Novel Ways to Bind Software to Hardware Using AI

Prof. PE Gaillardon

Artificial intelligence and FPGAs have a synergistic relationship. The ability to customize accelerators in hardware, coupled with the abundance of DSP and memory resources in a flexible, configurable and fracturable array, lend FPGAs to be a graceful solution to highly complex arithmetic problems.

Unfortunately, FPGA adoption in AI has been slower than expected. We believe the problem is twofold…
