Supercomputing has swept rapidly from the far edges of science to the heart of our everyday lives. And propelling it forward آ— bringing it into the mobile phone already in your pocket and the car in your driveway آ— is GPU acceleration, NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang told a packed house at a rollicking event kicking off this week’s SC15 annual supercomputing show in Austin, Texas. The event draws 10,000 researchers, national lab directors and others from around the world.

"Supercomputing technology is in the process of extending well beyond supercomputing itself," Huang said, dressed in his trademark black leather jacket, speaking to a largely standing crowd. "These advancements are in the process of revolutionizing consumer applications, cloud services, the auto industry and autonomous machines."
