I have been working on gettting a topic for my master's thesis. I have been mostly on the hardware side, but covering topics like computer architecture, fault tolerance and reliability. The latter are topics of interest to me. For the past 2 years, I have been working as a software engineer for a company that uses exclusively macs and was curious about OpenCL.
I started looking into it and it seems great for serious computation, eventually I imagine people would want to use it as the "horse power" for distributed computer systems.
I don't want to bore anyone to death, and would appreciate anyone that might have any info to get me going. If anyone knows of any projects around the area of reliable distributed computing (preferably using OpenCL), please let me know. Like for example, the platform model for OpenCL doesn't seem to be well versed for recovery/reliability. It would be great to find some more info about this. \
