Sitchinava awarded $400K by NSF to research provably efficient GPU algorithms

Assistant Professor Nodari Sitchinava has received a grant in the amount of $400,000 over four years from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The award is part of the joint $800,000 project with New York University to study the algorithmic aspects of GPU computing and to develop a simple but accurate theoretical model for GPUs. The project aims to develop and implement algorithms that will improve the state of the art code base of general purpose computation on GPUs in the areas of combinatorial algorithms, computational geometry, visualization, search algorithms, and data structures.

The project is funded through the NSF’s “Algorithms in the Field” program.
