GPU-enabled Fast and Accurate Multi-class Object Recognition | 4D Pipeline - trends & breaking news in Visualization, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, 3D, Mobile, and CAD. | Scoop.it

Incredible progress has been made in object recognition over the past decade. New algorithms are able to detect generic objects, such as people, cars, trucks, animals, and other common objects, with high accuracy. In this talk, we describe how a combination of optimizations on CUDA-enabled GPUs, and novel improvements in computer vision algorithms enabled us to accelerate object recognition by two orders of magnitude, enabling for the first time, real-time state-of-the-art object recognition of dozens of object types.
