High performance computing for massively parallel simulations of animal group behavior

Posted by in Uncategorized 2 comments

We develop our massively parallel simulation models of animal group behavior using General Purpose Graphics Processing Units (GPGPUs) and NVIDIA’s CUDA programming architecture (and sometimes OpenCL). This high performance computing environment allows us to harness thousands of processing cores allowing us to simulate millions of interacting individuals in complex environments as well as to explore […]
