Cinematch, Dinasour Planet, and finally Pragmatic Chaos –predicting what movie you might want to watch- is determining  60% of the movies being rented. Pragmatic Chaos got the 1 million dollar prize. Prize for reading what is in your brain. The above photo is from the ceremony in New York City. (20 Sept 2009) for more photos visit. On the other side of the equation we have companies like Epagogix. In their web site they define…

Integrating CUDA into a Large-Scale Commercial Database Management System Richard Wilton, Tamas Budavari, Alex Szalay – The Johns Hopkins University In a large-scale database installation where data tables are distributed across multiple servers, computational throughput can be optimized by using GPUs on each server and integrating database management with GPU resources. In the Department of Physics and Astronomy at The Johns Hopkins University, we are experimenting with a set of software tools that closely couple SQL statements…

Power Wall+ Memory Wall + ILP (Instruction level parallelism) Wall= Brick Wall There are two ways to scale speed by a factor x. Scale the number of (running) cores by x Power will scale by the same factor x Scale the clock frequency f and voltage V by x Dynamic power will scale by x to the power 3 (CV2f ) Static power will scale by x (Vileakage) Total power lies somewhere in between Clock scaling is worse…

Heart Surgery with Robot Arm Amazing video about new generation surgery. On other thing about this type of surgery is the computational power that is embeded in the operating unit. Actually the heart is still beating and the unit has the ability to display the beating heard as a still surface. This is just possible by Parallel Processing in the GPU. Pealing a Grape
