We have been investigating compiler-generated software diversity as a defense mechanism against software attacks. This approach is in many ways similar to biodiversity in nature.
Extracting optimal performance from modern computing platforms has become increasingly difficult. The effect is particularly noticeable in computations that are of mathematical nature such as those needed in media processing, communication, control, data analytics, or scientific simulations. In these domains, straightfoward implementations often underperform by one or even two orders of magnitude. The reason is in optimizations that are knnow to be difficult and often impossible for compilers: parallelization, vectorization, and locailty optimizations.
