Horizontal Visual Computing
Abstract: Addressing the world’s more pressing issues such as environmental sustainability and cultural heritage preservation increasingly relies on diverse visual applications running on emerging platforms such as AR/VR headsets, autonomous machines, and smart sensor nodes. In real-time and using low power, visual computing systems must generate visual data for human to consume, immersively, or interpret visual data to provide personalized services, intelligently.
In this talk, I will explain why today’s computer systems and architecture are not ready for generating and analyzing the next quintillion pixels, and outline the road that might get us there. Fundamentally, we have been over-emphasizing the vertical, domain-specific architecture design while future visual applications inherently encompass tasks from multiple domains. Simply stitching together systems designed for individual domains leads to a sub-optimal whole. I promote a horizontal, cross-domain mindset toward next-generation mobile visual computing systems.
