Tailoring SVM Inference for Resource-Efficient ECG-Based Epilepsy Monitors

Event detection and classification algorithms are resilient towards aggressive resource-aware optimisations. In this paper, we leverage this characteristic in the context of smart health monitoring systems. In more detail, we study the attainable benefits resulting from tailoring Support Vector Machine (SVM) inference engines devoted to the detection of epileptic seizures from ECG-derived features. We conceive and explore multipleoptimisations, each effectively reducing resource budgets while minimally impacting classification performance. These strategies can be seamlessly combined, which results in 12.5X and 16X gains in energy and area, respectively, with a negligible loss, 3.2% in classification performance.
