Data processing using GPUs - Wednesday, December 01, 2010
I have created a webpage including many useful resources about utilizing the computational power of GPUs in database and information retrieval.
I will keep updating this webpage regularly with relevant articles, links, training and informative videos. 
I hope this webpage will serve as a useful resource for those who are new to GPGPU and are willing to know more about its applications in data processing.
You can access this webpage from here.
