FPGAs Focal Point for Efficient Neural Network Inference

by Xilinx Employee ‎02-13-2017 03:52 PM - edited ‎02-24-2017 10:53 AM

Article featured on The Next Platform by Nicole Hemsoth

 

Over the last couple of years, we have focused extensively on the hardware required for training deep neural networks and other machine learning algorithms. Focal points have included the use of general purpose and specialized CPUs, GPUs, custom ASICs, and more recently, FPGAs.

 

As the battle to match the correct hardware devices for these training workloads continues, another has flared up on the deep learning inference side. Training neural networks has its own challenges that can be met with accelerators, but for inference, the efficiency, performance, and accuracy need to be in balance.

 

One developing area in inference is in the use of binarized neural networks (BNNs)—an approach that has implications on the low-precision side for both hardware and software.
