Spring is here — and, so is the PhD-defence of Zhiyuan Yao: May 17, at 10:00 at Ecole Polytechnique

All good things must come to an end … and so, after about 3 years of scientific collaborations, a global pandemic, and 10 or so scientific papers published or in the pipeline, my PhD student Zhiyuan Yao is preparing to...

Paper: IEEE Access - DNN partitioning for inference throughput acceleration at the edge

Intro I am very excited to present this work, published in the IEEE Access journal, which presents an alternative to standard AI workload acceleration mechanisms at the edge (hardware acceleration, model compression, cloud off-loading). This work, in collaboration with Cisco,...

Paper: HLB - Towards Load-Aware Load Balancing

Intro I have been working for a couple of years on the subject of making load balancers in data center networks more “intelligent”–in the sense of making appropriate task allocation according to both the dynamic server load states and the...
