In this paper we present an optimization of the Optimum-Path Forest classifier training procedure, which is based on a theoretical relationship between minimum spanning forest and optimum-path forest for a specific path-cost function. Experiments on public datasets have shown that the proposed approach can obtain similar accuracy to the traditional one but(More)
19 In general, pattern recognition techniques require a high computational burden for learning the discriminating functions that are responsible to separate samples from distinct classes. As such, there are several studies that make effort to employ machine learning algorithms in the context of " big data " classification problems. The research on this area(More)
In this paper, we presented a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)-based training algorithm for Optimum-Path Forest (OPF) classifier. The proposed approach employs the idea of a vector-matrix multiplication to speed up both traditional OPF training algorithm and a recently proposed Central Processing Unit (CPU)-based OPF training algorithm. Experiments in several(More)
Some pattern recognition techniques may present a high computational cost for learning samples' behaviour. The Optimum-Path Forest (OPF) classifier has been recently developed in order to overcome such drawbacks. Although it can achieve faster training steps when compared to some state-of-art techniques, OPF can be slower for testing in some situations.(More)
