Build real-world applications by writing effective GPU code, CUDA kernels, and device functions with the latest features of Python 3.7, CUDA 9 and CUDA 10

Key Features

  • Expand your background in GPU programming PyCUDA, scikit-cuda, and Nsight
  • Effectively use CUDA libraries such as cuBLAS, cuFFT, and cuSolver
  • Apply GPU programming to modern data science applications

Book Description

Hands-On GPU Programming with Python and CUDA hits the ground running: you ll start by learning how to apply Amdahl s Law, use a code profiler to identify bottlenecks in your Python code, and set up an appropriate GPU programming environment. You ll then see how to query the GPU s features and copy arrays of data to and from the GPU s own memory.

As you make your way through the book, you ll launch code directly onto the GPU and write full blown GPU kernels and device functions in CUDA C. You ll get to grips with profiling GPU code effectively and fully test and debug your code using Nsight IDE. Next, you ll explore some of the more well-known NVIDIA libraries, such as cuFFT and cuBLAS.

With a solid background in place, you will now apply your new-found knowledge to develop your very own GPU-based deep neural network from scratch. You ll then explore advanced topics, such as warp shuffling, dynamic parallelism, and PTX assembly. In the final chapter, you ll see some topics and applications related to GPU programming that you may wish to pursue, including AI, graphics, and blockchain.

By the end of this book, you will be able to apply GPU programming to problems related to data science and high-performance computing.
