CUDA & GPU For Security & Forensics

This article must hold the world record for the longest time taken to write.

The CPU instructed the FPGA to make certain calculations and apply certain fi lters not statically according to some arcane policy but dynamically as processing continued. I won’t be as bold to suggest it was AI, it certainly wasn’t but it could do very necessary things that other products still struggle to do.
