Great Cross-Architecture Challenge Showcase: Eugenio Marinelli


Challenge winner and professional developer Eugenio Marinelli of France used oneAPI’s complete set of cross-architecture libraries and tools for his application. He was able to efficiently develop a new application for implementing scalable, heterogeneous parallel processing algorithms that can be used to quickly and accurately decode digital data stored in synthetic DNA.

The Great Cross-Architecture Challenge was a 14-week contest for professional and student software developers who are interested in developing cross-architecture applications using oneAPI. Participants were challenged to be the next “oneAPI hero” by either porting an existing C/C++ or CUDA* application using the Intel® DPC++ Compatibility Tool or by creating an entirely new oneAPI application. As part of the contest, developers received free access to Intel® toolkits on Intel® Developer Cloud across an array of Intel CPUs, GPUs and FPGA architectures, along with resources such as code samples, developer guides, webinars, and a developer collaboration portal (Intel® DevMesh).



Eugenio Marinelli is currently a PhD student in the Data Science Department at EURECOM in Sophia Antipolis, France. He received his master's degree in computer engineering from the Politecnico di Torino in April 2021. His research interests include hardware acceleration for DNA data storage and HPC.
