Image analysis, understanding and video processing fields have long relied on the availability of high performance computational infrastructure to deliver the required processing needs. However, in the last decade significant algorithmic advances in this area has significantly increased the computational processing needs. Such computational needs were historically satisfied by advances in Moore’s law which resulted in improvements in baseline computational efficiency of the general purpose computer systems. Such improvements benefitted the image processing and computer vision areas although little if any effort ...
