"Tailoring Convolutional Neural Networks for Low-Cost, Low-Power Implementation," a Presentation from SynopsysSynopsys
Deep learning-based object detection using convolutional neural networks (CNN) has recently emerged as one of the leading approaches for achieving state-of-the-art detection accuracy for a wide range of object classes. Most of the current CNN-based detection algorithm implementations run on high-performance computing platforms that include high-end general-purpose processors and GP-GPUs. These CNN implementations have significant computing power and memory requirements. Bruno Lavigueur, Project Leader for Embedded Vision at Synopsys, presents the company's experience in reducing the complexity of the CNN graph to make the resulting algorithm amenable to low-cost and low-power computing platforms. This involves reducing the compute requirements, memory size for storing convolution coefficients, and moving from floating point to 8 and 16 bit fixed point data widths. Lavigueur demonstrates results for a face detection application running on a dedicated low-cost and low-power multi-core platform optimized for CNN-based applications.
