Abstract:

Jacket is a platform for data-parallel programming in MATLAB, Python,
and C/C++ using NVIDIA GPUs for acceleration.  The platform includes
libraries for matrix and array manipulation, linear algebra, signal
and image processing, and visualization.

The first part of the talk will highlight many of these features
through code examples.  The second part of the talk will detail some
of the design decisions in the underlying implementation.
