CBIR is the method of searching the digital images from an image database. "Content-based" means that the search analyzes the contents of the image rather than the metadata such as colours, shapes, textures, or any other information that can be derived from the image itself. The GPU is a powerful graphics engine and a highly parallel programmable processor having better efficiency and high speed that overshadows CPU. It is used in high performance computing system. The implementation of GPU can be done with CUDA C. Due to its highly parallel structure it is used in a number of real time applications like image processing, computational fluid mechanics, medical imaging etc. Graphical Processors Units (GPU) is more common in most image processing applications due to multithread execution of algorithms, programmability and low cost. In this paper, we are explaining the parallel implementation of CBIR with GPU. We have shown various stages of CBIR with GPU results into better performance as well as speed ups. We have given a review of various techniques that can be practised for high performance CBIR stages with Graphics Processing Units.

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.

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