Title: Application Acceleration with High-Level-Synthesis
Date: 2020-11-13 2:20pm-3:30pm
Location: R103, CSIE
Speaker: Mr. Jiin Lai(頼瑾), Founder, CTO, VIA Technologies Inc.
Hosted by: Prof. Chia-Lin Yang


We are in the era of digital transformation, sheet volume of data and computing continue skyrocket. Heterogeneous computing becomes a viable solution, in particular reconfigurable computing device, e,g. FPGA.
The traditional methodology of designing hardware can not meet the demand. We need to empower software designer to do end-to-end design from application to hardware acceleration.
This talk is to address the trend, industry successful examples, and how to prepare for it.
