FPGA World 2022 – Copenhagen
September 15, 2022
The FPGAworld Conference is an international forum for researchers, engineers, teachers, students, and hackers. It covers topics such as complex analog/digital/software FPGA SoC systems, FPGA/ASIC-based products, educational & industrial cases, and more. Registration for attendees is free and includes 2*coffee, lunch and go-home drink.
Preliminary Keynote Speaker Copenhagen 2022
Keynote speaker: Tero Rissa, Xilinx, Finland
Title: Adaptable Domain-Specific Architecture (DSA) for AI inference
Abstract: Every day new AI models are being invented to achieve higher accuracy or lower hardware requirements. However, fixed AI accelerators such as GPUs and ASICs struggle to meet real-life performance due to increasing complexity in network layers, layer-to-layer dataflow and lower mixed precisions. In this talk, we will show various Domain Specific Architectures (DSA) to optimize CNN, LSTM, and MLP in different vectors such as throughput, latency, and hardware utilization.
CV: Tero has more than 20 years of industrial experience of scaling new technologies from research and concept engineering into commercial products. He started working with artificial neural networks in 2009 and has since held senior positions in both engineering and management. Most recently he has been AI/ML HW Acceleration Research Group Leader at Nokia Bell Labs, Chief Architect of Machine Learning for Nokia Mobile Networks, the lead architect of OZO in Nokia Technologies and director of R&D at Microsoft. Tero holds MSc in CS/EE, Digital and Computer Systems from TUT Finland, and Ph.D. in Computing from Imperial College London UK. He is also an emeritus member of the Nokia CEO Technology Council and Bell Labs Distinguished Member of Technical Staff.
