Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) are in the process of becoming a major source of computational power for numerical applications. Originally designed for application of time-consuming graphics operations, GPUs are stream processors that implement the SIMD paradigm. The true degree of parallelism of GPUs is often hidden from the user, making programming even more flexible and convenient. In this chapter we survey Genetic Programming methods currently ported to GPUs.
