    • 1. WebCL
      Tomi Aarnio
      NRC Cloud Computing Systems
      Jan 11, 2011
    • 2. Parallel computing for the Web
      Problem: Web apps cannot match native user experience
      JavaScript remains too slow for premium interactive apps
      Plug-ins are evil – especially when not available
      Solution: Access the CPU & GPU from JavaScript
      WebGL – emerging standard for graphics rendering on the GPU
      WebCL – our proposal for native execution on the CPU & GPU
      Native ”computing kernels” running in a secure sandbox
      Dramatic speedup over JavaScript
      Image processing: 10x faster on the CPU, 100x on the GPU
      Much faster than JavaScript even in the worst case
