Matthias Boehm commented on SYSTEMML-1570:

Are there any updates regarding the missing max(X,0), min(X,0) on GPUs?

> The fused operator sel+ (select positive values) is applied for patterns like 
> (X>0)*X and max(X,0) in order to eliminate unnecessary intermediates. It 
> stems from a time when max was sparse-unsafe and hence inefficient over 
> sparse data. However, meanwhile we mark scalar operators as conditionally 
> sparse-safe depending on the given scalar constant c, which applies for max 
> if c<=0. Hence, this sel+ operator is meanwhile completely useless and should 
> be removed.
> Furthermore, we should also generalize the rewrites to rewrite the selection 
> of negative values (X<0)*X to min(X,0)
