Topic: Green Learning: Methodology, Examples, and Outlook

Speaker: C.-C. Jay Kuo University of Southern California

Time: January 5 (Thursday), 3:00 -4:30 pm

Location: EC 122, Engineering Bldg 3



The rapid advances in artificial intelligence in the last decade are primarily attributed to the wide applications of deep learning (DL). Yet, the high carbon footprint yielded by larger DL networks is a concern to sustainability. Green learning (GL) has been proposed as an alternative to address this concern. GL is characterized by low carbon footprints, small model sizes, low computational complexity, and mathematical transparency. It offers energy-effective solutions in cloud centers and mobile/edge devices. It has three main modules: 1) unsupervised representation learning, 2) supervised feature learning, and 3) decision learning. GL has been successfully applied to a few applications. This talk provides an overview on the GL solution, its demonstrated examples, and its technical outlook. The connection between GL and DL will also be discussed.
