    Programming in Parallel with CUDA

    My new book “Programming in Parallel with CUDA – A Practical Guide” was born out of the excitement I feel about computing with GPUs.  I have always had passion for science and computer programming.  I wrote my first program in 1964 for the Cambridge EDSAC II computer using a Fortran like programming language. Since then, […]

    Algorithms Reaching into Society, our Bodies and our Brain

    Just a few years ago, who would have thought that algorithms would be regularly making important decisions once made by humans, and they would be so complex that we would not be able to fully understand how they made their decisions (even though we rely on their decisions in life-threatening situations). And further, that algorithms […]

    Living in the Algorithmic Age

    Algorithms are sometimes compared to cathedrals, in that they share the same ambition, and the same folly. Some algorithms, such as telephone operating systems, data management systems, or search engines, are huge objects involving the contributions of thousands of people. With algorithms, Homo sapiens has finally created a tool equal to its aspirations. Why do […]

    Data Assimilation in Every Day Life

    Computer generated forecasts play an important role in our daily lives, for example, predicting weather or economies.  Forecasts combine computational models of relevant dynamical processes with measured data. Errors are always present through incomplete observations plus imperfections in the model, so forecasts must be constantly calibrated with new data. In the geosciences, this is called […]
