The centerpiece of UF's AI initiative is the most powerful university-owned supercomputer in the U.S., which was made possible by the generosity of NVIDIA and NVIDIA co-founder and UF alumnus Chris Malachowsky.
NVIDIA is the world leader in the development of processors that were originally designed for displaying realistic graphics. These processors are called GPU for graphics processor units. It was then found that these GPUs are also great for advanced scientific simulation and more recently that they are even better at performing the computing for AI tools and algorithms.
