Resource-efficient ML in 2 KB RAM for the Internet of Things

Prateek Jain (Microsoft Research)

Abstract: We propose an alternative paradigm for the Internet of Things (IoT) where machine learning algorithms run locally on severely resource-constrained edge and endpoint devices without necessarily needing cloud connectivity. This enables many scenarios beyond the pale of the traditional paradigm including low-latency brain implants, precision agriculture on disconnected farms, privacy-preserving smart spectacles, etc. Towards this end, we develop novel tree and kNN based algorithm, called Bonsai and ProtoNN, for efficient prediction on IoT devices -- such as those based…

Estimation of Functionals of High-Dimensional and Infinite-Dimensional Parameters of Statistical Models

Vladimir Koltchinskii, Georgia Institute of Technology

The mini-course will meet on Monday, April 1 and Wednesday, April 3rd from 1:30-3:00pm This mini-course deals with a circle of problems related to estimation of real valued functionals of high-dimensional and infinite-dimensional parameters of statistical models. In such problems, it is of interest to estimate one-dimensional features of a high-dimensional parameter represented by nonlinear functionals of certain degree of smoothness defined on the parameter space. The functionals of interest could be often estimated with faster convergence rates than the…
