The computational power available to students and researchers today is unprecedented. With NVIDIA GPU accelerators, yesterday’s supercomputer have shrunken down to a single workstation. Most of the GPU activity on campus was traditionally found in engineering and computer science programs. But AI and data science have since permeated all disciplines on campus, bringing GPUs alongside them.
This workshop is intended to expose you to GPUs in the higher education space. You’ll learn how researchers are using GPUs to accelerate data science, AI, and traditional simulation. We’ll discuss some of the computational advantages of GPUs, and how you might begin using one to accelerate your own work. No prerequisite knowledge on GPUs is required to benefit from this session.
