ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries. For more information or questions about this collection contact or visit the Digital Repository ETD Library Guide or contact the ASU Graduate College at

Machine learning technology has made a lot of incredible achievements in recent years. It has rivalled or exceeded human performance in many intellectual tasks including image recognition, face detection and the Go game. Many machine learning algorithms require huge amount of computation such as in multiplication of large matrices. As silicon technology has scaled to sub-14nm regime, simply scaling down the device cannot provide enough speed-up any more. New device technologies and system architectures are needed to improve the computing capacity. Designing specific hardware for machine learning is highly in demand. Efforts need to be made on a joint design …

Deep learning (DL) has proved itself be one of the most important developements till date with far reaching impacts in numerous fields like robotics, computer vision, surveillance, speech processing, machine translation, finance, etc. They are now widely used for countless applications because of their ability to generalize real world data, robustness to noise in previously unseen data and high inference accuracy. With the ability to learn useful features from raw sensor data, deep learning algorithms have out-performed tradinal AI algorithms and pushed the boundaries of what can be achieved with AI. In this work, we demonstrate the power of deep …
