Half-Precision, BFloat16, and Other Float Encoding: Reference Model Recommendations from Task Group


In support of Open Source Software and publicly released modeling schemes, does the Vector Task Group have a recommendation for arithmetic reference? The published ISSs can provide checking results from a heavy-lifting simulation perspective, but even they must rely on something to model and calculate arithmetic results. The IEEE-754 encodings are handled by some easily-found solutions - what about BFloat16 and other encodings?
