Abstract

The demands placed on systems to analyse corpus data increase with input size, and the traditional approaches to processing this data are increasingly having impractical run-times. We show that the use of desktop GPUs presents a significant opportunity to accelerate a number of stages in the normal corpus analysis pipeline. This paper contains our exploratory work and findings into applying high-performance computing technology and methods to the problem of sorting large numbers of concordance lines.
