If you're reading about machine learning, you're probably hearing a lot about the uses of graphics processing units or GPUs in machine learning projects, often as an alternative to central processing units or CPUs. GPUs are used for machine learning because of specific properties that make them better matched to machine learning projects, especially those that require a lot of parallel processing, or in other words, simultaneous processing of multiple threads.
