Video: Erlang and CUDA – Concurrent and Fast

[vimeo w=508&h=381]

In this video, Kevin Smith from Opscode provide a brief introduction to CUDA and shows how to integrate CUDA-enabled code with Erlang.

Erlang is ideal for writing robust highly concurrent applications which take full advantage of today’s multi-core computers. NVIDIA’s CUDA API is great for using GPUs to rip through large datasets at incredible speeds. What happens when you put these two together?
