How did you become involved with GPUs - Intro to Parallel Programming

  • 0:00 - 0:03
    So tell us how you got involved in GPU's with the first place.
  • 0:03 - 0:06
    >> It goes way back; I was actually an undergrad.
  • 0:06 - 0:11
    I was working on some of the original SGI Octanes with OpenGL
  • 0:11 - 0:17
    and discovering that actually some of those OpenGL Octane machines for doing graphics--
  • 0:17 - 0:19
    you know, the kinds of image processing you do in OpenGL
  • 0:19 - 0:24
    could actually be used for simple computational things like fluid flow.
  • 0:24 - 0:29
    So 1 of my undergraduate theses was to study fluid flow and simulation
  • 0:29 - 0:32
    in the OpenGL pipeline on an old SGI Octane,
  • 0:32 - 0:35
    and then went on to Stanford, did a few other things but came back to it eventually
  • 0:35 - 0:37
    and that built a career out of it.
