DATE :  Tuesday, August 20th, 2013   ABSTRACT : 
Graphics Processing Units (GPUs)  have transformed the way parallel processing is done. Instead of small number of powerful processors, hundreds or even thousands of simple ones are assembled on a single chip. Originally designed to process individual pixels in graphical applications, GPUs are now harnessed to address hitherto insoluble problems in medical instruments and imaging, defense and surveillance, autonomous vehicles, sensory computing, manufacturing design and simulation, and seismic geology. The talk will be relevant to entrepreneurs who are looking fort the "next big thing" and to investors who may be thinking of the future mega trends
