The Evolution of GPU Accelerated Computing
SESSION: Thinking about the Future of Large-Scale Computing
EVENT TYPE: Keynote and Invited Talks
TIME: 9:15AM - 10:00AM
SESSION CHAIR: Bronis R. de Supinski
GPUs were invented in 1999, replacing fixed-function graphics pipelines with fully programmable processors, and ushering in the era of computational graphics. By 2003, early pioneers were using graphics APIs to perform general purpose scientific calculations on GPUs, and by 2007, NVIDIA responded by creating the CUDA architecture and programming language. GPU accelerated computing has evolved rapidly from there. This talk will briefly recount the history of GPU computing, assess where we are today, and explore how GPU computing will evolve over the coming decade as we pursue Exascale computing.
