Recognized by Nvidia


Just recently, Nvidia formerly announced that Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts has been recognized as a CUDA Center of Excellence for its commitment to teaching GPU computing and its integration of CUDA-enabled GPUs for a host of science and engineering research projects.

The honor serves as a complement to a two million dollar grant the university received from the National Science Foundation in the US for its effort to teach GPU-enabled computing and for the use of CUDA-enabled GPUs in various science and engineering research projects.

"With interest in the Compute Unified Device Architecture spreading rapidly across the Harvard campus and the lively scientific landscape in Boston, there has never been a better time to announce this partnership," said Hanspeter Pfister, a professor in Harvard's School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Director of Visual Computing at the Harvard Initiative in Innovative Computing. "This generous gift from NVIDIA will provide excellent learning opportunities for Harvard students, accelerate our research and expand the use of GPUs for computing in science and other advanced applications."

To date, Harvard has harnessed GPU power for decoding the intricate structure of the human brain with the Connectome project, studying the outer realms of the universe with the MWA telescope project and studying the quantum chemistry of molecules with the Qchem project.
