Adam McLaughlin, PhD student at Georgia Tech shares how he is using NVIDIA Tesla GPUs for his research on Betweenness Centrality – a graph analytics algorithm that tracks the most important vertices within a network. This can be applied to a broad range of applications, such as finding the head of a crime ring or determining the best location for a store within a city.
Using a cluster of GPUs for his research, Adam is able to scale his graphs to several million vertices which he says would most likely not be possible without accelerators.
