I tried running the opencl basic face detector code which is in samples/ocl/facedetect.cpp. Before compiling the face detect code I followed the below steps to compile the Opencv with Opencl enabled.

1) I downloaded OPECL SDK by intel and installed it.

http://software.intel.com/en-us/vcsource/tools/opencl-sdk

2) Using CMAKE I enabled "WITH_OPENCL" and builded opecv successfully. The "libopencv_ocl245.dll" got created.

I tried compiling the face detect code and it got compiled successfully. But int devnums = cv::ocl::getDevice(oclinfo, ocl::CVCL_DEVICE_TYPE_DEFAULT); always returns "0".

I changed the flag as follows and I got the below error

int devnums = cv::ocl::getDevice(oclinfo, ocl::CVCL_DEVICE_TYPE_DEFAULT);

My questions are below:

1) Is ther any hardware dependency for running opencl face detection code? I am running the code in Intel cpu.

2) Can some one list what are the specifications needed to run the opencl face detection code.

3) Am I wrong anywhere in the above steps?

4) Only installing opencl SDK is enough? Or do I need to install some thing else?

As far as I know OpenCL is just another standard to use the power of GPGPU devices, that are not CUDA supported. So it first looks for usefull devices to process the code on, your CPU doesn't apply to that criteria, since it is your basic processing unit, and the OpenCL implementations are only for GPU processing. Do you even have a GPU processor?

@StevenPuttemans I have intel HD graphics card (internal) of type Intel(R) HD Graphics Family. So will Opencv + Opencl supports that.

The intel HD graphics card, which is internally located on your motherboards, doesn't support direct access for general purpose GPU programming. So OpenCV won't support that either. The CUDA/OpenCL implementations are for extra video cards, that support GPGPU processing.

As per intel documentation it says as follows? "This includes both discrete GPUs (NVidia, AMD), as well as integrated chips(AMD APU and intel HD devices)" ? So If I need to run the OPENCL face detect in my intel machine what should I do?

Well as far as I get it, the OpenCV implementation doesn't have the intention to serve the integrated part ... but I am not sure of that. Guess you should look for someone with more OpenCL experience.
