From a sage code parallelized with map_reduce, what should be done for the computation to use a GPU (for high performance computing)?

I don't think GPU are tailored for those kind of computation. That is GPU are mostly designed to do embarasingly parallel (ie: flat) number crunching, whereas the map reduce I wrote in Sage solve highly recursive parallel problem. Those are very different kinds of problems which need very different load balancing algorithms.
