Section Description

This course will be a literature review of recent papers on compilers and optimization techniques for resource-constrained heterogeneous parallel systems used in edge computing. Such systems increasingly use specialized, domain-specific accelerators to deliver the necessary performance and energy efficiency under tight resource constraints. We will begin with a brief discussion of example domains important in edge computing applications, e.g., computer vision, image processing, speech processing, SLAM, and autonomous control systems. The course will then cover relevant papers in the areas of compilers, optimization techniques, and accuracy-performance-energy tradeoffs for such systems.
