Xilinx Unveils its Vision for the Future of Computing, Details New Programmable Engine Fabric and Multiple AI Technologies
The explosion of AI and pervasive intelligence, combined with the demand for exponentially increasing computing power after Moore's Law, has given rise to domain-specific architectures (DSAs).
Victor Peng, XilinxCEO, will present his vision for the future in a keynote titled "Adaptable Intelligence: the Next Computing Era," at 11:45 a.m.on Tuesday, Aug. 21. Juanjo Noguera, engineering director, Xilinx Architecture Group, will present on "HW/SW Programmable Engine: Domain Specific Architecture for Project Everest." This is a first peek at one of the novel heterogeneous components in the forthcoming "Everest" product family, which will provide orders of magnitude performance increase. Everest is part of a new category of computing technology called the Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP). This will be delivered at 9:45 a.m.on Tuesday, Aug. 21.
