He worked on the project committed to OpenBLAS. OpenBLAS is an optimized BLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms) library and is optimized for each architecture to achieve high performance. But the matrix-matrix computations using OpenBLAS kernel didn’t support RVV 1.0, so he was trying to implement it. He had never contributed to OSS before starting this project, so he was very anxious to be able to do it. But his mentor guided him and helped a lot. That made it easy for him to try contributing to OSS. Also another mentee worked with him on this project with passion, and Takumi was able to work hard on the project to keep up with him. Through this mentorship project, he learned the concept of OpenBLAS and how to write RVV assembly code and the importance of breaking large tasks into smaller steps. He hopes to continue contributing to OSS in the future.
