Description: Machine learning is in tremendous demand in numerous applications; however, its often prohibitive complexity remains a major challenge for its extensive deployment in resource constrained platforms. This course will introduce techniques which enable the development of energy/time efficient machine learning systems, taking a path from algorithm to architecture down to the circuit level. In particular, you will first learn commonly used machine learning algorithms, and then algorithm-, architecture-, circuit-level techniques for reducing the energy/time cost of machine learning systems while maintaining their powerful performance. Finally, we will do a deep dive into state-of-the-art efficient machine learning systems, such as Google's TPU and Eyeriss.
