Jesus Labarta is the Director of the Computer Sciences Department of Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Spain. His research team has developed performance analysis and prediction tools and pioneering research on how to increase the intelligence embedded in performance tools. He led the development of OmpSs and influenced the task based extension in OpenMP. He is now responsible for the POP center of excellence providing performance assessments to parallel code developers throughout the EU and leads the RISC-V vector accelerator within the EPI project. He has pioneered the use of Artificial Intelligence in performance tools and will promote their use in POP, as well as the AI-centric co-designing of architectures and runtime systems. He was awarded the 2017 Ken Kennedy Award for his seminal contributions to programming models and performance analysis tools for high performance computing, being the first Non-US Researcher receiving it.
