Deep learning for mobile multimedia
Deep learning architectures, tools, and algorithms are, in general, not adapted to the storage and computation resources of a mobile device. Thus, one needs better hardware for mobile devices and smaller footprints for learning and inference algorithms. This survey paper giving an overview of various technologies and... more
