A Survey of FPGA-based Accelerators for Convolutional Neural Networks

Deep convolutional neural networks (CNNs) have recently shown very high accuracy in a wide range of cognitive tasks and due to this, they have received significant interest from the researchers. Given the high computational demands of CNNs, custom hardware accelerators are vital for boosting their performance. The high energy-efficiency, computing capabilities and reconfigurability of FPGA make it a promising platform for hardware acceleration of CNNs. In this paper, we present a survey of techniques for implementing and optimizing CNN algorithms on FPGA. We organize the works in several categories to bring out their similarities and differences. This paper is expected to be useful for researchers in the area of artificial intelligence, hardware architecture and system-design.

Unsupervised Machine Learning on a Hybrid Quantum Computer

We show that our algorithm has robustness to quantum processor noise, and we find evidence that classical optimization can be used to train around both coherent and incoherent hardware imperfections. Beating the best classical benchmarks will require more qubits and better performance, but hybrid proofs-of-concept like this one form the basis of valuable applications for the first quantum computers.

Enabling Next-Generation Platforms Using Intel’s 3D System-in-Package Technology

This white paper evaluates system requirements for next-generation platforms and explains why conventional solutions may no longer be able to meet these requirements effectively. The paper introduces the heterogeneous 3D system- in-package (SiP) technology featured in Intel Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs. This technology enables next-generation platforms by powering higher bandwidth, lower power, a smaller form factor, and increased functionality and fledibility. Stratix 10 FPGAs and SoCs feature 3D SiP-based transceivers across all densities.
