Improving the Performance of OpenCL-based FPGA Accelerator for Convolutional Neural Network

OpenCL FPGA has recently gained great popularity with emerging needs for workload acceleration such as Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), which is the most popular deep learning architecture in the domain of computer vision. While OpenCL enhances the code portability and programmability of FPGA, it comes at the expense of performance. The key challenge is to […]

liquidSVM: A Fast and Versatile SVM package

liquidSVM is a package written in C++ that provides SVM-type solvers for various classification and regression tasks. Because of a fully integrated hyper-parameter selection, very carefully implemented solvers, multi-threading and GPU support, and several built-in data decomposition strategies it provides unprecedented speed for small training sizes as well as for data sets of tens of […]

Is GPGPU CCL worth it? A performance comparison between some GPU and CPU algorithms for solving connected components labeling on binary images

Connected component labeling (CCL) is a traditionally sequential problem that is hard to parallelize. This report aims to test the performance of solving CCL using massively parallel hardware through GPGPU. To achieve this several CCL algorithms were researched and implemented using C++ and OpenCL. The results showed an improvement of up to a factor of […]

Large-Scale Stochastic Learning using GPUs

In this work we propose an accelerated stochastic learning system for very large-scale applications. Acceleration is achieved by mapping the training algorithm onto massively parallel processors: we demonstrate a parallel, asynchronous GPU implementation of the widely used stochastic coordinate descent/ascent algorithm that can provide up to 35x speed-up over a sequential CPU implementation. In order […]

First Experiences Optimizing Smith-Waterman on Intel’s Knights Landing Processor

The well-known Smith-Waterman (SW) algorithm is the most commonly used method for local sequence alignments. However, SW is very computationally demanding for large protein databases. There exist several implementations that take advantage of computing parallelization on many-cores, FPGAs or GPUs, in order to increase the alignment throughtput. In this paper, we have explored SW acceleration […]

Dynamic Buffer Overflow Detection for GPGPUs

Buffer overflows are a common source of program crashes, data corruption, and security problems. In this work, we demonstrate that GPU-based workloads can also cause buffer overflows, a problem that was traditionally ignored because CPUs and GPUs had separate memory spaces. Modern GPUs share virtual, and sometimes physical, memory with CPUs, meaning that GPU-based buffer […]

MCBooster: a library for fast Monte Carlo generation of phase-space decays on massively parallel platforms

MCBooster is a header-only, C++11-compliant library that provides routines to generate and perform calculations on large samples of phase space Monte Carlo events. To achieve superior performance, MCBooster is capable to perform most of its calculations in parallel using CUDA- and OpenMP-enabled devices. MCBooster is built on top of the Thrust library and runs on […]

A 7.663-TOPS 8.2-W Energy-efficient FPGA Accelerator for Binary Convolutional Neural Networks

FPGA-based hardware accelerators for convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have obtained great attentions due to their higher energy efficiency than GPUs. However, it is challenging for FPGA-based solutions to achieve a higher throughput than GPU counterparts. In this paper, we demonstrate that FPGA acceleration can be a superior solution in terms of both throughput and energy […]

Efficient Large-scale Approximate Nearest Neighbor Search on the GPU

We present a new approach for efficient approximate nearest neighbor (ANN) search in high dimensional spaces, extending the idea of Product Quantization. We propose a two-level product and vector quantization tree that reduces the number of vector comparisons required during tree traversal. Our approach also includes a novel highly parallelizable re-ranking method for candidate vectors […]

Blocking Self-avoiding Walks Stops Cyber-epidemics: A Scalable GPU-based Approach

Cyber-epidemics, the widespread of fake news or propaganda through social media, can cause devastating economic and political consequences. A common countermeasure against cyber-epidemics is to disable a small subset of suspected social connections or accounts to effectively contain the epidemics. An example is the recent shutdown of 125,000 ISIS-related Twitter accounts. Despite many proposed methods […]

A Survey of Soft-Error Mitigation Techniques for Non-Volatile Memories

Non-volatile memories (NVMs) offer superior density and energy characteristics compared to the conventional memories; however, NVMs suffer from severe reliability issues that can easily eclipse their energy efficiency advantages. In this paper, we survey architectural techniques for improving the soft-error reliability of NVMs, specifically PCM (phase change memory) and STT-RAM (spin transfer torque RAM). We […]
