HiPEAC Workshop


HiPPES4CogApp: High Performance, Predictable Embedded Systems for Cognitive Applications

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015 — 14:00 — Room Extra 1
HiPEAC 2015 — Amsterdam

Cognitive systems analysing the environment using multiple sensors will become the norm in the future, for instance in video surveillance, advanced manufacturing and smart cities. This will be possible thanks to a paradigm change: whereas previous generation of systems had simple sensors, e.g. cameras, connected to powerful centralised computing servers through high-bandwidth networking, the emerging trend is to push low-power, high-performance computing on the edge of the system and in the distributed aggregators to improve overall flexibility, offload the severs and reduce bandwidth requirements. These “smart sensors” and “smart aggregators” will process data streams, extract significant semantic information and decide locally whether or not the data is of interest and is worth propagating to the servers.

These cognitive systems have stringent requirements on execution speed, timeliness, and power consumption despite variable workloads. It is a grand challenge to guarantee these requirements across distributed systems made of heterogeneous components, as current development practices cannot manage performance requirements the same way they manage functional requirements. Even worse, with the proliferation of complex parallel platforms, it becomes more difficult to design a system that reaches a given performance goal with just the minimum amount of properly managed resources.

This workshop will bring together researchers in academia and industry to discuss current status and next steps in architecture and development of distributed cognitive systems.
