ALOHA – Software framework for runtime-Adaptive and secure deep Learning On Heterogeneous Architectures

 

Websitehttp://www.aloha-h2020.eu/
Scope: European Project (H2020)
Abstract: Deep Learning (DL) algorithms are an extremely promising instrument in artificial intelligence, achieving very high performance in numerous recognition, identification, and classification tasks. To foster their pervasive adoption in a vast scope of new applications and markets, a step forward is needed towards the implementation of the on-line classification task (called inference) on low-power embedded systems, enabling a shift to the edge computing paradigm.


Role: Project coordinator
Task: Coordination and realization of hardware accelerators for deep learning.

Scope: European Project (FP7)
Abstract:  The NEBIAS (“NEurocontrolled BIdirectional Artificial upper limb and hand prosthesiS”) proposal aims at developing and clinically evaluating (in selected amputees) a neuro-controlled upper limb prosthesis intuitively controlled and felt by the amputee as the natural one.  


Role: Project partners
Task: Development of implantable electronics for recording/stimulation


HEREiAM – An interoperable platform for self care, social networking and managing of daily activities at home

Website: http://www.hereiamproject.org
Scope: Project co-funded by the AAL Joint Program (Ref. AAL-2012-5-064) and the National Authorities and R&D programs in Italy, Belgium, Romania and The Netherlands.
Abstract: The HEREiAM project aims at facilitating the coordination and provision of home-based care services to older adults, improving and prolonging their expectation of an autonomous and independent life.


Role: Project coordinator
Task: Development of the hardware and software tools operating at home, organization of the field trial in Cagliari (Italy), analysis of the results.


MADNESS – Methods for predictAble Design of heterogeNeous Embedded System with adaptivity and reliability Support

Website: http://www.madnessproject.org/about/
Scope: European Project (FP7)
Abstract: The main goal of the project is to define innovative methodologies for system-level design, able to guide designers and researchers to the optimal composition of embedded MPSoC architecture, according to the requirements and the features of a given target application field. The proposed approach  tackle the new challenges, related to both architecture and design methodologies, arising with the technology scaling, the system reliability and the ever-growing computational needs of modern applications.

Role: Project coordinator
Task: Development of the FPGAbased platform for rapid emulation.
