Abstract : Video analysis using local descriptors requires a high-throughput descriptor creation process. This speed can be obtained from modern GPUs. In this paper, we adapt the computation of the Eff2 descriptors, a SIFT variant, to the GPU. We compare our GPU-Eff descriptors to SiftGPU and show that while both variants yield similar results, the GPU-Eff descriptors require significantly less processing time.
