Face Detection CUDA Accelerating

Keywords: CUDA; GPU; Face Detection; Viola and Jones algorithm

Abstract:
Face detection is very useful and important for many different disciplines. Even for our future work, where the face detection will be used, we wanted to determine, whether it is advantageous to use the technology CUDA for detection faces. First, we implemented the Viola and Jones algorithm in the basic one-thread CPU version. Then the basic application is widened to the multi-thread CPU version. Finally, the face detection algorithm is also implemented for the GPU using CUDA technology. At the end, final programs are compared and the results are presented in this paper. For our future plans, the speed-up of face detection is very important. By supporting CUDA technology, the process of the face detection showed considerable speed-up.
