OpenCL Group in Linkedin

I find important sharing information among people using OpenCL. Recently, I joined to OpenCL group in Linkedin. Some discussions and points of view that you'll find there:
  1. the lack of domain specific libraries compared to CUDA, for instance. However, AMD has released stuff like http://developer.amd.com/libraries/appmathlibs/Pages/default.aspx. Anyway, we should have always in mind that OpenCL is younger than CUDA.
  2. questions about why use OpenCL in environments without GPUs were answered by people arguing about the unknown user space (where your app will run) and stuff like http://www.khronos.org/developers/library/2010_siggraph_bof_opencl/OpenCL-BOF-Intel-SIGGRAPH-Jul10.pdf that points the direction of applications implemented on Intel's SDK.
The group is open and some helpful and qualified helpful members are creating interesting discussions.
