Subject [jira] [Commented] (SINGA-147) Run SINGA applications on mobile devices
Date Fri, 11 Mar 2016 13:53:45 GMT


Sheng Wang commented on SINGA-147:

As we have described, it will be valuable to make SINGA runnable on mobile devices.
For this gsoc project, we do not restrict what exact functionality you should deliver at the

The whole proposal is open to you.
You can work on any ideas you are interested in, related to mobile devices or NLP.
Feel free to share your ideas and let us discuss if it is feasible.

It might take a lot effort to realize your idea,
so you also need to think about what can be done during three months.

Here are some questions you can think about:
1. How to run (some part of) current SINGA code on mobile platform? any part need re-implement?
2. To reduce space consumption on mobiles, we might need to store model parameters in a compact
3. If you want to deliver a demo app for NLP, what function would you like it to have?

> Mobile devices (e.g., mobile phones) are good platforms for running deep learning applications,
e.g., object or speech recognition, since they can record video and audio, and take pictures.
> A simple implementation for such applications would send the content (e.g., video or
images) back to central servers, which requires internet connection and consumes mobile data.
Considering that the recognition task is cheap (cheaper than training tasks), we can implement
mobile apps to do the recognition tasks on the mobile devices. In this way, we can run the
applications off-line, which is very convenient for users.
> This JIRA issue is going to re-implement some SINGA functions on mobile app development
platforms to create a mobile app (android/ios) for object/speech recognition.
