This presentation will provide a brief high level overview of Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) computing with a focus on application to image processing. The talk will begin with a discussion of the fundamentals of the GPU architecture, the major hardware components, and what is unique about the GPU approach to parallel processing. We next discuss how a programmer or scientist accesses the GPU through software and discuss some of the advantages the GPU offers for image processing tasks.
