Image reconstruction is a process of obtaining the original image from corrupted data. Applications of image reconstruction include Computer Tomography, radar imaging, weather forecasting etc. Recently steering kernel regression method has been applied for image reconstruction [1]. There are two major drawbacks in this technique. Firstly, it is computationally intensive. Secondly, output of the algorithm suffers form spurious edges (especially in case of denoising). We propose a modified version of Steering Kernel Regression called as Median Based Parallel Steering Kernel Regression Technique. In the proposed algorithm the first problem is overcome by implementing it in on GPUs and multi-cores. The second problem is addressed by a gradient based suppression in which median filter is used. Our algorithm gives better output than that of the Steering Kernel Regression. The results are compared using Root Mean Square Error(RMSE). Our algorithm has also shown a speedup of 21x using GPUs and shown speedup of 6x using multi-cores.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.5.14, AMD APP SDK 3.0
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.3
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 3.0

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
