CMUSV Designated CUDA Research Center

Carnegie Mellon University's Silicon Valley (CMUSV) campus received the designation of CUDA Research Center from NVIDIA for research in applying GPUs to challenging research problems in Machine Learning. CMUSV was selected based on the vision, quality, and impact of its research-leveraging CUDA technology.

The CMU Silicon Valley campus CUDA Research Center will focus on application-driven research in computer science and engineering. Its goal is to advance the state-of-the-art in machine learning for human-centric computing, focusing on core technologies such as speech recognition, natural language processing and computer vision, and developing novel applications that will have impact in the real-world such as real-time speech translation, intelligent interactive systems and multimedia search.

The principle investigators of this research center, professors Ian Lane and Jike Chong, have published more than 60 papers, book chapters, and patents in the above research areas, and have supported their research with funded grants from NSF, DARPA and industry.

“The CUDA Research Center designation creates a synergistic environment that will attract additional interest to investigate and demonstrate the effectiveness of CUDA for real-world applications,” said Chong. He added, “With the consistent presence of the HPC and GPU Supercomputing Group monthly meetings on campus, CMUSV is quickly developing prestige and identity in parallel computing research in Silicon Valley.”

“This is great news,” said Professor Lane about the CRC designation, “Carnegie Mellon Silicon Valley is now one of only three institutes in the US that have been designated as both CUDA Teaching and Research centers. Over the past six months we have received six designations and grants in the area of high-throughput computing to support our research efforts.”
