Heterogeneous computing has the potential for significant gains over traditional computing models. This work represents the first open-source FPGAs-as-a-service toolkit.
Graphics Processing Units can accelerate algorithms to resolve tremendously growing demands for computing in large scientific experiments. We present a comprehensive exploration of the use of GPU-based hardware acceleration for deep learning inference within the data reconstruction workflow of high energy physics.
Large-scale particle physics experiments face challenging demands for high-throughput computing resources both now and in the future. New heterogeneous computing paradigms on dedicated hardware with increased parallelization, such as Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs), offer exciting solutions with large potential gains.
