ABSTRACT
Modern GPUs offer much computing power at a very modest cost.
Even though CUDA and other related recent developments are ac-
celerating the use of GPUs for general purpose applications, sev-
eral challenges still remain in programming the GPUs. Thus, it is
clearly desirable to be able to program GPUs using a higher-level
interface.
In this paper, we offer a solution that targets a specific class of
applications, which are the data mining and scientific data analysis
applications. Our work is driven by the observation that a com-
mon processing structure, that of generalized reductions, fits a large
number of popular data mining algorithms. In our solution, the pro-
grammers simply need to specify the sequential reduction loop(s)
