DescriptionWith the new classes of emerging workloads (e.g. ML, Big Data) there are increasing opportunities in the data center for FPGA algorithm, networking, and data access acceleration. For example, Microsoft has announced that they will accelerate Bing search, machine learning, and networking with FPGAs. Key advances in FPGA hardware architecture and integration with Xeons are also opening up new and broader opportunities for Cloud and Enterprise with significant performance increases in areas such as networking, search, machine learning scoring, and data analytics.
This presentation will provide an overview on the role and the impact of FPGAs in HPC and demonstrate how FPGAs are efficiently accelerating key HPC workloads, such as genomics, machine learning, video analytics and big data analytics.
