Technical worskhop on Integrated machine-learning hardware for near-sensor computing applications


This is a technical workshop co-spondored by IEEE CAS France, GDR SoC2 and the Research Council of the Catholic University of Lille

With the growing amount of Smart Sensors, decreasing the energy consumption of the devices must be a priority to increase the battery lifetime and enable wearable and continuous monitoring. Since communication interfaces are the most energy-hungry parts of the sensor nodes, the “Near-Sensor Computing” concept aims at pre-processing the input data in order to keep only relevant information and thus limit the amount of data to transmit. Machine learning techniques are used to determine the relevance depending on the targeted application. The objective of this workshop is to detail how the embedded processing circuits can be integrated into the hardware and interfaced as close as possible to the sensor.

Seven excellent speakers are scheduled to cover many aspects of integrated processing and machine learning hardware, including a distinguished lecturer from the IEEE Circuit and Systems Society. The application fields range from biomedical signals (EEG, ECG) to audio signals (silicon cochlea, voice activity detection) to vision and general concepts of analog-to-feature conversion. The contributions will cover circuit-level, system-level and integration challenges.
