Find: Samsung releases code of WebCL implementation for WebKit

Nvidia's Cuda for gpu accelerated general computing competes with open  standard opencl. Webgl permits browser apps to accelerate graphics using gpu. New standard webcl allows browser apps to accelerate non graphics apps with gpu.

Samsung releases code of WebCL implementation for WebKit







The WebCL standard is still a work in progress, but the first experimental implementations have already arrived. Samsung has opened the source code of its WebCL prototype for WebKit, which is designed to run on Mac OS X. The company has also published some videos that demonstrate the efficacy of WebCL in action.
WebCL—not to be confused with WebGL—is a new Web standard that is being devised by the Khronos group. It will provide JavaScript bindings for OpenCL, a framework that allows software to offload general-purpose computing operations to a GPU. The goal behind WebCL is to bring OpenCL to the Web—making it possible for sophisticated Web applications to significantly accelerate computationally intensive workloads.
