Parallel Algorithms for Computer Vision on the Connection Machine

By Unknown and James J. Little


The Connection Machine is a fine-grained parallel computer having up to 64K processors. It supports both local communication among the processors, which are situated in a two-dimensional mesh, and highbandwidth communication among processors at arbitrary locations, using a message-passing network. We present solutions to a set of Image Understand- ing problems for the Connection Machine. These problems were proposed by DARPA to evaluate architectures for Image Understanding systems, and are intended to comprise a representative sample of fundamental procedures to be used in Image Understanding. The solutions on the Connection Ma- chine embody general methods for filtering images, determining connectivity among image elements, determining spatial relations of image elements and computing graph properties, such as matchings and shortest paths
