Adventures in Machine Learning: From Logic Simulation to Exoplanet Identification

Machine learning takes center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! First, we examine a new machine learning algorithm developed by researchers at the University of Warwick Department of Physics and the Alan Turing Institute. We take a closer look at the datasets used in this new algorithm and why this groundbreaking research will help confirm the existence of exoplanets and significantly speed up our understanding of the … Read More → "Adventures in Machine Learning: From Logic Simulation to Exoplanet Identification"

I Just Created my First AI/ML App! (Part 1)

I’m currently scampering around my office with a great big beaming smile plastered all over my face because I just created my very first artificial intelligence (AI) / machine learning (ML) application… and it works!

When people hear the terms AI and ML, very often their knee-jerk reaction is to think about machine vision and things like object detection and … Read More → "I Just Created my First AI/ML App! (Part 1)"

Intel Announces Stratix 10 NX

Intel has announced what they call their “First Intel AI-Optimized FPGA,” the Stratix 10 NX family. The company says these FPGAs “will offer customers customizable, reconfigurable and scalable AI acceleration for compute-demanding applications such as natural language processing and fraud detection.” Intel has bet on all the horses in the AI race, adding “Deep Learning Boost (DL Boost) to their flagship Xeon processors to dramatically accelerate AI … Read More → "Intel Announces Stratix 10 NX"

The Dividends of Persistence: Intel’s Optane Memory and Advances in DNA Storage

Benefits of FPGAs & eFPGA IP in Futureproofing Compute Acceleration   In the quest to accelerate and optimize today’s computing challenges such as AI inference, our system designs have to be flexible above all else. At the confluence of speed and flexibility are today’s new FPGAs and e-FPGA IP. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Mike Fitton from Achronix about … Read More → "Benefits of FPGAs & eFPGA IP in Futureproofing Compute Acceleration"
Smart Embedded Vision with PolarFire FPGAs — Microchip and Mouser Electronics   In embedded vision applications, doing AI inference at the edge is often required in order to meet performance and latency demands. But, AI inference requires massive computing power, which can exceed our overall power budget. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton talks to Avery Williams of Microchip about using FPGAs to … Read More → "Smart Embedded Vision with PolarFire FPGAs — Microchip and Mouser Electronics"
Introducing Google Coral — Google and Mouser Electronics   AI inference at the edge is exploding right now. Numerous designs that can’t use cloud processing for AI tasks need high-performance, low-power AI acceleration right in their embedded designs. Wouldn’t it be cool if those designs could have their own little Google TPU? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with … Read More → "Introducing Google Coral — Google and Mouser Electronics"
Hello FPGA — Microchip and Mouser Electronics   Getting started on an FPGA-based embedded vision project can be tricky. Locating all the components you need, getting them to talk to each other, and just getting your system to the video equivalent of “Hello World” is a pretty daunting task. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Avery Williams … Read More → "Hello FPGA — Microchip and Mouser Electronics"
Addressing Digital Implementation Challenges with Innovative Machine Learning TechniquesMachine learning is revolutionizing our designs these days with impressive new capabilities.
