Face Detection using GPU

I want to know whether openCV version 3.0 provides parallel GPU implementation of face detection i.e with CUDA ? If it provides that then how the training of haar cascade is done for it ? Please direct me to reading , online materials which can help me better understand the concept behind this.

You could start with the documentation cv::cuda::CascadeClassifier and with the source code: cudaobjdetect.

Thank you for your help. I also want to know how this works internally ? By that I mean the actual working of algorithm or the process. I want to know where this GPU implementation differs in the actual face detection process. How those GPU haar cascade files are formed, what part of the actual process is implemented in parallel?

Can you help me with that ?
