Exploit your GPU power with PyCUDA (and friends)

by Stefano Brilli for EuroPython 2011

CUDA technology permits to exploit the power of modern NVIDIA GPUs. In this talk, after a brief introduction to GPU architecture, we will focus on how CUDA got inside Python through libraries like PyCUDA and others…

By some examples we will show the main concepts and techniques for good GPU programming.

This talk targets anyone who wants to know how to exploit this technology from Python, the suitable use cases, the using techniques and the do-not-using techniques to get the best from his own GPU

    will this talk also address openCL (the "and friends" part) or only CUDA?

    The "and friends" part will address a couple of high level libraries that relies on PyCUDA. I'll probably cite OpenCL a couple of times, but this talk is mainly focused on CUDA.
