Data-Driven Offline Optimization For Architecting Hardware Accelerators

no code implementations20 Oct 2021 Aviral Kumar, Amir Yazdanbakhsh, Milad Hashemi, Kevin Swersky, Sergey Levine

An alternative paradigm is to use a "data-driven", offline approach that utilizes logged simulation data, to architect hardware accelerators, without needing any form of simulations.

An Evaluation of Edge TPU Accelerators for Convolutional Neural Networks

no code implementations20 Feb 2021 Amir Yazdanbakhsh, Kiran Seshadri, Berkin Akin, James Laudon, Ravi Narayanaswami

Then, we extensively evaluate three classes of Edge TPUs, covering different computing ecosystems, that are either currently deployed in Google products or are the product pipeline, across 423K unique convolutional neural networks.

Apollo: Transferable Architecture Exploration

no code implementations2 Feb 2021 Amir Yazdanbakhsh, Christof Angermueller, Berkin Akin, Yanqi Zhou, Albin Jones, Milad Hashemi, Kevin Swersky, Satrajit Chatterjee, Ravi Narayanaswami, James Laudon

We further show that by transferring knowledge between target architectures with different design constraints, Apollo is able to find optimal configurations faster and often with better objective value (up to 25% improvements).

Chameleon: Adaptive Code Optimization for Expedited Deep Neural Network Compilation

no code implementations ICLR 2020 Byung Hoon Ahn, Prannoy Pilligundla, Amir Yazdanbakhsh, Hadi Esmaeilzadeh

This solution dubbed Chameleon leverages reinforcement learning whose solution takes fewer steps to converge, and develops an adaptive sampling algorithm that not only focuses on the costly samples (real hardware measurements) on representative points but also uses a domain-knowledge inspired logic to improve the samples itself.

Mixed-Signal Charge-Domain Acceleration of Deep Neural networks through Interleaved Bit-Partitioned Arithmetic

no code implementations27 Jun 2019 Soroush Ghodrati, Hardik Sharma, Sean Kinzer, Amir Yazdanbakhsh, Kambiz Samadi, Nam Sung Kim, Doug Burger, Hadi Esmaeilzadeh

Low-power potential of mixed-signal design makes it an alluring option to accelerate Deep Neural Networks (DNNs).

ReLeQ: A Reinforcement Learning Approach for Deep Quantization of Neural Networks

no code implementations5 Nov 2018 Ahmed T. Elthakeb, Prannoy Pilligundla, FatemehSadat Mireshghallah, Amir Yazdanbakhsh, Hadi Esmaeilzadeh

We show how ReLeQ can balance speed and quality, and provide an asymmetric general solution for quantization of a large variety of deep networks (AlexNet, CIFAR-10, LeNet, MobileNet-V1, ResNet-20, SVHN, and VGG-11) that virtually preserves the accuracy (=< 0. 3% loss) while minimizing the computation and storage cost.


GANAX: A Unified MIMD-SIMD Acceleration for Generative Adversarial Networks

no code implementations10 May 2018 Amir Yazdanbakhsh, Hajar Falahati, Philip J. Wolfe, Kambiz Samadi, Nam Sung Kim, Hadi Esmaeilzadeh

Even though there is a convolution stage in this operator, the inserted zeros lead to underutilization of the compute resources when a conventional convolution accelerator is employed.
