What is it about?
You will help us to make deep neural networks usable on mobile and embedded devices. To do so, you will optimize the network in terms of model complexity and the size of model updates in order to reduce power consumption, and in order to make effective use of memory and transmission bandwidth. Together, we will develop new optimization and compression methods. You will help with the systematic investigation of these methods and the transfer of existing deep learning applications onto embedded hardware platforms.
