Parallel implementation of a spatio-temporal visual saliency model

The human vision has been studied deeply in the past years, and several different models have been proposed to simulate it on computer. Some of these models concerns visual saliency which is potentially very interesting in a lot of applications like robotics, image analysis, compression, video indexing. Unfortunately they are compute intensive with tight real-time […]

Real-time multi-agent path planning on arbitrary surfaces

Path planning is an active topic in the literature, and efficient navigation over non-planar surfaces is an open research question. In this work we present a novel technique for navigation of multiple agents over arbitrary triangular domains. The proposed solution uses a fast hierarchical computation of geodesic distances over triangular meshes to allow interactive frame […]

Real-time path-based surface detail

We present a GPU algorithm to render path-based 3D surface detail in real-time. Our method models these features using a vector representation that is efficiently stored in two textures. First texture is used to specify the position of the features, while the second texture contains their paths, profiles and material information. A fragment shader is […]

Performance Analysis of General-Purpose Computation on Commodity Graphics Hardware: A Case Study Using Bioinformatics

Using modern graphics processing units for no-graphics high performance computing is motivated by their enhanced programmability, attractive cost/performance ratio and incredible growth in speed. Although the pipeline of a modern graphics processing unit (GPU) permits high throughput and more concurrency, they bring more complexities in analyzing the performance of GPU-based applications. In this paper, we […]

Implementation of a High Throughput Soft MIMO Detector on GPU

Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) significantly increases the throughput of a communication system by employing multiple antennas at the transmitter and the receiver. To extract maximum performance from a MIMO system, a computationally intensive search based detector is needed. To meet the challenge of MIMO detection, typical suboptimal MIMO detectors are ASIC or FPGA designs. We aim […]

GPU Acceleration for General Conservation Equations and its Application to several Engineering Problems

Presented is a general method for conservation equations called SHLL (split HLL) applied using Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) acceleration. The SHLL method is a purely vector-split approximation of the classical HLL method [Harten, Lax and van Leer, 1983] which assumes the presence of local wave propagation in the algabraic derivation of fluxes across cell surfaces. […]

GPU-based physical cut in interactive haptic simulations

PURPOSE: Interactive, physics based, simulations of deformable bodies are a growing research area with possible applications to computer-aided surgery. Their aim is to create virtual environments where surgeons are free to practice. To ensure the needed realism, the simulations must be performed with deformable bodies. The goal of this paper is to describe the approach […]

GPU-based Acceleration of System-level Design Tasks

Many system-level design tasks (e.g., high-level timing analysis, hardware/software partitioning and design space exploration) involve computational kernels that are intractable (usually NP-hard). As a result, they involve high running times even for mid-sized problems. In this paper we explore the possibility of using commodity graphics processing units (GPUs) to accelerate such tasks that commonly arise […]

Evolution of thread-level parallelism in desktop applications

As the effective limits of frequency and instruction level parallelism have been reached, the strategy of microprocessor vendors has changed to increase the number of processing cores on a single chip each generation. The implicit expectation is that software developers will write their applications with concurrency in mind to take advantage of this sudden change […]

GPU-accelerated molecular dynamics simulation for study of liquid crystalline flows

We have developed a GPU-based molecular dynamics simulation for the study of flows of fluids with anisotropic molecules such as liquid crystals. An application of the simulation to the study of macroscopic flow (backflow) generation by molecular reorientation in a nematic liquid crystal under the application of an electric field is presented. The computations of […]

Data-intensive document clustering on GPU clusters

Document clustering is a central method to mine massive amounts of data. Due to the explosion of raw documents generated on the Internet and the necessity to analyze them efficiently in various intelligent information systems, clustering techniques have reached their limitations on single processors. Instead of single processors, general-purpose multi-core chips are increasingly deployed in […]

Accelerating epistasis analysis in human genetics with consumer graphics hardware

BACKGROUND:Human geneticists are now capable of measuring more than one million DNA sequence variations from across the human genome. The new challenge is to develop computationally feasible methods capable of analyzing these data for associations with common human disease, particularly in the context of epistasis. Epistasis describes the situation where multiple genes interact in a […]
