General information

Access profile

The doctoral programme focuses primarily on computer architecture. Applicants must therefore hold a master's degree in an area that covers this field (i.e. computer sciences). The appropriateness of a student’s qualifications will be determined based on the academic curriculum vitae they submit when applying for admission.

As a general rule, to be admitted to the doctoral programme offered by the Department of Computer Architecture, applicants should have completed a bachelor's degree, preferably in informatics or telecommunications, and a master's degree in one of these areas, such as the master's degree in Innovation and Research in Informatics (MIRI) in any of its specialisations. Applicants must also have a high level of English proficiency and be willing to join a working group, participate in research projects, travel and undertake periods of mobility abroad, and interact with colleagues outside the UPC (staff of companies and research centres, members of other groups, etc.).

Output profile

Doctoral candidates who complete a doctoral degree will have acquired the following competencies, which are needed to carry out quality research (Royal Decree 99/2011, of 28 January, which regulates official doctoral studies):

a) A systematic understanding of the field of study and a mastery of the research skills and methods related to the field.
b) An ability to conceive, design or create, put into practice and adopt a substantial process of research or creation.
c) An ability to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of knowledge through original research.
d) A capacity for critical analysis and an ability to assess and summarise new and complex ideas.
e) An ability to communicate with the academic and scientific community and with society in general as regards their fields of knowledge in the manner and languages that are typical of the international scientific community to which they belong.
f) An ability to foster scientific, technological, social, artistic and cultural progress in academic and professional contexts within a knowledge-based society.

The award of a doctoral degree must equip the graduate for work in a variety of settings, especially those requiring creativity and innovation. Doctoral graduates must have at least acquired the personal skills needed to:

a) Develop in contexts in which there is little specific information.
b) Find the key questions that must be answered to solve a complex problem.
c) Design, create, develop and undertake original, innovative projects in their field.
d) Work as part of a team and independently in an international or multidisciplinary context.
e) Integrate knowledge, deal with complexity and make judgements with limited information.

Duration of studies and dedication regime

Duration
The maximum period of study for full-time doctoral studies is three years, counted from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. The academic committee of the doctoral programme may authorise a doctoral candidate to pursue doctoral studies on a part-time basis. In this case, the maximum period of study is five years, counting from the date of admission to the programme to the date of submission of the doctoral thesis. For calculating these periods, the date of admission is considered to be the date of the first enrolment for tutorials, and the date of submission the moment in which the Doctoral School officially deposits the doctoral thesis.

For full-time doctoral candidates, the minimum period of study is two years, counted from the date of an applicant's admission to the programme until the date on which the doctoral thesis is deposited; for part-time doctoral candidates it is four years. When there are justified grounds for doing so, and the thesis supervisor and academic tutor have given their authorisation, doctoral candidates may request that the academic committee of their doctoral programme exempt them from the minimum period of study requirement.

The calculation of periods of study will not include periods of absence due to illness, pregnancy or any other reason provided for in the regulations in force. Students who find themselves in any of these circumstances must notify the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which, where appropriate, must inform the Doctoral School. Doctoral candidates may also temporarily withdraw from the programme for up to one year, and this period may be extended for an additional year. Doctoral candidates who wish to interrupt their studies must submit a justified request to the academic committee of the doctoral programme, which will decide whether or not to approve the request. Each programme will establish conditions for readmission to doctoral studies.

Extension
If full-time doctoral candidates have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, the academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year. In exceptional circumstances, a further one-year extension may be granted, subject to the conditions established by the corresponding doctoral programme. In the case of part-time doctoral candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

Dismissal from the doctoral programme
A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

Access, admission and registration

Access profile

The doctoral programme focuses primarily on computer architecture. Applicants must therefore hold a master's degree in an area that covers this field (i.e. computer sciences). The appropriateness of a student’s qualifications will be determined based on the academic curriculum vitae they submit when applying for admission.

As a general rule, to be admitted to the doctoral programme offered by the Department of Computer Architecture, applicants should have completed a bachelor's degree, preferably in informatics or telecommunications, and a master's degree in one of these areas, such as the master's degree in Innovation and Research in Informatics (MIRI) in any of its specialisations. Applicants must also have a high level of English proficiency and be willing to join a working group, participate in research projects, travel and undertake periods of mobility abroad, and interact with colleagues outside the UPC (staff of companies and research centres, members of other groups, etc.).

