    While many computers have become small enough to disappear, computing has continued to be a very visible or explicit task for a large number of computer users. Computing platforms and the World Wide Web are undergoing significant architectural transitions driven by the unprecedented convergence of the need to process massive amounts of data with the availability of massive amounts of compute resou...

    Multimedia and computational intensive applications are more and more pushing towards high-performance, low-power consumption and limited area occupation making the concept of optimality multi-objective. In the context of a design space exploration framework to support the platform-based design approach, we address the problem of robust optimization of a parameterized system-on-chip platform towar...

    In this paper, we propose a cross-layer algorithm/architecture co-exploration for wireless multimedia systems to coordinate interactions among sub-layer optimizers for improvements in energy/QoS/reliability. By exploiting the inherent redundancy in wireless multimedia systems, we generate an expanded design space over traditional, layer-specific approaches. Specifically, we control the error resil...

    A challenge in the design space exploration of todays' multimedia system-on-chip (SoC) designs is to rapidly evaluate the large number of different processor types. This limitation is resolved by our methodology, originated from the SIMBA1 project. It automatically generates a Sys- temC performance model of the software code with respect to the chosen processor type. The generated performance mode... View full abstract»

    Nowadays, digital image processing is the most common form of image processing. Digital image processing makes it possible to enhance image features of interest while attenuating detail irrelevant to a given application, and then extract useful information about the scene from the enhanced image. For instance, digital cameras usually include dedicated digital image processing chips in order to imp... View full abstract»

    Action recognition is becoming an important component of many computer vision applications such as video surveillance, video indexing and browsing. However most of the space time approaches to action recognition are very computationally expensive which prevents us from using them in real-time applications. This paper describes how Graphic Processing Units (GPUs) can be used in the field of action ... View full abstract»

    Markov random field models provide a robust formulation of low-level vision problems. Among the problems, stereo vision remains the most investigated field. The belief propagation provides accurate result in stereo vision problems, however, the algorithm remains slow for practical use. In this paper we examine and extract the parallelisms in the belief propagation method for stereo vision on multi... View full abstract»

    As System-on-Chip (SoC) architectures become pivotal for designing embedded systems, the SoC design complexity continues to increase exponentially necessitating the need to find new design methodologies. In this paper we present a novel SoC co-design methodology based on Model Driven Engineering using the MARTE (Modeling and Analysis of Real-time and Embedded Systems) standard. This methodology is...

    We propose a design optimization framework for adaptive real-time streaming applications. The main contribution is a hybrid approach for performance analysis combining formal analysis and simulation using a two-phase framework. We formulate the scheduling problem of adaptive streaming applications with ILP analysis, and use the simulation based on the synchronous model of computation to ensure thr... View full abstract»

    Optimizing the code size of a digital signal processing application is a crucial step in generating high quality and efficient code for embedded systems. Most modern digital signal processors (DSPs) provide multiple address registers and a dedicated address generation unit (AGU) that provides address generation in parallel to instruction execution. There is no address computation overhead if the n... View full abstract»
