GPU Computing: The Key to Unleashing the Mysteries of All That Data

To effectively handle all the data being created in the world today, we need GPU computing. To harness this goldmine of data, artificial intelligence and machine learning has emerged, which uses algorithms to train data to find patterns. The problem is, traditional CPUs (central processing units)...
