Webinar: MATLAB for CUDA Programmers
- Date: Wednesday, April 10th, 2013
- Time: 8:00am - 9:00am
Also at 1 pm
In this webinar, you’ll see 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. Product demonstrations will highlight how MATLAB can be used to:
- Write prototype code to explore algorithms before implementing them in CUDA
- Quickly evaluate kernels for different input data
- Analyze and visualize kernel results
- Write test harnesses to validate that kernels are working correctly
You will see how MATLAB reduces the amount of code required for evaluating and testing kernels compared with lower level languages such as C or Fortran. You will also see how the GPU-enabled functionality in MATLAB lets you take advantage of GPU computing without having to write CUDA kernels or learn low-level GPU computing libraries.
Previous knowledge of MATLAB is not required for this webinar.
Please allow 60 minutes for the presentation and Q&A.