Access requirements

Applicants must hold a Spanish bachelor’s degree or equivalent and a Spanish master’s degree or equivalent, provided they have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on the two degrees (Royal Decree 43/2015, of 2 February)

In addition, the following may apply:

  • Holders of an official degree awarded by a university in Spain or any other country in the European Higher Education Area, pursuant to the provisions of Article 16 of Royal Decree 1393/2007, of 29 October, which establishes official university course regulations, who have completed a minimum of 300 ECTS credits on official university degrees, of which at least 60 must be at the master's degree level.
  • Holders of an official Spanish bachelor’s degree comprising at least 300 credits, as provided for by EU regulations. Holder of degrees of this kind must complete bridging courses unless the curriculum of the bachelor’s degree in question included research training credits equivalent in value to those which would be earned on a master's degree.
  • Holders of an official university qualification who, having passed the entrance examination for specialised medical training, have completed at least two years of a training course leading to an official degree in a health-sciences specialisation.
  • Holders of a degree issued under a foreign education system. In these cases, homologation is not required, but the UPC must verify that the degree certifies a level of training equivalent to an official Spanish master's degree and qualifies the holder for admission to doctoral studies in the country where it was issued. Admission on this basis does not imply homologation of the foreign degree or its recognition for any purpose other than admission to doctoral studies.
  • Holders of a Spanish doctoral qualification issued under previous university regulations.
  • Note 1: Doctoral studies entrance regulations for holders of an undergraduate degree awarded before the introduction of the EHEA (CG 47/02 2014)

    Note 2: Governing Council Decision 64/2014, which approves the procedure and criteria for assessing the fulfilment of academic admission requirements for doctoral studies by holders of non-homologated foreign degrees (CG 25/03 2014)

Admission criteria and merits assessment

Given the highly heterogeneous academic environment, to ensure that applicants have an appropriate background, the programme has modified its internal admission procedure. Admission requirements are now grouped in two categories: formal and conceptual. If an applicant does not meet the formal conditions, the conceptual requirements are not considered.

Formal analysis (FA)

Applicants must meet the requirements established in the administrative regulations for programme. The focus here is on ensuring that applicants have the level of studies and the number of credits required. Applicants who do not meet these requirements will not be admitted to the programme.

Conceptual analysis (CA)

This includes points related to the applicant’s level of knowledge and capabilities. Another factor taken into account is whether there is a research group interested in the work the applicant wishes to undertake. In this section, the following requirements apply:

• ED: An engineering degree related to the subject area of the programme, preferably in informatics or telecommunications. In exceptional cases, students with other qualifications, such as a degree in mathematics or a master's degree in computer science, may also be admitted.

• RG: Whether or not the applicant has the support of a research group linked to the programme and a supervisor/tutor to complete their doctoral thesis.

• BA: Experience or explicit knowledge of computer architecture; acquired, for example, by completing a master’s thesis in this area, collaborating with a group working in the field, etc.

• EN: Proficiency in English, certified by an internationally accepted testing system (TOEFL, etc.).

• FU: Availability of funding for the student’s research, whether through the institution where they completed their previous studies or through the group in which the thesis work would be carried out.

All of these factors will be taken into account by applying the following formula:
Admission: FA*(0.1ED + 0.4RG + 0.1BA + 0.2EN + 0.2FU)

Training complements

To ensure that students admitted to the programme have the knowledge they need to make good progress, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may require that they pass specific bridging courses. Additional training requirements will be determined based on each student's academic background. In such cases, the committee will keep track of the bridging courses completed and establish appropriate criteria to limit their duration. Bridging courses may provide research or cross-disciplinary training, but in no case may doctoral students be required to enrol for 60 or more ECTS credits. Taking into account the doctoral student activity report, the academic committee may propose measures that complement those specified in the regulations and which result in doctoral students who do not meet the specified requirements being excluded from the programme.

Therefore, the organisers of the doctoral programme may admit students on the condition that they complete specific bridging courses to fill gaps identified in their academic background and ensure that they have the knowledge needed to successfully complete their doctoral studies. The number of bridging courses required will depend on each student's background and may require the completion of 18 or 30 additional ECTS credits. The following considerations will apply: 

• Credits for additional training will correspond to three or five master's level subjects, selected from among master’s degrees linked to the doctoral programme. 

