We have launched “GPU4EO Challenge” an initiative which involves students, researchers and professionals in a challenge aimed to improving the performance of EO processing using the capacity of GPUs (graphics processing units). Teams are asked to use and process EO data (tipically satellite data) in NVIDIA k40 GPU by DORIS, an open source software, to obtain the best performances (fast processing time).
A global amount of € 5,000, as well as other awards and honors, will be assigned to winner teams.
The subscription is open until June 2, 2015.
