Can OpenCV use the same GPU as the OS desktop?

asked 2019-11-10 19:18:02 -0500

If a video card is already in use to display a desktop, does this mean it can or cannot be used by OpenCV and/or CUDA?

I suspect the GPU is a all-or-nothing dedicated resource, where it can either be used to display the operating system desktop, or be used for image processing (ML, OpenCV, etc) but probably cannot multitask both like a CPU can multitask between different applications.

In case it matters, my OS is Ubuntu Linux.

It can be shared amongst various executable files at once.
