XJTLU FabLab - Guest talks on AI technology


The AI era has arrived bringing challenges and opportunities

The future is now. We are hearing more and more about AI technology in the news. The geekier among us may be familiar with phrases like Big Data, Machine Learning, and the Turing Test. In this talk, we will introduce the Field Programmable Gate Array (FGPA), a type of integrated circuit important for AI. You’ll find out why FGPAs are becoming so essential to computing in the AI era, and what challenges and opportunities exist.
