A new technical paper titled “Hyperscale Hardware Optimized Neural Architecture Search” was published by researchers at Google, Apple, and Waymo.

“This paper introduces the first Hyperscale Hardware Optimized Neural Architecture Search (H2O-NAS) to automatically design accurate and performant machine learning models tailored to the underlying hardware architecture. H2O-NAS consists of three key components: a new massively parallel “one-shot” search algorithm with intelligent weight sharing, which can scale to search spaces of O(10280) and handle large volumes of production traffic; hardware-optimized search spaces for diverse ML models on heterogeneous hardware; and a novel two-phase hybrid performance model and a multi-objective reward function optimized for large scale deployments,” states the paper.
