#Highlights2021 for me: our #survey on efficient processing of #sparse and compressed tensors of #ML/#DNN models on #hardware accelerators published in @ProceedingsIEEE.
RT/sharing appreciated. 🧵
Context: Tensors of ML/DNN are compressed by leveraging #sparsity, #quantization, shape reduction. We summarize several such sources of sparsity & compression (§3). Sparsity is induced in structure while pruning & it is unstructured inherently for various applications or sources. Various sources induce stru...Common structures of sparsi...
Likewise, leveraging value similarity or approximate operations could yield irregularity in processing. Also, techniques for size-reduction make tensors asymmetric-shaped. Hence, special mechanisms can be required for efficient processing of sparse and irregular computations.

Right, I've had enough. We need to talk about what #encryption, #hashing and #encoding are. They are distinct things that do distinct jobs and whether you are in #CyberSecurity or not, every #coder should know the difference. So... 🧵👇

Let's start with the simplest; encoding. This is a reversible process where you transform some data into another format, then transform it back (decode) to the original without any keys etc.

Examples: json encoding, base64 encoding, html characters conversion and compression.
Encoding is most useful for transmitting and storing data. For instance, base64 is great to ensure that "unusual" characters like {};[]!'" etc can be saved / sent safely.

ENCODING PROVIDES ZERO SECURITY. None. Anyone can decode your data, it's not meant for that.

I'm calm... 😅

We’ve offered #DH undergrad and grad internships at Newbook Digital Texts since 2011 and have collaborated with around 200 @uw students during that time. #dayofdh2020 @nelcuw @ds_uw @SimpsonCenter @SvobodaDiaries @ebadiary @UWArtSci @uwcse @UW_iSchool
I collaborate with Prof. Walter Andrews and Dr. Mary Childs, amongst others. Our projects range from #Ottoman and #Georgian poetry to C19 travel journals from #Iraq and #Egypt.  
Our work is #opensource, and interns work on all aspects of the projects, including...
