Latest Works

  • SWaP Devices for Edge-Computing
    (Credit to work done by David Cornett and Clay Leach) Description For most research-based applications of Neural Networks (NNs), the go-to compute device for various network tasks, such as inferencing and training, have been Graphics Processing Units (GPUs). This is because of their relatively high throughput and memory speeds, as well as their ability to do matrix and linear algebra much faster than… Read more: SWaP Devices for Edge-Computing
  • Degradation Analysis in Real-Time Devices for Neural Networks
    Description Typically, Object Detectors and Classifiers are composed of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) that can exhibit human-like feature extraction, but can also have unrelated difficulty in comprehensively comprehending the contents of an image. Understanding how such a neural network can behave when non-ideal images are processed can be integral for real-time applications. Additionally, implementing methods of correcting damaged or “degraded” images can also… Read more: Degradation Analysis in Real-Time Devices for Neural Networks
