Title: Efficient and Robust Edge AI: Software, Hardware, and the Co-design

Abstract: The deployment of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques at the edge has become prevalent. In this two-hour tutorial, we present some principles of designing an efficient and robust edge AI system from software, hardware, and the co-design perspectives. In particular, we will discuss: 1) efficient AI models, including deep neural network (DNN) model pruning, quantization, compression and architecture search, 2) efficient AI hardware, including AI accelerators and in-memory computing (IMC) designs; and 3) federated learning (FL) system designs by considering the challenges of data privacy and system heterogeneity.
