Ultrasound tomography (UST) scanners allow quantitative images of the human breast’s acoustic properties to be derived with potential applications in screening, diagnosis and therapy planning. Time domain full waveform inversion (TD-FWI) is a promising UST image formation technique that fits the parameter fields of a wave physics model by gradient-based optimization. For high resolution 3D UST, it holds three key challenges: firstly, its central building block, the computation of the gradient…

Optimization Methods for Large-Scale Machine Learning
A major theme of this study is that large-scale machine learning represents a distinctive setting in which the stochastic gradient method has traditionally played a central role while conventional gradient-based nonlinear optimization techniques typically falter, leading to a discussion about the next generation of optimization methods for large- scale machine learning.

Implementation of 3D FFTs Across Multiple GPUs in Shared Memory Environments
Preliminary results show that running the distributed 3D FFT with four GPUs can bring a 12% speedup over the single node (CUFFT) while also enabling the calculation of 3 D FFTs of larger datasets, and shows that direct GPU-to-GPU transfers are the key factor in obtaining good performance on multi-GPU systems.
k-Wave: MATLAB toolbox for the simulation and reconstruction of photoacoustic wave fields.
By comparison with one-step, FFT-based reconstruction, time reversal is shown to be sufficiently general that it can also be used for finite-sized planar measurement surfaces and the optimization of computational speed is demonstrated through parallel execution using a graphics processing unit.
