NVIDIA recongnizes Harvard as a CUDA Center of Excellence

Written by IT News on 1:18 AM

NVIDIASanta Clara, California-based NVIDIA announced yesterday that Harvard University was a CUDA Center of Excellence. After the graphics chip manufacturers, recognition is justified as the University's commitment to teaching GPU computing, and integration of CUDA-capable GPUs for a variety of scientific and technological research projects. Before CUDA Center of Excellence Award, Harvard University a $2M grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the development of GPU-based Computational Science.

With the interest in CUDA architecture quickly spread on campus at Harvard and scientific landscape living in Boston, it has never been a better time to announce this cooperation, "said Hans Peter Pfister, Gordon McKay Professor of Computer Science in practice is Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Head of Visual Computing at the Harvard Initiative in Innovative Computing.”This generous gift from NVIDIA offers excellent learning opportunities for Harvard students, acceleration of our research and expands the use of GPUs for computer science and other demanding applications."

Harvard University already with the Graphics Processing Unit to provide solutions for a range of issues. For example, in a project called Connectome project, GPU is used to decode the complex structure of the human brain, a search that is a priority for the scientific community for a long time. While another project using the computing power of GPU is MWA telescope project, which is to discover the origins of the universe. Besides the above, the GPU is used for other power projects, as well as at Harvard University.

Back in mid 2008, the first NVIDIA CUDA Center of Excellence, an honor awarded at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, which includes a donation of $500,000 for the development of parallel computing and the continuation of research programs.
