Hi, i would like to ask is there a way to install CUDA for my M1 MacBook Pro (13-inch, M1, 2020) version 12 ?
I'm working on aproject on deep learning using Matlab, i've downloaded the MatConvNet library, and i have Xcode version 13.4.1, but i couldn't install CUDA because it shown that it is no longer supports Mac! any suggestions about how to fix this sitiuation? i need it for my MSc project.
thank you.

No, there is no way to install CUDA for any of the ARM-based Apple Systems -- not even through Rosetta 2 translation.
Last I heard, Mathworks had no plans to work on supporting GPU for ARM-based Apple systems: Apple is not supplying the computational libraries that would be necessary.
CUDA in particular is unlikely to ever be supported on ARM-based Apple Systems: NVIDIA has exited the Apple market, after years of disagreements with Apple.
Sorry, but you simply will not be able to use your M1 MacBook Pro for this purpose.

Hi Fatemah,
You might be interested in this blog article of ours: Exploring the MATLAB beta for Native Apple Silicon. This talks about how to run MATLAB on the M1 chips (beta!).
