Many image processing algorithms have been parallelized successfully on many-core processors, such as GPU and Intel Xeon Phi. In this paper, we choose the Sunway many-core processor SW26010, which is a new processor designed and made in China that constitutes the current NO.1 supercomputer Sunway TaihuLight. This paper firstly introduces the architecture of Sunway SW26010 processor and two representative image processing algorithms: local binary pattern (LBP) and histogram of oriented gradient… CONTINUE READING
