Low-Power Artificial Intelligence Framework for Internet of Things Applications

Research Project

The Internet of Things (IoT) is penetrating many facets of our daily life with the proliferation of intelligent services and applications empowered by artificial intelligence (AI). Due to the massive scalability of modern IoT networks and increased data privacy, traditional AI algorithms require centralized data collecting and processing, which may not be practical in real-world application scenarios. Low-power AI, also known as federated learning (FL), is a distributed collaborative AI approach that can enable many intelligent IoT applications by allowing AI training at the IoT devices without data sharing. This project proposes a prototype solution integrated with a low-power AI (federated learning) framework that can offer better battery life and privacy preservation for different IoT applications.



  • An in-depth understanding of the current low-power AI-based solutions for IoT applications.
  • Develop a low-power AI framework that can meet the power and latency requirements.
  • A prototype solution integrated with the low-power AI framework that helps in enhancing performance capabilities.
  • Three high-quality scientific articles are to be published.
