ISODATA is a well-known clustering algorithm based on the nearest neighbor rule, which has been widely used in various areas. It employs a heuristic strategy allowing the clusters to split and merge as appropriate. However, since the volume of the data to be clustered in the real world is growing continuously, the efficiency of the serial ISODATA has become a serious practical issue. The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is an emerging high performance computing platform due to its highly parallel multithreaded architecture. In this paper, we propose an efficient parallel ISODATA algorithm based on the latest Kepler GPUs and the dynamic parallelism feature in CUDA (Compute Unified Device Architecture). Performance study shows that our parallel ISODATA can achieve promising speedup ratios and features favorable scalability compared to the original algorithm.

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 12.2
  • SDK: 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.
