题 目：Intelligence on Silicon:From DNN Accelerators to Super-Intelligence Al-SoCs
主 讲 人：韩国技术研究院（KAIST)教授Hoi-Jun Yoo
Recently, Deep Neural Networks are changing not only the technology paradigm in eloctronics but also the society itself with Artficial Inteligence technclogies.In this lecture, firstly, the status of Al and DNN SoCs will be reviewed from two perspectives: the applications such as data-center oriented andthe mobile and embecided Als, and the evolution of DNN Accelerators. Especially,mobile and embedded deep learning hardware,low power CNPU and reconfigurable DNPU and UNPU which can accelerate both CNN (Convolutional Neural Network) and RNIN (Recurrent Neural Network) will be introduced. In addition, their high efficiency and flexibility with “Dynamically Reconfigurable Processor” architecture will be explained in detail with the real chip measurement results, such as human emotion recognition and super-resolution image reconstruction.Secondly, KAIST’s approach for the super-intellgence will be explained with novel design methodology. The deep neural networks and the specialized intellgent hardware will implement not only the inference but also leaming on a chip. The personalization and autonomous adaptation to the environmental changes are possible with the on-chip learning capability. Even Deep reinforcement learning can be accelerated by a dedicated chip for the many exciting applications such as object recognition and the object tracking applications are implemented with low-power and high-performance for autonomous vehicles,and intelligent robots.
