CrowdCL: Web-based volunteer computing with WebCL

  title={CrowdCL: Web-based volunteer computing with WebCL},
  author={Tommy MacWilliam and Cris Cecka},
  journal={2013 IEEE High Performance Extreme Computing Conference (HPEC)},
We present CrowdCL, an open-source framework for the rapid development of volunteer computing and OpenCL applications on the web. Drawing inspiration from existing GPU libraries like PyCUDA, CrowdCL provides an abstraction layer for WebCL aimed at reducing boilerplate and improving code readability. CrowdCL also provides developers with a framework to easily run computations in the background of a web page, which allows developers to distribute computations across a network of clients and… CONTINUE READING
