An effective way to achieve low latency and long battery life is to adapt application fidelity to the available resource levels. This is one of the core ideas in Odyssey, a platform we are building for mobile applications. Effective fidelity adaptation requires us to know the resource consumption of the application at any fidelity. In this talk, I describing the work we have done in Odyssey to monitor, log, and learn application resource consumption as a function of fidelity.
I will briefly describe our "logging and learning approach" and provide some preliminary results. I'll conclude with a look at future work: how we can improve prediction accuracy, and what other capabilities Odyssey will need to support truly effective adaptation.
