This department provides an overview the progress the authors have made to the emerging area of embedded and mobile forms of on-device deep learning. Their work addresses two core technical questions. First, how should deep learning principles and algorithms be applied to sensor inference problems that are central to this class of computing? Second, what is required for current and future deep learning innovations to be efficiently integrated into a variety of mobile resource-constrained systems? Toward answering such questions, the authors describe phone, watch, and embedded prototypes that can locally run large-scale deep networks processing audio, images, and inertial sensor data. These prototypes are enabled with a variety of algorithmic and system-level innovations that vastly reduce conventional inference-time overhead of deep models.

Fair Dynamic Spectrum Management for QRD-Based Precoding with User Encoding Ordering in Downstream G.fast Transmission

In next generation DSL networks such as G.fast, employing discrete multi-tone transmission in high frequencies up to 212 MHz, the crosstalk among lines reaches very high levels. To precompensate the crosstalk in downstream transmission, QRD-based precoding has been proposed as a near-optimal dynamic spectrum management (DSM) technique. However, the performance ...

Practical Mitigation of Passive Intermodulation in Microstrip Circuits

This paper presents new experimental evidence and a novel practical approach for mitigation of passive intermodulation (PIM) in microstrip circuits fabricated on commercial printed circuit board laminates. The mechanisms of distributed PIM in microstrip circuits are reviewed and a phenomenology of PIM generation due to locally enhanced electromagnetic fields at ...

Efficient Cooperative HARQ for Multi-Source Multi-Relay Wireless Networks

In this paper, we compare the performance of three different cooperative Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) protocols for slow-fading half-duplex orthogonal multiple access multiple relay channel. Channel State Information (CSI) is available at the receiving side of each link only. Time Division Multiplexing is assumed, where each orthogonal transmission occurs ...
