Does AMD OpenCL work with Intel HD 4000 as a GPU device

I have a laptop which comes with Intel HD 4000 graphics. I am running Ubuntu 12.04. With this configuration, I figured that AMD OpenCL SDK will work. Now, when I ran some opencl examples that come with the AMD OpenCL SDK, the SDK used the CPU, because no GPU device could be recognized.

The System Details screen shows "Graphics Intel® Ivybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2". Running lspci shows:

$lspci -nnk | grep -iA3 vga
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor
Graphics Controller [8086:0166] (rev 09)
  Subsystem: Lenovo Device [17aa:2208]
  Kernel driver in use: i915
  Kernel modules: i915

I believe that this confirms that Intel HD 4000 is working on my machine. But I am not sure why it is not being recognized by the opencl examples as a GPU device. Please help.

Thank you.
