Structured Pruning of Deep Convolutional Neural Networks
Sajid Anwar, Kyuyeon Hwang, Wonyong Sung
Article No.: 32
DOI: 10.1145/3005348

Real-time application of deep learning algorithms is often hindered by high computational complexity and frequent memory accesses. Network pruning is a promising technique to solve this problem. However, pruning usually results in irregular...

Energy-Efficient and Improved Image Recognition with Conditional Deep Learning
Priyadarshini Panda, Abhronil Sengupta, Kaushik Roy
Article No.: 33
DOI: 10.1145/3007192

Deep-learning neural networks have proven to be very successful for a wide range of recognition tasks across modern computing platforms. However, the computational requirements associated with such deep nets can be quite high, and hence their...

Distributed In-Memory Computing on Binary RRAM Crossbar
Leibin Ni, Hantao Huang, Zichuan Liu, Rajiv V. Joshi, Hao Yu
Article No.: 36
DOI: 10.1145/2996192

The recently emerging resistive random-access memory (RRAM) can provide nonvolatile memory storage but also intrinsic computing for matrix-vector multiplication, which is ideal for the low-power and high-throughput data analytics accelerator...

Stochastic CBRAM-Based Neuromorphic Time Series Prediction System
Cory Merkel, Dhireesha Kudithipudi, Manan Suri, Bryant Wysocki
Article No.: 37
DOI: 10.1145/2996193

In this research, we present a Conductive-Bridge RAM (CBRAM)-based neuromorphic system which efficiently addresses time series prediction. We propose a new (i) voltage-mode, stochastic, multiweight synapse circuit based on experimental bi-stable...
