Department of Electrical Engineering, National Taiwan University


AI technology has been widely deployed on edge devices in recent days. The strong demand for AI computing calls for energy-efficient AI chips for emerging applications. In this talk, I will present some ongoing group projects at NTU, such as the Meta' SoC project and the Cross-layer Energy-Efficient Neural Network Design project. Along with the goal of edge computing, several edge AI-related chip designs have been developed. For example, the accelerating chips support mobile augmented reality, super-resolution imaging, and on-device training. Next, an embedded computing platform that links with the CIM (compute-in-memory) macro chip can perform system evaluation of SW/HW co-design for different edge applications. Lastly, how to interplay with emerging memories for storage and computation in edge AI devices becomes a new design issue. We will list some design techniques that can overcome and alleviate the shortcomings of non-volatile memories during NN training and/or inference. The research results will also be briefly addressed in this talk..
