Towards Efficient Architectural Support for AI-based IoT Applications
主讲人 : Tao Li, Professor, University of Florida, IEEE Fellow
In recent years, the artificial intelligence (AI) techniques, represented by deep neural networks (DNN), have demonstrated transformative impacts to modern Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications such as smart cities and smart transportation. With the increasing computing power and energy efficiency of mobile devices, there is a growing interest in performing AI- d IoT applications on mobile platforms. As a result, we believe the next-generation AI- d applications are pervasive across all platforms, ranging from central cloud data center to edge-side wearable and mobile devices.
However, we observe several architectural gaps that challenge the pervasive AI. First, the diversity of computing hardware resources and different end-user requirements present challenges to AI- d applications deployment on various IoT platforms, which results in inferior user satisfaction. Second, the traditional statically trained DNN model could not efficiently handle the dynamic data in the real IoT environments, which leads to low inference accuracy. Lastly, the training of DNN models still involves extensive human efforts to collect and label the large-scale dataset, which becomes impractical in IoT big data era where raw IoT data is largely un-labeled and un-categorized.
In this talk, I will introduce our recent research which enables pervasive AI- d IoT applications to become high-efficient, user-satisfactory, and intelligent. I will first introduce Pervasive AI, a user satisfaction-aware deep learning inference work, to provide the best user satisfaction when migrating AI- d applications from Cloud to all kinds of platforms. Next, I will describe In-situ AI, a novel computing paradigm tailored to AI- d IoT applications. Finally, to achieve real intelligent (support autonomous learning) in IoT nodes, I will introduce an unsupervised GAN- d deep learning accelerator.
