Julia Taiwan 第二十五次 meetup 及 Julia's Knights 聯合活動

國外 Julia 核心開發者 Katharine Hyatt 邀請演講


A tour of GPGPU and Julia

Julia claims to solve the so-called "two-language problem", allowing programmers to use high level constructs and enjoy expressive, straightforward syntax without sacrificing performance. Can we achieve this promise for general purpose GPU programming, which has often required either lots of opaque boilerplate code or writing functions which look like language chimeras? I'll give an introduction to a few parts of Julia's GPU ecosystem, especially CuArrays.jl and the native Julia CUDA kernel writing system, with some examples of how we can write performant code which is still readable. Finally, I'll present some directions we're currently working on which provide opportunities for new contributors.
