kEDM: A Performance-portable Implementation of Empirical Dynamic Modeling using Kokkos

05/26/2021 ∙ by Keichi Takahashi, et al. ∙ 0

Empirical Dynamic Modeling (EDM) is a state-of-the-art non-linear time-series analysis framework. Despite its wide applicability, EDM was not scalable to large datasets due to its expensive computational cost. To overcome this obstacle, researchers have attempted and succeeded in accelerating EDM from both algorithmic and implementational aspects. In previous work, we developed a massively parallel implementation of EDM targeting HPC systems (mpEDM). However, mpEDM maintains different backends for different architectures. This design becomes a burden in the increasingly diversifying HPC systems, when porting to new hardware. In this paper, we design and develop a performance-portable implementation of EDM based on the Kokkos performance portability framework (kEDM), which runs on both CPUs and GPUs while based on a single codebase. Furthermore, we optimize individual kernels specifically for EDM computation, and use real-world datasets to demonstrate up to 5.5× speedup compared to mpEDM in convergent cross mapping computation.
