Today we're joined by Diana Marculescu, Department Chair, and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Texas at Austin.
We caught up with Diana to discuss her work on hardware-aware machine learning. In particular, we explore her keynote, "Putting the "Machine" Back in Machine Learning: The Case for Hardware-ML Model Co-design" from the Efficient Deep Learning in Computer Vision workshop at this year's CVPR conference.
In our conversation, we explore how her research group is focusing on making ML models more efficient so that they run better on current hardware systems, and what components and techniques they're using to achieve true co-design. We also discuss her work with Neural architecture search, how this fits into the edge vs cloud conversation, and her thoughts on the longevity of deep learning research.
