Look up Aaron Hsu's Ph.D thesis, _A data parallel compiler hosted on the
GPU_ (https://scholarworks.iu.edu/dspace/handle/2022/24749). As John (and
others) mention, I don't think the GPU is an especially interesting target
to speed up parsing specifically, but it may be a fruitful line of
inquiry. If so then that thesis is, as far as I can tell, the only
research that has been done so far; maybe you can make your own
experiments based on it.
