Scale-invariant feature transform (SIFT) was an algorithm in computer vision to detect and describe local features in images. Due to its excellent performance, SIFT was widely used in many applications, but the implementation of SIFT was complicated and time-consuming. To solve this problem, this paper presented a novel acceleration algorithm for SIFT implementation based on Compute Unified Device Architecture (CUDA). In the algorithm, all the steps of SIFT were specifically distributed and implemented by CPU or GPU, accroding to the step’s characteristics or demandings, to make full use of computational resources. Experiments showed that compared with the traditional implementation of SIFT, this paper’s acceleration algorithm can greatly increase computation speed and save implementation time. Furthermore, the acceleration ratio had linear relation with the number of SIFT keypoints.

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.
