The History of Visual Magic in Computers: How Beautiful Images are Made in CAD, 3D, VR and AR

• Tags:

Jon Peddie from Jon Peddie Research has published a new book "The History of Visual Magic in Computers: How Beautiful Images are Made in CAD, 3D, VR and AR." If you have ever looked at a fantastic adventure or science fiction movie, or an amazingly complex and rich computer game, or a TV commercial where cars or gas pumps or biscuits behaved liked people and wondered, “How do they do that?”, then you’ve experienced the magic of 3D worlds generated by a computer. This book will guide you through the history of how this came about and show you a little about how it's all done. Dr. Jon Peddie is one of the pioneers of the graphics industry and was recently named one of the most influential analysts.

Harlan targets complexity for GPGPU programming and compiles to OpenCL

• Tags:

HPC programmers who are tired of managing low-level details when using OpenCL or CUDA to write general purpose applications for GPUs (GPGPU) may be interested in Harlan, a new declarative programming language designed to mask the complexity and eliminate errors common in GPGPU application development. The idea with Harlan is to keep developers focused on the high-level HPC programming challenge at hand, instead of getting bogged down with the nitty gritty details of GPU development and optimization. Harlan's syntax is based on the language Scheme, and compiles to Khronos Group's OpenCL.
