Scene graph-based construction of CUDA kernel pipelines for XIP
2008 (English)In: MICCAI 2008 Workshop on High-Performance ComputingArticle in journal (Refereed) Published
We propose a framework which allows an application developer to construct and execute pipelines of existing CUDA kernel programs without programming the somewhat complex kernel configuration and setup. The framework is a new addition to the eXtensible Imaging Platform (XIP) of the National Cancer Institute. Pipeline construction is carried out through graphical construction of scene graphs in the XIP Builder tool. Complex pipeline struc-tures as well as kernels of arbitrary structure and function are supported. The framework has been used to execute existing CUDA kernels from NVIDIA’s CUDA SDK as well as a more complex image segmentation algorithm.
