The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming every sphere of our lives from personal wearables to transportation and industrial automation. IoT system architectures are rapidly moving towards edge computing where computational intelligence is embedded in the edge devices at or near the sensors instead of the remote cloud for time-sensitivity, security, privacy, and connectivity reasons. At present, the limited computing capability of power, area constrained edge devices severely restricts their potential.
We will examine the challenges to bring real-time intelligence to the edge and thereby unleash applications that currently belong in the realm of science fiction. We will present ultra-low power, software-defined accelerators as a promising approach to offer close to fixed-functionality ASIC-like energy efficiency while supporting diverse applications through full compile-time configurability. Finally, we will envision a future where synergistic cross-layer approaches spanning application, algorithm, compiler, architecture, and circuits would provide a giant leap in the edge computing efficiency.
Biography of the Speaker :
Tulika Mitra is Provost’s Chair Professor of Computer Science at the National University of Singapore (NUS). Her research is focused on the design automation of energy-efficient, safety-critical embedded computing systems through hardware-software cooperative approaches with emphasis on application-specific accelerators, heterogeneous computing, and worst-case execution time analysis. Tulika is currently serving as the Editor-in-Chief of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems, Program Chair of International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD) 2021, and General Chair of Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK) 2020.
