An Ultra-low-power Multi-core Engine for Inference on Encrypted DNNs

Tuesday, May 21, 4:20 PM - 4:50 PM
Summit Track: 
Enabling Technologies
Exhibit Hall ET 1

Neural network encryption is a useful method to secure a company’s IP. This presentation will focus on the design details of an ultra-low-power, scalable neural network core capable of performing inference on encrypted neural networks. Decryption of the neural network weights and topology take place inside the core, avoiding the need for decrypted networks to be present at any time in main memory. We will also discuss solutions clustering together multiple neural network cores to meet the neural inference processing requirements of a target SoC platform.
