Face recognition on GPU

One possibility to perform face recognition in OpenCV is using the FaceRecognizer class.

Is there an OpenCV CUDA counterpart of that class?

In other words, is it possible to perform face recognition on GPU with OpenCV?

Thank you for any help.

none of opencv's face recogizer classes (from opencv_contrib) are gpu optimized at all (there is no code for this)

maybe you should try to use the dnn based facenet model instead, which can be run on opencl target.

Thank you for your answer. Do you think that I can find face recognition acceleration on GPU under python and cv2?
