This paper describes the development of a parallel implementation of the Support Vector Machines (SVMs) algorithm employed for the classification of hyperspectral (HS) images of in vivo human brain tissue. SVM has demonstrated high accuracy in the supervised classification of biological tissues, and especially in the classification of human brain tumor. In this work, both the training and the classification stages of the SVMs were accelerated using Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). The acceleration of the training stage allows incorporating new samples during the surgical procedures to create new mathematical models of the classifier. Results show that the developed system is capable to perform efficient training and real-time compliant classification.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/46806||ISSN:||0141-9331||DOI:||10.1016/j.micpro.2018.06.005||Source:||Microprocessors and Microsystems[ISSN 0141-9331],v. 61, p. 171-178|