• The academic committee will decide how many credits a student must take by reviewing the subjects they took to earn their entrance qualification in order to identify possible gaps in their knowledge. A range of factors are taken into account to determine what subjects a student must take. Apart from subject names, other points considered include the number of hours of study completed for each subject, the topics covered, and even the university where the subjects were taken. The syllabus for each subject will be reviewed, with particular attention to the number of hours allocated in the syllabus. 

• The specific subjects to be taken will be determined by the academic committee in agreement with the student's tutor. Subjects will be selected with the aim of achieving two key goals: i) increasing the student’s knowledge in areas where gaps have been identified; ii) increasing their knowledge in the area of their doctoral thesis.

Enrolment period for new doctoral students

Students enrolling in the doctoral programme for the first time must do so by the deadline specified in the admission decision.
Unless otherwise expressly indicated, enrolments corresponding to admission decisions issued from the second half of April on must be completed within the ordinary enrolment period for the current academic year.

Monitoring and evaluation of the doctoral student

Procedure for the preparation and defense of the research plan

Doctoral candidates must submit a research plan, which will be included in their doctoral student activity report, before the end of the first year. The plan may be improved over the course of the doctoral degree. It must be endorsed by the tutor and the supervisor, and it must include the method that is to be followed and the aims of the research.

At least one of these annual assessments will include a public presentation and defence of the research plan and work done before a committee composed of three doctoral degree holders, which will be conducted in the manner determined by each academic committee. The examination committee awards a Pass or Fail mark. A Pass mark is a prerequisite for continuing on the doctoral programme. Doctoral candidates awarded a Fail mark must submit a new research plan for assessment by the academic committee of the doctoral programme within six months.

The committee assesses the research plan every year, in addition to all of the other activities in the doctoral student activity report. Doctoral candidates who are awarded two consecutive Fail marks for the research plan will be obliged to definitely withdraw from the programme.

If they change the subject of their thesis, they must submit a new research plan.

Formation activities

Tutorial hours are considered highly important for training students and monitoring their progress. Time spent on tutorials is estimated as follows:

Activity: Tutorial.

Hours: 2 hours/week × 48 weeks of class × 3 years = 288 hours. 

Type: compulsory

In weekly tutorials, students will discuss their work and the progress they are making with their tutor. Tutors may provide students with guidance based on the results obtained and anticipated progress with the aim of facilitating achievement of objectives that have been set. During the hours allocated for these sessions, tutors may also talk to students about research groups that are working in areas closely related to the topic of their thesis and that may be interested in engaging with the work to be carried out by the student, or that it may be worthwhile for the student to contact to discuss possible collaborations. Tutorials may also include internal meetings with other members of the research group to discuss issues of common interest in relation to the research being conducted.

This activity will continue throughout the time that it takes a student to complete their doctoral thesis (estimated at three years).

Procedure for assignment of tutor and thesis director

The academic committee of the doctoral programme assigns a thesis supervisor to each doctoral candidate when they are admitted or enrol for the first time, taking account of the thesis supervision commitment referred to in the admission decision.

The thesis supervisor will ensure that training activities carried out by the doctoral candidate are coherent and suitable, and that the topic of the candidate’s doctoral thesis will have an impact and make a novel contribution to knowledge in the relevant field. The thesis supervisor will also guide the doctoral candidate in planning the thesis and, if necessary, tailoring it to any other projects or activities undertaken. The thesis supervisor will generally be a UPC professor or researcher who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience. This includes PhD-holding staff at associated schools (as determined by the Governing Council) and UPC-affiliated research institutes (in accordance with corresponding collaboration and affiliation agreements). When thesis supervisors are UPC staff members, they also act as the doctoral candidate’s tutor.

PhD holders who do not meet these criteria (as a result of their contractual relationship or the nature of the institution to which they are attached) must be approved by the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee in order to participate in a doctoral programme as researchers with documented research experience.

The academic committee of the doctoral programme may approve the appointment of a PhD-holding expert who is not a UPC staff member as a candidate’s thesis supervisor. In such cases, the prior authorisation of the UPC Doctoral School's Standing Committee is required. A UPC staff member who holds a doctoral degree and has documented research experience must also be proposed to act as a co-supervisor, or as the doctoral candidate’s tutor if one has not been assigned.

