Graphics processor unit hardware acceleration of Levenberg-Marquardt artificial neural network training

By David Scanlan and David J. Mulvaney


This article was published in the journal, Research Inventy: International Journal Of Engineering And Science.This paper makes two principal contributions. The first is that there appears to be no previous a description in the research literature of an artificial neural network implementation on a graphics processor unit (GPU) that uses the Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) training method. The second is an initial attempt at determining when it is computationally beneficial to exploit a GPU’s parallel nature in preference to the traditional implementation on a central processing unit (CPU). The paper describes the approach taken to successfully implement the LM method, discusses the advantages of this approach for GPU implementation and presents results that compare GPU and CPU performance on two test data sets
