Mid Sweden University, The The Department of Electronics Design
The Department of Electronics Design is situated at Campus Sundsvall. In
addition to its research activities, it offers courses and programmes in the
subjects Electronics, Electrical engineering and Sound production. The
research of the department is conducted at the research centre STC (Sensible
Things that Communicate, www. miun.se/stc).
Deep neural network (DNN) algorithms are an extremely promising
instrument in artificial intelligence, achieving very high performance in
numerous recognition, identification, and classification tasks. However, it is
still very challenging to implement DNN algorithms in resource-constrained
embedded devices, which hinders their widespread adoption in the vast array of
Internet of Things (IoT) applications and markets. The PhD student will
study architectures for low energy, low latency implementation of DNN
architectures for in-sensor and edge computing solutions. During the PhD
studies, there is a possibility for exchange with TU Vienna, Austria.
