FPGA Acceleration of Convolutional Neural Networks
✅ indicates CONFIRMED TO RUN
- Date: Wednesday February 17, 2021
- Duration: 1 hour (with live Q&A)
- Time: 11am – 12pm
- Presenter: John Aynsley & Hardus Richter
- Cost: Free!
With demand growing for applications (from image recognition to data analysis) requiring machine or deep learning in more and more industries, both in the cloud and at the edge, this webinar aims to help you understand the advantages and challenges of implementing neural networks on an FPGA from first principles.
John Aynsley of Doulos will introduce the webinar and provide an overview of the essential concepts of neural networks, convolution operations and model training that you need to understand.
Hardus Richter of ASIC Design Services will then explore the considerations and challenges of CNN quantization and FPGA accelerator design in more depth.
What you will learn:
- the principals of neural networks and convolution operations
- the essentials of CNN quantization
- FPGA accelerator design considerations
The webinar also presents the applicability of quantization and accelerators to the Vitis AI tools from Xilinx.
The session will last for about one-hour, and will be interactive with Q&A participation (supported by Doulos & ASIC Design Services) for attendees.
Attendance is free of charge
