Academic Partnership Program

The HSA Foundation seeks to work with brightest minds in the field of heterogeneous computing by open collaboration with key professors, researchers and universities. Our aim is to stimulate the next evolution of heterogeneous parallel computing in Architecture, Tools, Runtimes, Operating Systems, Applications and Services.

Bringing about the next evolution in computing 

The HSA Foundation is looking to develop relationships with research universities looking to work on the next evolution in computing in both hardware and software research areas. We are looking to explore all facets of HSA architecture.  HSA will open up new algorithms and even more avenues of research especially for computational problems too large for the GPU local memory.  There are number of new area that can be explored in computer graphics, computer vision and computational photography when you address the whole system as HSA does. Programming language and model research is another area we are looking to encourage research. There are  no limits to the number of problems just waiting to be solved.

“Neither wisdom nor good will is now dominant. Hope lies in dreams, in imagination and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality.” Jonas Salk

Shaping the Next Generation of Computing Minds

The HSA Foundation is also looking to establish teaching centers on HSA to bring about the next  generation computer scientist, programmers, electrical engineers, and scientists  who will drive the next innovation around HSA enabled hardware and software.
