I know of several teams in academia where this is a research topic.
One of Joel Falcou's PhD students, Ian Masliah, has worked on this, you
can try discussing it with him.

One of his goals is also to choose the best pivoting method or detect
whether it's a good idea to use mixed-precision methods or to offload on
the GPU.
