ResTech Lunch & Learn: Parallel Computing with MATLAB

Tue, 03/11/2020 - 12:00 to 13:00

Learn how you can use the Parallel Computing Toolbox and MATLAB Parallel Server to speed up MATLAB applications by using the desktop and cluster computing hardware you already have. You will learn how minimal programming efforts can speed up your applications on widely available desktop systems equipped with multicore processors and GPUs, and how to continue scaling your speed up with a computer cluster.

Specifically, we’ll review how to:

  • Transition from serial to parallel MATLAB programs
  • Execute MATLAB applications on a multicore or multiprocessor workstation
  • Speed up algorithms using parallel FOR loops
  • Execute MATLAB applications on a computing cluster
  • Accelerate MATLAB algorithms using a graphics processing unit (GPU)
