Vectorize for loop: corr2(A(:,:,i),B(:,:,i))

6 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I am trying to accelerate a function and am unable to perform this myself, so I am hoping for your help.
I have a set of 10.000 small images (64x64), and I need to calculate the correlation coefficient for each of these images. This is the code:
clear all
close all
for i=1:size(A,3)
I found this, it results in a 64x64x1 matrix, but I need a 1x1x10000 matrix.... Thanks for your input!!

But Matlab is only using 50% of my CPU during this operation. I bet there is a faster way...

If you have R2020b, you mght try to vectorize with pagemtimes function (or use mtimesx from File exchange)
meanA = mean(A,[1 2]);
meanB = mean(B,[1 2]);
Ac = A-meanA;
Bc = B-meanB;
Ac = reshape(Ac,[],1,size(A,3));
Bc = reshape(Bc,[],1,size(B,3));
% psfun = @(a,b) sum(a.*b,1);
psfun = @(a,b) pagemtimes(a,'transpose',b,'none');
C = psfun(Ac,Bc)./sqrt(psfun(Ac,Ac).*psfun(Bc,Bc))

Divide the calculation into a chunks that do not exeed your PC ram, eg 8e4 images.
