Full GPU acceleration of local descriptors using CUDA
Video analysis using local decriptors demands an high-throughput descirptor creation process. The most practical methods to this goal is to use GPUs that come with most resent computers. In this report, we adapt the computation of the Eff2 descriptors, a variant of SIFT, to the GPU. We compare our GPU-Rff2 descriptors to SiftGPU and show that while both GPU-based variants yield similar results, the GPU-Eff2 descriptors require sifnificantly less processing time.
