Schedule:Mon 19th@09:00, Room: A

GPUs were initially developed for solving real time graphics pipeline. Due to their massively parallel architectures and the creation of a unified architecture, they became an important alternative for high performance computing. Modern GPUs have more than 3000 cores and may achieve up to 7TFlops, which is dozens of times the amount of a CPU based architecture. This talk will briefly show the hardware architecture of a modern GPU, will discuss about trends and the future of the next generation of GPUs and will present how different areas are being enhanced by this technologies, such as video-games, deep-learning and self-driving cars.

Short Biography Esteban Walter Gonzalez Clua graduated in Computer Science at Universidade de São Paulo and has Master's and PhD degree in Computer Science. He has experience in Computer Science and has been active in the following subjects: game engine architectures, 3D games, GPU Computing, education with games, real time computer graphics and digital entertainment. Today Esteban is associate professor in computer science of Universidade Federal Fluminense, in Rio de Janeiro, and director of UFF Medialab. Esteban is one of the founders of SBGames - Brazilian Symposium of Digital Entertainment and Video Games (the largest conference in the subject in South America), president of the Brazilian Computing Society Game Committee and member of program committees of many conferences in Video Games. In 2007 he received the prize of the personality which most contributed for the growth of the video game industry in Brazil and in 2009 and 2013 received the prize of Young Scientist of the State of Rio de Janeiro. Esteban is the coordinator of the first Latin America NVIdia Center of Excelence, which is in UFF Medialab and is a NVIDIA Fellow professor.
