Title: The New World of Heterogeneous AI/ML High Performance Computing with Intel FPGAs
Abstract: Heterogeneous integration in semiconductors has revolutionized the capabilities and agility of FPGAs providing configurable, customized hardware solutions that are well suited for dynamically evolving markets in high performance computing such as AI/ML and Data Analytics, requiring flexibility and configurability as well as low latency. In a data-centric world, the challenge in not only to process data but also to move and store said data efficiently. This talk will show the progress and future directions in custom logic advanced architectures for AI/ML in HPC.
