Visual Cortex on a Chip: Large-scale, Real-Time Functional Models of Visual Cortex on a GPGPU
Speakers:
Steven Brumby
- Los Alamos National Laboratory
Abstract:
Los Alamos National Laboratory''s Petascale Synthetic Visual Cognition project is exploring full-scale, real-time functional models of human visual cortex to understand how human vision achieves its accuracy, robustness and speed. Commercial-off-the-shelf hardware to support this modeling is rapidly improving, e.g., a teraflop GPGPU card costs ~$500 and is ~size of mouse cortex. We present results demonstrating image classification on UAV aerial video with a visual cortex model running on a 240-core NVIDIA GeForce GTX285, and see >x10 speed-up. As this technology continues to improve, cortical modeling on GPGPU devices has the potential to revolutionize computer vision.
