Approximate Computing | A New Technology for Energy-efficient Multimedia Systems

Einladung Humboldt-LectureIn today’s world there is an explosive growth in digital information content. Moreover, there is also a rapid increase in the number of users of multimedia applications related to image and video processing, recognition, mining and synthesis. These facts pose an interesting design challenge to process digital data in an energy-efficient manner while catering to desired user quality requirements. Most of these multimedia applications possess an inherent quality of errorresilience. This means that there is considerable room for allowing errors in intermediate computations, as long as the final output meets the user quality requirements. This relaxation in accuracy can be used to simplify the complexity of computations at different levels of design abstraction, which directly helps in reducing the energy consumption, leading to enhanced battery-life and improved reliability.
