Speeding Up AI Algorithms

AI at the edge is very different than AI in the cloud. Salvador Alvarez, solution architect director at Flex Logix, talks about why a specialized inferencing chip with built-in programmability is more efficient and scalable than a general-purpose processor, why high-performance models are essential for getting accurate real-time results, and how low power and ambient temperatures can affect the performance and life expectancy of these devices.

Product of the Week: Flex Logix InferX X1M Edge Inference Accelerator

Product of the Week: Flex Logix InferX X1M Edge Inference Accelerator

Every type of edge AI has three hard and fast technical requirements: low power, small form factor, and high performance. Of course, what constitutes “small,” “power efficient,” or “high performance” varies by use case and can describe everything from small microcontrollers to edge servers, but usually you must sacrifice at least one to get the others. However, one solution that can address everything from edge clouds to endpoints without sacrifice is the FPGA.

eFPGA LUTs will outship FPGA by the end of the Decade!

FPGA has become strategic technology. It is strategically important to two very big, high-growth applications: Cloud data centers and Communications systems including 5G, and acquisitions of FPGA companies confirm this. Why? Because of Parallel programming, but FPGAs have some concerns. This presentation will talk about how embedding FPGAs (eFPGA) can change the use case for FPGA and the way software is controlled.

Five AI Inference Trends for 2022

Five AI Inference Trends for 2022

It’s an exciting time to be a part of the rapidly growing AI industry, particularly in the field of inference. Once relegated simply to high-end and outrageously expensive computing systems, AI inference has been marching towards the edge at super-fast speeds. Today, customers in a wide range of industries – from medical, industrial, robotics, security, retail and imaging – are either evaluating or actually designing AI inference capabilities into their products and applications.

How Inferencing Differs From Training In Machine Learning Applications

How Inferencing Differs From Training In Machine Learning Applications

Why it’s so important to match the AI task to the right type of chip. Machine learning (ML)-based approaches to system development employ a fundamentally different style of programming than historically used in computer science. This approach uses example data to train a model to enable the machine to learn how to perform a task. ML training is highly iterative with each new piece of training data generating trillions of operations.

Getting better edge performance & efficiency from acceleration-aware ML model design

The advent of machine learning techniques has benefited greatly from the use of acceleration technology such as GPUs, TPUs and FPGAs. Indeed, without the use of acceleration technology, it’s likely that machine learning would have remained in the province of academia and not had the impact that it is having in our world today.
