Webinar on April 8th: Geospatial 3D Visualization in the Cloud with GPUs

April 2nd, 2014

This webinar covers how Geoweb3d uses the GPU for real-time geospatial 3D visualization, modeling, and analytics. Geoweb3D will demonstrate how native, high resolution datasets including GIS, CAD, 3D Models, LIDAR, and FMV are fused together in real-time with game quality graphics and pixel accurate analysis. The 3D engine uses a GPU resident mesh that adapts to any resolution data on the fly eliminating the need to preprocess any data prior to real-time use. Demonstration will include Geoweb3d Mobile which now uses HTML5 for use on any device in the cloud including phones and tablets.

Webinar: Accelerating Full Waveform Inversion via OpenCL on AMD GPUs

February 26th, 2014

On March 5 at 11:00am (PST), Acceleware hosts a webinar on accelerating a seismic algorithm on a cluster of AMD GPU compute nodes. The presentation will begin with an outline of the full waveform inversion (FWI) algorithm, followed by an introduction to OpenCL. The OpenCL programming model and memory spaces will be introduced. Strategies for formulating the problem to take advantage of the massively parallel GPU architecture, and key optimizations techniques are discussed including coalescing and an iterative approach to handle the slices. Performance results for the GPU are compared to the CPU run times. Click here to register.

Webinar: HOOMD-blue for Polymer Simulations and Big Systems

January 15th, 2014

This webinar will demonstrate how real-world computational research in soft matter physics can be accelerated on a GPU-equipped desktop computer with the HOOMD-blue molecular dynamics software. A presentation of how to set up a simulation of a dense polymer liquid, and how to analyze and visualize the results is provided. There will be a demonstration of how self-assembled ordered structures of block copolymers emerge out of an initially disordered configuration. With external potentials, an artificially ordered phase can be produced as well. HOOMD-blue’s easy-to-use scripting interface and plug-ins are used to create a productive work-flow and extend its capabilities. As an advanced topic, there will be a discussion of how the upcoming version of HOOMD-blue can be used on compute clusters running on ten to hundreds of GPUs in parallel, to boost simulations of long polymer chains or large-scale systems.

January 21, 2014, 11:00 a.m. EST, Registration required.