A thesis supervisor may step down from this role if there are justified reasons (recognised as valid by the committee) for doing so. If this occurs, the academic committee of the doctoral programme will assign the doctoral candidate a new thesis supervisor.

Provided there are justified reasons for doing so, and after hearing any relevant input from the doctoral candidate, the academic committee of the doctoral programme may assign a new thesis supervisor at any time during the period of doctoral study.

If there are academic reasons for doing so (an interdisciplinary topic, joint or international programmes, etc.) and the academic committee of the programme gives its approval, an additional thesis supervisor may be assigned. Supervisors and co-supervisors have the same responsibilities and academic recognition.

The maximum number of supervisors of a doctoral thesis is two: a supervisor and a co-supervisor.

For theses carried out under a cotutelle agreement or as part of an Industrial Doctorate, if necessary and if the agreement foresees it this maximum number of supervisors may not apply. This notwithstanding, the maximum number of supervisors belonging to the UPC is two.

More information at the PhD theses section

Permanence

The academic committee of the programme may authorise an extension of up to one year for full-time doctoral candidates who have not applied to deposit their thesis by the end of the three-year period of study, in the terms outlined in the Academic Regulations for Doctoral Studies of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. In the case of part-time candidates, an extension of two years may be authorised. In both cases, in exceptional circumstances a further one-year extension may be granted by the Doctoral School's Standing Committee, upon the submission of a reasoned application by the academic committee of the doctoral programme.

A doctoral candidate may be dismissed from a doctoral programme for the following reasons:

  • The doctoral candidate submitting a justified application to withdraw from the programme.
  • The maximum period of study and of extensions thereof ending.
  • The doctoral candidate not having enrolled every academic year (unless he or she has been authorised to temporarily withdraw).
  • The doctoral candidate failing two consecutive assessments.
  • The doctoral candidate having disciplinary proceedings filed against him or her that rule that he or she must be dismissed from the UPC.

Dismissal from the programme implies that doctoral candidates cannot continue studying at the UPC and the closing of their academic record. This notwithstanding, they may apply to the academic committee of the programme for readmission and the committee must reevaluate them in accordance with the criteria established in the regulations.

International Mention

The doctoral degree certificate may include International Doctorate mention. In this case, the doctoral candidate must meet the following requirements:

a) During the period of study leading to the award of the doctoral degree, the doctoral candidate must have spent at least three months at a respected higher education institution or research centre outside Spain to complete courses or do research work. The stays and activities carried out must be endorsed by the thesis supervisor and authorised by the academic committee of the programme. The candidate must provide a certifying document issued by the person responsible for the research group of the body or bodies where the stay or activity was completed. This information will be added to the doctoral student’s activity report.
b) Part of the thesis (at least the summary and conclusions) must be written and presented in one of the languages commonly used for science communication in the relevant field of knowledge, which must not be an official language of Spain. This rule does not apply to stays and reports in Spanish or to experts from Spanish-speaking countries.
c) At least two PhD-holding experts belonging to a higher education institution or research centre outside Spain must have issued officially certified reports on the thesis.
d) The thesis examination committee must have included at least one PhD-holding expert from a higher education or research institution outside Spain who was not responsible for the candidate’s stay abroad (point a) above).
e) The thesis defence must have taken place on UPC premises or, in the case of joint programmes, at the location specified in the collaboration agreement.

