Neural network training acceleration using NVIDIA CUDA technology for image recognition


In this paper, an implementation of neural network trained by algorithm based on Levenberg-Marquardt method is presented. Training of neural network increased by almost 9 times using NVIDIA CUDA technology. Implemented neural network is used for the recognition of noised images.
