Nowadays, as edge devices such as smartphones become prevalent, there are increasing demands for personalized services. However, traditional personalization methods are not suitable for edge devices because retraining or finetuning is needed with limited personal data... Also, a full model might be too heavy for edge devices with limited resources. Unfortunately, model compression methods which can handle the model complexity issue also require the retraining phase. These multiple training phases generally need huge computational cost during on-device learning which can be a burden to edge devices. In this work, we propose a dynamic personalization method called prototype-based personalized pruning (PPP). PPP considers both ends of personalization and model efficiency. After training a network, PPP can easily prune the network with a prototype representing the characteristics of personal data and it performs well without retraining or finetuning. We verify the usefulness of PPP on a couple of tasks in computer vision and Keyword spotting. read more
