Scientists may have found a Neptune-sized alien moon

Astronomers have found an abundance of exoplanets, but no exomoons. Despite ongoing efforts, the tiny celestial bodies have just been too elusive to detect using modern technology. However, researchers might have just hit paydirt. They’ve used Kepler Space Telescope data to discover signs of what looks like a Neptune-sized moon orbiting a planet in the Kepler-1625 system, 4,000 light years away from Earth. They were tipped off to the companion when they noticed dips in brightness (indicative of an object transiting in front of a star) around a planet during three of its transits. It’s a very promising piece of evidence, but we wouldn’t bet money just yet — there’s some homework left to do before the discovery is validated.

An FPGA-Based Solution for a Graph Neural Network Accelerator

Sponsored by Achronix

Graph Neural Networks (GNN) drive high demand for compute and memory performance and a software only based implementation of a GNN does not meet performance targets. As a result, there is an urgent need for hardware-based GNN acceleration. While traditional convolutional neural network (CNN) hardware acceleration has many solutions, the hardware acceleration of GNN has not been fully discussed and researched. This white paper reviews the latest GNN algorithms, the current status of acceleration technology research, and discusses FPGA-based GNN acceleration technology.
