Parallel Programming and Computing Platform
What is CUDA? Enroll today! Intro to Parallel Programming An open, online course from Udacity Instructors: Dr. CUDA® is a parallel computing platform and programming model invented by NVIDIA. With millions of CUDA-enabled GPUs sold to date, software developers, scientists and researchers are finding broad-ranging uses for GPU computing with CUDA. Identify hidden plaque in arteries: Heart attacks are the leading cause of death worldwide. Analyze air traffic flow: The National Airspace System manages the nationwide coordination of air traffic flow. Visualize molecules: A molecular simulation called NAMD (nanoscale molecular dynamics) gets a large performance boost with GPUs. Background GPU Computing: The Revolution You're faced with imperatives: Improve performance. Not anymore. Using high-level languages, GPU-accelerated applications run the sequential part of their workload on the CPU – which is optimized for single-threaded performance – while accelerating parallel processing on the GPU.
