Markerless Motion Capture (MMOCAP) is the problem of determining the pose of a person from images captured by one or several cameras simultaneously without using markers on the subject. Evaluation of the solutions is frequently the most time-consuming task, making most of the proposed methods inapplicable in real-time scenarios. This paper presents an efficient approach to parallelize the evaluation of the solutions in CPUs and GPUs. Our proposal is experimentally compared on six sequences of the HumanEva-I dataset using the CMAES algorithm. Multiple algorithm’s configurations were tested to analyze the best trade-off in regard to the accuracy and computing time. The proposed methods obtain speedups of 8× in multi-core CPUs, 30× in a single GPU and up to 110× using 4 GPUs
