has a way with signal."- Edward Stres, Stresnix

-"The Par Lab has been, by far, my most rewarding experience at Berkeley. The work I've done here has exceeded my expectations, and had a real impact on research and industry. But more, the people and environment have been amazing. I honestly can't imagine what I would be doing if I wasn't part of the Par Lab. Something much less cool, that's for sure."- Matther Torok, UC Berkeley

-"Very useful work with great impact to the world in parallel programming and processing."- Ziang Hu, Futurewei

-"The Parlab has hit a quadruple whammy:
- great team of professors working together
- great team of Students really working together
- great c0-location for collaborative research
- working on a really hard novel problem of many-core applications and programming.
This resulted in a home run that now clearly is landing on the beach (and not in the Bay!)
Thanks." - Kees Vissers, Xilinx

-"My time in the Par Lab has been the most enjoyable and productive period of my thirty year career. Thanks to my colleagues, students, staff, and sponsors for making all of this possible."- Kurt Keutzer, UC Berkeley
