Brad Hittle at Progetto “RIESCO” Challenge GPU4EO 2015

Earlier this month, I traveled to Bari, Italy, to deliver a pair of presentations, including the keynote address, at Progetto “RIESCO” Challenge GPU4EO 2015. The event showcased solutions to improve the performance of software used to process remotely sensed data through the use of GPUs (graphics processing units). In this article, I summarize my talk, “GPU applications for scientific computation, training and visualization.” I focus on several examples of how we’ve leveraged GPU computing in the Interface Laboratory at the Ohio Supercomputer Center (OSC).

Over the past five years, I have had the privilege of working with the Summer Institute program at the Ohio Supercomputer Center. Summer Institute, SI for short, is “a two-week residential program that gives gifted Ohio high school students project-based, hands-on learning,” and each year is a unique experience for both myself and the students who participate in this program.
