Work Experience

2019 - 2020

DEEP - EVIoT: Deep embedded vision using sparse convolutional neural networks

Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisation(RIS3), Region of Western Greece, NSRF 2014 - 2020

The main purpose of the project is to design and implement an heterogeneous platform consisting of multiple Low Power Graphic processors with deep learning algorithms acceleration capabilities . A software SDK for vision problems using optimized deep sparse coding techniques especially designed for the aforementioned platform will be provided . The significant benefits of the proposed deep eviot system extends to a very wide range of applications from industrial and surgical robotics to autonomous vehicles, smart security cameras and military applications .
