“Low-power Computer Vision: Status, Challenges and Opportunities,” a Presentation from Purdue University

Professor Yung-Hsiang Lu of Purdue University presents the "Low-power Computer Vision: Status, Challenges and Opportunities" tutorial at the May 2019 Embedded Vision Summit.

Energy efficiency plays a crucial role in making computer vision successful in battery-powered systems, including drones, mobile phones and autonomous robots. Since 2015, IEEE has been organizing an annual competition on low-power computer vision to identify the most energy-efficient technologies for detecting objects in images. The scores are the ratio of accuracy and energy consumption. Over the four years, the winning solutions have improved the scores by a factor of 24.

In this presentation, Professor Lu describes this competition and summarizes the winning solutions, including quantization and accuracy-energy tradeoffs. Based on technology trends, he identifies the challenges and opportunities in enabling energy-efficient computer vision.

Here you’ll find a wealth of practical technical insights and expert advice to help you bring AI and visual intelligence into your products without flying blind.
