Analyzing CUDA workloads using a detailed GPU simulator

Modern graphic processing units (GPUs) provide sufficiently flexible programming models that understanding their performance can provide insight in designing tomorrow’s manycore processors, whether those are GPUs or otherwise. The combination of multiple, multithreaded, SIMD cores makes studying these GPUs useful in understanding tradeoffs among memory, data, and thread level parallelism. While modern GPUs offer orders […]

CUDA compatible GPU cards as efficient hardware accelerators for Smith-Waterman sequence alignment

BACKGROUND:Searching for similarities in protein and DNA databases has become a routine procedure in Molecular Biology. The Smith-Waterman algorithm has been available for more than 25 years. It is based on a dynamic programming approach that explores all the possible alignments between two sequences; as a result it returns the optimal local alignment. Unfortunately, the […]

cuInspiral: prototype gravitational waves detection pipeline fully coded on GPU using CUDA

In this paper we report the prototype of the first coalescing binary detection pipeline fully implemented on NVIDIA GPU hardware accelerators. The code has been embedded in a GPU library, called cuInspiral and has been developed under CUDA framework. The library contains for example a PN gravitational wave signal generator, matched filtering/FFT and detection algorithms […]

Matched Filter Computation on FPGA, Cell and GPU

The matched filter is an important kernel in the processing of hyperspectral data. The filter enables researchers to sift useful data from instruments that span large frequency bands and can produce Gigabytes of data in seconds. In this work, we evaluate the performance of a matched filter algorithm implementation on an FPGA-accelerated co-processor (Cray XD-1), […]

Automatic Dynamic Task Distribution between CPU and GPU for Real-Time Systems

The increase of computational power of programmable GPU (graphics processing unit) brings new concepts for using these devices for generic processing. Hence, with the use of the CPU and the GPU for data processing come new ideas that deals with distribution of tasks among CPU and GPU, such as automatic distribution. The importance of the […]

An improved scheme of an interactive finite element model for 3D soft-tissue cutting and deformation

As a safe and feasible alternative to enriching and enhancing traditional surgical training, virtual-reality-based surgical simulators have been investigated for a long time. But it is still a challenge for researchers to accurately depict the behavior of human tissue without losing the flexibility of simulation. In this paper, we propose an improved scheme of an […]

A hybrid condensed finite element model with GPU acceleration for interactive 3D soft tissue cutting

To meet the requirement of computer-aided medical operations, apart from the real-time deformation, it is also necessary in the design to simulate the tissue cutting and suturing in a surgery simulation. In this paper, we present a model on topology change and deformation of soft tissue, referred to as the hybrid condensed finite element model, […]

A Generic and Scalable Pipeline for GPU Tetrahedral Grid Rendering

Recent advances in algorithms and graphics hardware have opened the possibility to render tetrahedral grids at interactive rates on commodity PCs. This paper extends on this work in that it presents a direct volume rendering method for such grids which supports both current and upcoming graphics hardware architectures, large and deformable grids, as well as […]

Radial Basis Function Networks GPU-Based Implementation

Neural networks (NNs) have been used in several areas, showing their potential but also their limitations. One of the main limitations is the long time required for the training process; this is not useful in the case of a fast training process being required to respond to changes in the application domain. A possible way […]

GIST: an interactive, GPU-based level set segmentation tool for 3D medical images

While level sets have demonstrated a great potential for 3D medical image segmentation, their usefulness has been limited by two problems. First, 3D level sets are relatively slow to compute. Second, their formulation usually entails several free parameters which can be very difficult to correctly tune for specific applications. The second problem is compounded by […]
