Experience Level: Entry
You will write CUDA and C programs for image blurring. Mathematically, an image blurring function calculates the values of an output image pixel as a weighted sum of a patch of pixels encompassing the pixel in the input image. The patch size is determined by a constant BLUR_SIZE. For a 3 × 3 patch, the BLUR_SIZE is set to 1. For a 7 × 7 patch, the BLUR_SIZE is set to 3. The weight can be set to 1 but you can try different weight values to illustrate the blurring effect.
You choose one of your pictures with a proper image size to demonstrate the blurring effect. The length and width of the image are divisible by 16 so you can use a 16 × 16 thread block, with 16 threads n the x direction and 16 threads in the y direction.
Compile and run your program on the Magnolia system with GPUs.
You need to write a report that includes (1) a brief problem description, (2) design and implementation details, (3) a few screenshots that show how you compile/run your program, (4) original and blurring image, (5) screenshots to display the results such as the number of threads and parallel runtime and (6) results analysis and discussion.
