A couple of weeks ago, Amazon AWS added FPGA to the hardware that powers its cloud-based services. This is big news for FPGA developers. If you have a program that relies on high-end FPGA, you can forgo the hardware costs (i.e. not buy the FPGA and other hardware necessary for the program) and instead, rent […]Read more "Don’t buy a high-end FPGA. Instead, rent one online."
In the week leading up to 2016’s US Presidential Election, the AI system MogIA correctly predicted the election would turn in favor of Republican candidate, Donald Trump. MogIA was developed in 2004 by Sanjiv Rai, founder of Indian start-up Genic.ai. So far, the AI system has correctly predicted the last three US elections.

FPGA are reprogrammable, meaning that a chip that was once used for a certain process can be changed – or reprogrammed to meet the demands of another application, but there’s a drawback […]Read more "Amazon AWS to Rely on Xilinx Ultrascale"
