NVIDIA Powers Not One, But Two, Gordon Bell Prizes

Award-winning research on opioid addiction and climate change fueled by NVIDIA researchers and tens of thousands of NVIDIA GPUs. There was a big surprise at the highly anticipated awards ceremony at SC18, the annual supercomputing show in Dallas this week. Usually, one team of researchers receives the coveted Gordon Bell Prize, the equivalent of an “Oscar” in the world of high performance computing. But this year, that didn’t happen. In a rare move, the award committee split the prize — honoring one team for its groundbreaking research on opioid addiction and another for breakthrough discoveries in climate change.
