Corps de texte

Deep learning is now ubiquitous in predictive analysis and specially in the field of computer vision. However, it comes at a steep price in terms of energy consumption, hardware implements as well as training or inference runtimes. For these reasons, Datakalab specializes in low power, runtime efficient and privacy compliant deep learning solutions working on edge devices (opt. insert chip refs here). With a strong emphasis on research and development, Datakalab has a publication record in the main international machine learning and computer vision venues such as NeurIPS, CVPR, ICCV and AAAI.


The goal of the internship is to investigate methods to accelerate the training of deep neural networks (DNNs). An example of such method is Net2Net [1], an approach that consists in first learning a small (as defined by its channel width) DNN, then progressively enlarge this DNN during training using weight splitting to ensure continuity throughout the process.


As a research intern will thus be to implement Net2Net and benchmark it on several scenarios, ranging from traditional computer vision benchmarks (e.g. CIFAR10/ImageNet classification) to practical problems (e.g. person detection in urban environments). You will then identify its limitations and propose creative improvement to the method.
