Matching patches of a source image with patches of itself or a target image is a first step for many operations. Finding the optimum nearest-neighbors of each patch using a global search of the image is expensive. Optimality is often sacrificed for speed as a result. We present the Mixed-Resolution Patch-Matching (MRPM) algorithm that uses a pyramid representation to perform fast global search. We compare mixed- resolution patches at coarser pyramid levels to alleviate the ects of smoothing. We store more matches at coarser resolutions to ensure wider search ranges and better accuracy at finer levels. Our method achieves near optimality in terms of average error compared to exhaustive search. Our approach is simple compared to complex trees or hash tables used by others. This enables fast parallel implementations on the GPU, yielding upto 70x speedup compared to other iterative approaches. Our approach is best suited when multiple, global matches are needed.

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
