CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture) is a parallel computing platform and API developed by NVIDIA for using GPUs as general-purpose processors. It allows developers to write programs for GPUs, and it provides libraries and tools to optimize performance and portability. CUDA supports a wide range of applications, including machine learning, computer vision, scientific simulation, and gaming. The technology allows to speed up computationally intensive tasks by running them on GPUs, resulting in significant performance improvements compared to traditional CPU-only processing. CUDA has become a widely used technology in the field of high-performance computing.
