Optimizing CNN Inference on Mobile Devices
We use various optimization methods to fine-tune pretrained models to be later used for computer vision tasks. These techniques include sparsification, quantization, and compression.
ANTAREX is an EU-FP7 funded project and proposes a holistic approach capable of controlling all the decision layers in order to implement a self-adaptive application optimized for energy efficiency.
