Incremental Learning on Chip

Learning on chip (LOC) is a challenging problem in which an embedded system learns a model and uses it to process and classify unknown data, while adapting to new observations or classes. It may require intensive computational power to adapt to new data, leading to a complex hardware implementation. We address this issue by introducing an incremental learning method based on the combination of a pre-trained Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and majority votes, using Product Quantizing (PQ) as a bridge between them. We detail a hardware implementation of the proposed method (validated on a FPGA target) using limited hardware resources while providing substantial processing acceleration compared to a CPU counterpart.
