Data-drive Specialization towards Intelligent Internet of Things

Beyond the Internet of Things (IoT) lies the Artificial Intelligence of Things (AIoT): the vision of ubiquitous objects interacting with the environment and humans autonomously and intelligently. Realizing this vision relies on implementing complex computation under stringent resource constraints, at both the levels of individual devices and the overall system. In this talk, I will advocate for a data-driven approach that optimizes the computation to the application context in order to break the resource limits of IoT devices and systems. To highlight the efficacy of our approach, I will present two examples: compression of multiple deep neural networks for mobile computer vision, and post-deployment sensor calibration for air pollution monitoring. Both examples show extra resource saving beyond the corresponding domain sciences without compromising performance.
