Kazushige Gotō (後藤和茂, Gotō Kazushige) is a software engineer specializing in high performance, hand-written, machine code. He was a research associate at the Texas Advanced Computing Center at the University of Texas at Austin when he famously hand-optimized assembly routines for supercomputing and PC platforms that outperform the best compiler generated code. Several of the fastest supercomputers in the world still[when?] use his implementation of the Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) known as GotoBLAS.[citation needed] He joined Microsoft's Technical Computing Group in 2010 with the title of Senior Researcher. In July 2012 he joined Intel with the title of Software Engineer. He continues to write hand-optimized machine code, utilizing detailed knowledge of the architecture to which he has access.[1]
