Deep-learning (DL) is receiving huge attention as enabling techniques for emerging mobile and IoT applications. It is a common practice to conduct DNN model-based inference using cloud services due to their high computation and memory cost. However, such a cloud-offloaded inference raises serious privacy concerns. Malicious external attackers or un...
Article
Today's smartphone application (hereinafter ‘app’) markets do not provide information on power consumption of apps, which is essential for users. Continuous sensing apps make this problem more severe because significant power is consumed without users' awareness. We propose PowerForecaster to break through such an exhaustive cycle. It provides user...
