Webinar about „How to use FPGAs to accelerate deep learning“

While deep learning is a hot topic, it is still limited to non-manufacturing production rate speeds. To go beyond the real-time performance limit of GPUs, a new technology must be considered in combination with deep learning inference models... FPGA processors! This webcast demonstrates how Deep Learning is used as modern classification technology
