Bangalore: NVIDIA today announced the launch of an online platform dedicated to Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) computing and High Performance Computing (HPC) users, for the first time in India. The informal special interest group will bring together GPU users from all fields and experience levels in India, including academicians, researchers, scientists, device manufacturers, system integrators, service providers and all early adopters of HPC & GPU computing.
The group, hosted on Meetup.com – the world’s largest network of local groups, will provide HPC and GPU computing enthusiasts in India a comprehensive platform to track industry trends and engage with each other, discussing the latest developments in the field. This group will have regular monthly meet-ups on web (By Web-Ex, Conf Calls) and many more activities. The group will discuss general GPU computing, including GPGPU, CUDA, OpenACC, OpenCL, compute node Interconnects, DirectCompute, DirectX, OpenGL and related technologies.
The group, supported by NVIDIA, will have a core group of key academicians to lead and moderate discussions. The site will feature a bank of research papers, case studies and posts on the latest technological developments not only at NVIDIA but also in the global industry. The platform will also encourage users to engage over group chats and web conferences to interact with each other. NVIDIA will periodically host live talks with industry experts to elucidate on pertinent industry updates. There is a GPU Compute Group active in Trivandrum, Kerala.
In a release, Vishal Dhupar, MD, South Asia, NVIDIA said, “GPU computing is becoming increasingly relevant in our lives today. Everyone from gaming enthusiasts, to college students, working professionals to researchers and scientists can apply the GPU to enable better graphics and faster computing. NVIDIA will lead and facilitate the pioneering HPC and GPU Computing Group with an aim to establish a strong connect among GPU computing users and spread GPU computing awareness in India. We hope to make the GPU synonymous with computing and build a strong interconnected community of GPU users in India.”
NVIDIA awakened the world to computer graphics when it invented the GPU in 1999. Today, its processors power a broad range of products from smartphones to supercomputers. NVIDIA’s mobile processors are used in mobile phones, tablets and auto infotainment systems. PC gamers rely on GPUs to enjoy spectacularly immersive worlds.
