  title={Image Processing Tasks using Parallel Computing in Multi core Architecture and its Applications in Medical Imaging},
  author={Sanjay Saxena and Neeraj Sharma and Shiru Sharma},
To find accurate & reliable result in image analysis, it is important that image is processed and analyzed using image processing suitable AI technique further at the same time it is highly desired that processing time must be minimum. Preprocessing of the image makes it more clear and visible, while parallelizing of the algorithm optimizes the speed at which the image is processed. This paper explores current multi-core architectures available in commercial processors in order to speed up the… Expand
