9:00 - 10:00 CPS Week Keynote
(Low) Powering Real-Time Intelligence at the Edge
Tulika Mitra, National University of Singapore
Internet of Things (IoT), a network of billion computing devices embedded within physical objects, is revolutionizing our lives. The IoT devices at the edge are primarily responsible only for collecting and communicating the data to the cloud, where the computationally intensive data analytics takes place. However, the data privacy and the connectivity issues - in conjunction with the fast real-time response requirement of certain IoT application - call for smart edge devices that should be able to support privacy-preserving, time-sensitive computation for machine intelligence on-site. But what does it take to bring real-time intelligence to the edge? I will present the computation challenges in edge-centric IoT and introduce hardware-software co-designed approaches to overcome these challenges. We will discuss the design of tiny accelerators that are completely software programmable and can speed up computation to realize the edge intelligence vision at ultra-low power budget. I will also demonstrate the promise of collaborative computation that engages heterogeneous processing elements in a synergistic fashion to achieve low-power, real-time edge computing.
