GPU computing

The University of Delaware has been named a GPU Education Center by NVIDIA, a computer technology company that has pioneered GPU-accelerated computing. GPU Education Centers are institutions recognized for integrating GPU-accelerated computing into their mainstream science and engineering curricula. Sunita Chandrasekaran, assistant professor of computer science, will direct the effort at UD. Chandrasekaran, who led a GPU hackathon at UD earlier this year in collaboration with Oak Ridge National Lab, explains that GPU-accelerated computing is the use of a graphics processing unit together with a central processing unit to overcome the power and space limitations inherent in previous generations of high-performance computers. The technology enables dramatic increases in performance for artificial intelligence, deep learning, graphics, engineering, and other computationally demanding scientific applications. As a GPU Education Center, UD will have…
