I am working with a friend on a master's project. Our laboratory does a 
lot of statistical analysis using the R stats package and we also have a 
lot of under-utilised nvidia cards sitting in the back of our networked 
linux machines. Our idea is to coerce the linux nvidia driver to run 
some of our statistical analysis for us. Our first thought was to 
specifically code up a version of glm() to run on the nvidia cards...

Thinking that this might be of use to the broader community we thought 
we might ask for feedback before starting?

Any ideas...