    Thesis abstract: Computer vision plays a key role in Artificial Intelligence because of the rich semantic information contained in pixels and the ubiquity of cameras nowadays. Multimedia content is on a rise since social networks have such a strong impact in our society and access to the internet becomes more widespread. This context allows the gathering of large datasets which have fostered great advancements in the computer vision field thanks to deep neural networks. These models can effectively exploit large amounts of data to reach a high expressive power. Since the breakout of Imagenet, a large dataset for image classification, most computer vision tasks have benefited from deep neural networks. Among the different tasks in the computer vision field, locating objects in images and videos is a central one, as it has many applications in autonomous driving, surveillance, image and video edition, medical diagnosis and biometrics along with others. Localization of objects can be obtained with bounding boxes around the target objects, or with accurate pixel-level masks that delineate the instances. The latter is a more challenging task, but fundamental for certain applications where edges of objects need to be determined. The main task addressed in this thesis is instance segmentation, that consists in, given an image or video, providing pixel-level masks for each instance of certain semantic object classes. In order to train a segmentation model, current solutions rely on large amounts of pixel-wise annotations, which demand significant human effort to collect. Furthermore, expert knowledge is needed to gather certain annotations, such as labels for medical images. In consequence, there is a huge interest for systems that work with less-demanding forms of supervision, such as weakly or semi-supervised pipelines.  Besides, in some segmentation tasks, human effort is not only needed for training the models, but also at inference. In semi-automatic systems, user input may be required as guidance to start the system. One example is the task of one-shot Video Object Segmentation~(osVOS), which expects that the end-user provides a pixel-level mask for each object to be tracked in the first frame of the video. Following, the model must predict the segmentation mask of the tracked objects for the remaining frames. These initialization cues are crucial for high accuracy, but they are arduous to obtain. An alternative are models that depend on weaker input signals that are user-friendlier.This thesis explores different supervision scenarios for the instance segmentation task, distinguishing between supervision during training and at inference, and focusing on low-supervision setups. In the first part of the thesis we present a novel recurrent architecture for video object segmentation that is end-to-end trainable in a fully-supervised setup, and that does not require any post-processing step, i.e., the output of the model directly solves the addressed task. The second part of the thesis aims at lowering the annotation cost, in terms of labeling time, needed to train image segmentation models. We explore semi-supervised pipelines and show results when a very limited budget is available. The third part of the dissertation attempts to alleviate the supervision required by semi-automatic systems at inference time. Particularly, we focus on semi-supervised video object segmentation, which typically requires generating a binary mask for each instance to be tracked. In contrast, we present a model for language-guided video object segmentation, which identifies the object to segment with a natural language expression. We study current benchmarks, propose a novel categorization of referring expressions for video, and identify the main challenges posed by the video task.

    Thesis abstract: In recent years there has been an extraordinary growth of the demand of Cloud Computing resources executed in Data Centers. Modern Data Centers are complex systems that need management. As distributed computing systems grow, and workloads benefit from such computing environments, the management of such systems increases in complexity. The complexity of resource usage and power consumption on cloud-based applications makes the understanding of application behavior through expert examination difficult. The difficulty increases when applications are seen as "black boxes", where only external monitoring can be retrieved. Furthermore, given the different amount of scenarios and applications, automation is required. To deal with such complexity, Machine Learning methods become crucial to facilitate tasks that can be automatically learned from data. Firstly, this thesis proposes an unsupervised learning technique to learn high level representations from workload traces. Such technique provides a fast methodology to characterize workloads as sequences of abstract phases. The learned phase representation is validated on a variety of datasets and used in an auto-scaling task where we show that it can be applied in a production environment, achieving better performance than other state-of-the-art techniques. Secondly, this thesis proposes a neural architecture, based on Sequence-to-Sequence models, that provides the expected resource usage of applications sharing hardware resources. The proposed technique provides resource managers the ability to predict resource usage over time as well as the completion time of the running applications. The technique provides lower error predicting usage when compared with other popular Machine Learning methods. Thirdly, this thesis proposes a technique for auto-tuning Big Data workloads from the available tunable parameters. The proposed technique gathers information from the logs of an application generating a feature descriptor that captures relevant information from the application to be tuned. Using this information we demonstrate that performance models can generalize up to a 34% better when compared with other state-of-the-art solutions. Moreover, the search time to find a suitable solution can be drastically reduced, with up to a 12x speedup and almost equal quality results as modern solutions. These results prove that modern learning algorithms, with the right feature information, provide powerful techniques to manage resource allocation for applications running in cloud environments. This thesis demonstrates that learning algorithms allow relevant optimizations in Data Center environments, where applications are externally monitored and careful resource management is paramount to efficiently use computing resources. We propose to demonstrate this thesis in three areas that orbit around resource management in server environments

