Harvard joins Taiwan U, U of Utah, and UIUC as the company’s latest CUDA Center of Excellence

nVidia logoNVIDIA Corporation, inventor of the GPU, today announced that Harvard University has been recognized as a CUDA Center of Excellence for its commitment to teaching GPU Computing and its integration of CUDA™-enabled GPUs for a host of science and engineering research projects. The honor complements a prior $2M grant the University received from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for the development of GPU-enabled computational science.

…“With interest in the CUDA architecture spreading rapidly across the Harvard campus and the lively scientific landscape in Boston, there has never been a better time to announce this partnership,” said Hanspeter Pfister, Gordon McKay Professor of the Practice of Computer Science in Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Director of Visual Computing at the Harvard Initiative in Innovative Computing. “This generous gift from NVIDIA will provide excellent learning opportunities for Harvard students, accelerate our research and expand the use of GPUs for computing in science and other advanced applications.”
