Abstract

A Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) is a processor deemed as a complete replacement of CPUs for intensive computational purposes. Due to the constant improvements in speed and number of flops, GPUs have led to many technological breakthroughs in medical research, database enhancement, military computations, etc. With GPUs being used more and more in our day-to-day life for general purpose computations, the role they play on our society have become significant. This project is pertaining to the societal impacts of GPUs.
