Dan Doherty, MathWorks
Learn how MATLAB users can leverage NVIDIA GPUs to accelerate computationally intensive applications in areas such as image processing, signal processing, and computational finance. We show the GPU-enabled functionality in MATLAB and various add-on toolboxes, and demonstrate how you can integrate your own custom CUDA kernels into MATLAB. We also demonstrate how MATLAB supports CUDA kernel development by providing a high-level language and development environment for prototyping algorithms and incrementally developing and testing CUDA kernels.
A wave propagation example will be used to demonstrate these capabilities and the speedups achieved through GPU computing.
