Today I had a look at calendar and found that one year of whatif life of Intel® Summary Statistics Library passed. During this year we, Intel® Summary Statistics Team, were able to do a lot of things:
- Release two versions of the package
- Extend the library with new features and algorithms including optimized functionality
- Extend a set of the library documentation with the Application Notes
- Extend number of examples that demonstrate the usage of the library
- Complete series of blogs that describe functionality and performance of the library
We design the library keeping in mind three simple ideas:
- Information volumes substantially raises and will keep raising in all or almost all segments of human activity
- Necessity to quickly process information and make well found data based decisions is an integral part of business
- Up-to-date hardware and parallel algorithms can connect those two aspects and simplify our life
I believe that value of any product, directions for its development strongly depend on its usability in applications and its opportunity to address various problems.
I think we have reached the point where we need to look around and understand how well Intel® Summary Statistics Library implements those ideas.
To help us to understand how the library meets your expectations and requirements, to help us to align the tool with your needs I encourage answering 12 short questions available at
The feedback would take a couple of minutes; on the other hand, your response is critical to the success of our product and will help to drive the future direction of the Intel® Math Kernel Library.
