Abstract:  


Cloud based wireless networks named also as Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RANs) emerge as appealing architectures for next-generation wireless/cellular systems whereby the processing/encoding/decoding is migrated from the local base-stations/radio units (RUs) to a control/central units (CU) in the "cloud". The network operates via fronthaul digital links connecting the CU and the RUs (operating as relays). The uplink and downlink are examined from a network information theoretic perspective, with emphasis of simple oblivious processing at the RUs, which is attractive also from the practical point of view. The analytic approach, applied to simple wireless/cellular models illustrates the considerable performance gains associated with advanced network information theoretically inspired techniques, carrying also practical implications. An outlook, pointing out interesting theoretical directions, referring also to Fog radio access networks (F-RAN), concludes the presentation.

Le 23/05/2019 Séminaire général Comelec: ""Software Compilation Techniques for Multi-Processor Platforms"

Jeudi 23 mai, 14H, Télécom ParisTech, Amphi B310, 46 rue Barrault, Paris 13

Thanks to the continuous evolution of semiconductor process technologies, tens or hundreds of processors of different types can nowadays be integrated into single chips. These heterogeneous Multi-Processor Systems-on-Chip (MPSoCs) have emerged in the last two decades as an important class of platforms for networking, communications, signal-processing and multimedia among other applications.

To fully exploit their computational power, new programming tools are needed that can assist engineers in achieving high software productivity. An MPSoC compiler is a complex tool-chain that aims at tackling the problems of application modeling, platform description, software parallelization, software distribution and code generation in a single framework. This seminar discusses various aspects of compilers for heterogeneous MPSoC platforms, using the well-known single-core C compiler technology as a baseline for comparison. The seminar is mainly intended as an educational presentation focused on the most important ingredients of the MPSoC compilation process and open research issues.

Abstract:

In compressing large files, it is often desirable to be able to efficiently recover and update short fragments of data. Classical compression schemes such as Lempel-Ziv are optimal in terms of compression rate but local recovery of even one bit requires us to decompress the entire codeword. Let us define the local decodability of a compression scheme to be the minimum number of codeword bits that need to be read in order to recover a single bit of the message/raw data. Similarly, let the update efficiency be the minimum number of codeword bits that need to be modified in order to update a single message bit. For a space efficient (entropy-achieving) compression scheme, what is the smallest local decodability and update efficiency that we can achieve? Can we simultaneously achieve small local decodability and update efficiency, or is there a tradeoff between the two? All this, and more (including a new compression algorithm) will be discussed in the talk.
