In this paper, a research about the usability, advantages and disadvantages of using Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA) is presented, implementing an algorithm based on populations called Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) [5]. In order to test the performance of the proposed algorithm, a hide watermark image application is put into practice. The PSO is used to optimize the positions where a watermark has to be inserted. This application uses the insertion/extraction algorithm proposed by Shieh et al. [1]. This algorithm was implemented for both sequential and CUDA architectures. The fitness function-used in the optimization algorithm – has two objectives: fidelity and robustness. The measurement of fidelity and robustness is computed using Mean Squared Error (MSE) and Normalized Correlation (NC), respectively; these functions are evaluated using Pareto dominance.

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: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • 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: AMD APP SDK 2.9
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.2
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.0.1, AMD APP SDK 2.9

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.
