  • CGPA: Coarse-Grained Pruning of Activations for Energy-Efficient RNN Inference 

    Riera Villanueva, Marc; Arnau Montañés, José María; González Colás, Antonio María (2019-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Recurrent neural networks (RNNs) perform element-wise multiplications across the activations of gates. We show that a significant percentage of activations are saturated and propose coarse-grained pruning of activations ...
