TITLE: The Case for Offload Shaping

ABSTRACT:
When offloading computation from a mobile device, we show that it can pay to perform additional on-device work in order to reduce the offloading workload. We call this offload shaping, and demonstrate its application at many different levels of abstraction using a variety of techniques. We show that offload shaping can produce significant reduction in resource demand, with little loss of application-level fidelity.
