HORIZON-KDT-JU-2021-2-RIA-Focus Topic 1-Processing solutions for AI at the edge addressing the design stack and middleware


Proposals need to address:

  • The design of innovative and energy-efficient processing solutions for AI on theedge and deep-edge, with a focus on new processor architectures and middleware.
  • Tools allowing semi-automatic and automatic design space exploration, including variants of algorithms, computing paradigms, hardware performances, energy efficiency, etc.
  • Scalable architecture, use of interposer and chiplets to build chips for various applications (for edge and for embedded HPC applications) with the same family of hardware building blocks with efficient interconnection network, e.g. using photonics.
  • Development of hybrid architectures, integration and cooperation of neuromorphic or other non-conventional computing solutions within classical systems. Supporting design tool chains and OSs addressing multiple computing paradigms
  • Middleware and engineering tools, to reach a trade-off between training cost, power consumption and execution time while support
