GPU Computing for Data Science

24,072 views

Published on

When working with big data or complex algorithms, we often look to parallelize our code to optimize runtime. By taking advantage of a GPUs 1000+ cores, a data scientist can quickly scale out solutions inexpensively and sometime more quickly than using traditional CPU cluster computing. In this webinar, we will present ways to incorporate GPU computing to complete computationally intensive tasks in both Python and R.