    Thesis abstract: Graph processing is an established and prominent domain that is the foundation of new emerging applications in areas such as Data Analytics and Machine Learning, empowering applications such as road navigation, social networks and automatic speech recognition. The large amount of data employed in these domains requires high throughput architectures such as GPGPU. Although the processing of large graph-based workloads exhibits a high degree of parallelism, memory access patterns tend to be highly irregular, leading to poor efficiency due to memory divergence.In order to ameliorate these issues, GPGPU graph applications perform stream compaction operations which process active nodes/edges so subsequent steps work on a compacted dataset. We propose to offload this task to the Stream Compaction Unit (SCU) hardware extension tailored to the requirements of these operations, which additionally performs pre-processing by filtering and reordering elements processed.We show that memory divergence inefficiencies prevail in GPGPU irregular graph-based applications, yet we find that it is possible to relax the strict relationship between thread and processed data to empower new optimizations. As such, we propose the Irregular accesses Reorder Unit (IRU), a novel hardware extension integrated in the GPU pipeline that reorders and filters data processed by the threads on irregular accesses improving memory coalescing.Finally, we leverage the strengths of both previous approaches to achieve synergistic improvements. We do so by proposing the IRU-enhanced SCU (ISCU), which employs the efficient pre-processing mechanisms of the IRU to improve SCU stream compaction efficiency and NoC throughput limitations due to SCU pre-processing operations. We evaluate the ISCU with state-of-the-art graph-based applications achieving a 2.2x performance improvement and 10x energy-efficiency.

    Thesis abstract: Deep Learning algorithms have been remarkably successful in applications such as Automatic Speech Recognition and Machine Translation. Thus, these kinds of applications are ubiquitous in our lives and are found in a plethora of devices. These algorithms are composed of Deep Neural Networks (DNNs), such as Convolutional Neural Networks and Recurrent Neural Networks (RNNs), which have a large number of parameters and require a large amount of computations. Hence, the evaluation of DNNs is challenging due to their large memory and power requirements.RNNs are employed to solve sequence to sequence problems such as Machine Translation. They contain data dependencies among the executions of time-steps hence the amount of parallelism is severely limited. Thus, evaluating them in an energy-efficient manner is more challenging than evaluating other DNN algorithms. This thesis studies applications using RNNs to improve their energy efficiency on specialized architectures. Specifically, we propose novel energy-saving techniques and highly efficient architectures tailored to the evaluation of RNNs. We focus on the most successful RNN topologies which are the Long Short Term memory and the Gated Recurrent Unit. First, we characterize a set of RNNs running on a modern SoC. We identify that accessing the memory to fetch the model weights is the main source of energy consumption. Thus, we propose E-PUR: an energy-efficient processing unit for RNN inference. E-PUR achieves 6.8x speedup and improves energy consumption by 88x compared to the SoC. These benefits are obtained by improving the temporal locality of the model weights. In E-PUR, fetching the parameters is the main source of energy consumption. Thus, we strive to reduce memory accesses and propose a scheme to reuse previous computations. Our observation is that when evaluating the input sequences of an RNN model, the output of a given neuron tends to change lightly between consecutive evaluations.Thus, we develop a scheme that caches the neurons' outputs and reuses them whenever it detects that the change between the current and previously computed output value for a given neuron is small avoiding to fetch the weights. In order to decide when to reuse a previous value we employ a Binary Neural Network (BNN) as a predictor of reusability. The low-cost BNN can be employed in this context since its output is highly correlated to the output of RNNs. We show that our proposal avoids more than 24.2% of computations. Hence, on average, energy consumption is reduced by 18.5% for a speedup of 1.35x.RNN models¿ memory footprint is usually reduced by using low precision for evaluation and storage. In this case, the minimum precision used is identified offline and it is set such that the model maintains its accuracy. This method utilizes the same precision to compute all time-steps.Yet, we observe that some time-steps can be evaluated with a lower precision while preserving the accuracy. Thus, we propose a technique that dynamically selects the precision used to compute each time-step. A challenge of our proposal is choosing a lower bit-width. We address this issue by recognizing that information from a previous evaluation can be employed to determine the precision required in the current time-step. Our scheme evaluates 57% of the computations on a bit-width lower than the fixed precision employed by static methods. We implement it on E-PUR and it provides 1.46x speedup and 19.2% energy savings on average.

Quality

The Validation, Monitoring, Modification and Accreditation Framework (VSMA Framework) for official degrees ties the quality assurance processes (validation, monitoring, modification and accreditation) carried out over the lifetime of a course to two objectives—the goal of establishing coherent links between these processes, and that of achieving greater efficiency in their management—all with the overarching aim of improving programmes.
