Beef Up the Edge: Building a Service Network for Sensing, Communications, Computing, Storage and Intelligence at the Edge


ABSTRACT: Sensing collects data for information, communications transports data for spot data consumption, computing enables data processing and intelligence extraction for decision making and control, while storage provides flexible buffering for optimal scheduling and content distribution, all together providing services for better quality of life. We observe an emerging paradigm shift: network technology is no longer just for message exchanges, rather becomes a utility as the consequence of the convergence of sensing, communications, computing, storage and intelligence (SCCSI), pushing needed services closer to the customers. In this talk, the speaker will present his view on how to put all pieces together and beef up the edge to intelligentize the life dependable systems.

Deep Learning-Based Vulnerability Detection for Open-Source Software


ABSTRACT: The detection of software vulnerabilities is a significant problem that has yet to be tackled, as manifested by the many vulnerabilities reported on a daily basis. The wide reuse of open-source software and the increasing complexity of software supply-chains make the problem of detecting software vulnerabilities even more imperative. This talk will discuss our recent researches on deep learning-based vulnerability detection for open-source software, beginning with the first deep learning-based vulnerability detector for library/API-related vulnerabilities. Then this talk will present a multiclass deep learning-based vulnerability detector, a framework for deep learning-based vulnerability detection, and a fine-grained vulnerability detector for locating vulnerable statements. Finally, this talk will also discuss a practical method toward tackling the interpretability of the deep learning model in vulnerability detection.

AI Everywhere: From Cloud Computing to Edge Computing


ABSTRACT: Approximately 80% of data are generated at the edge in 2030 compared to 20% in 2015. It is estimated that less than 2% of the data generated from IoT devices are used in 2020 and less than 0.5% will be used in 2030. AI computing are evolving from centralized cloud Server to Edge Servers to Edge Devices as distributed computing. Today, most machine learning algorithms are designed to be calculated in a single processor/device, so people are not taking advantage of all computational power in their house.There are many Open Source machine learning Algorithms available online, however, accurate, trained ML models are not public, datasets are not public and can contain sensitive customer data. Our vision is to build an Open, Creative, Secured AI Ecosystem. While cloud computing requires high performance, edge computing needs low power consumption.Compared with CPU, FPGA, and GPU, ASIC has great advantages in terms of computing efficiency, size, and cost.VeriSilicon provides platform-based, all-round, one-stop custom silicon services and semiconductor IP licensing.
