Subject Re: Extending Codegen algorithm tests for heuristics
Date Thu, 01 Mar 2018 12:30:57 GMT
Thanks for your detailed reply.
I did some coding
<https://github.com/apache/systemml/compare/master...chamathabeysinghe:SYSTEMML-2159?diff=split&name=SYSTEMML-2159>
[1] for this issue SYSTEMML-2159 to extend test cases for FA & FNR . I got
a problem regarding success criteria's, "generating at least one fused
operator" condition, I think this means I have to look into stats of Heavy
hitter instructions and check if there are any fused operators. (my guess
is uamin and uamax are the operators what I have to look for, but I am not
sure about this because I don't know the meaning of these instructions).

Please help me to clarify this. If my approach is correct I could send a PR
after fixing tests for other algorithms. Thanks.

Regards,
Chamath
