DARPA looks to GPUs to help process big data in the military

The US defence agency is appealing for developers to re-purpose XDATA cloud for military decision-making

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is looking to GPUs to help them master big data in support of governmental and military efforts.

Chris White, project manager at DARPA, told attendees at the GPU Technology Conference the agency is looking for people to help them understand real-world battlefields using GPUs.

DARPA has more than a dozen data science projects on the go, but at present, only two of them use GPUs – one of which is the agency’s XDATA cloud, which develops ways to process and analyse large data sets.
