REDUCT: Keep It Close, Keep It Cool – Scaling DNN Inference on Multi-Core CPUs with Near-Cache Compute

Abstract—"Deep Neural Networks (DNN) are used in a variety of applications and services. With the evolving nature of DNNs, the race to build optimal hardware (both in datacenter and edge) continues. General purpose multi-core CPUs offer unique attractive advantages for DNN inference at both datacenter [60] and edge [71]. Most of the CPU pipeline design complexity is targeted towards optimizin... » read more
