Terapixel Image Processing

While most of the industry is yet to reach Gigapixel resolutions, MIT explores image processing approaches for the next step - Terapixel images. MsC thesis "Terapixel Image Processing and Simulation with Distributed Halide" by Tyler Denniston proposes distributed multi-core processing on NERSC Cori supercomputer to do that. The results are not very encouraging so far: no matter how many processing nodes are used, the camera ISP pipeline does not speed up enough:
