In this paper, we consider the problem of face detection un- der pose variations. Unlike other contributions, a focus of this work re- sides within efficient implementation utilizing the computational powers of modern graphics cards. The proposed system consists of a parallel implementation of convolutional neural networks (CNNs) with a special emphasize on also parallelizing the detection process. Experimental re- sults in a multi-camera environment show a dramatic speed-gain under real-life conditions.
