Architectural Implications of Neural Network Inference for High Data-Rate, Low-Latency Scientific Applications

no code implementations13 Mar 2024 Olivia Weng, Alexander Redding, Nhan Tran, Javier Mauricio Duarte, Ryan Kastner

With more scientific fields relying on neural networks (NNs) to process data incoming at extreme throughputs and latencies, it is crucial to develop NNs with all their parameters stored on-chip.

Tailor: Altering Skip Connections for Resource-Efficient Inference

no code implementations18 Jan 2023 Olivia Weng, Gabriel Marcano, Vladimir Loncar, Alireza Khodamoradi, Nojan Sheybani, Andres Meza, Farinaz Koushanfar, Kristof Denolf, Javier Mauricio Duarte, Ryan Kastner

We argue that while a network's skip connections are needed for the network to learn, they can later be removed or shortened to provide a more hardware efficient implementation with minimal to no accuracy loss.

In this community review report, we discuss applications and techniques for fast machine learning (ML) in science -- the concept of integrating power ML methods into the real-time experimental data processing loop to accelerate scientific discovery.

Hardware-efficient Residual Networks for FPGAs

no code implementations2 Feb 2021 Olivia Weng, Alireza Khodamoradi, Ryan Kastner

Residual networks (ResNets) employ skip connections in their networks -- reusing activations from previous layers -- to improve training convergence, but these skip connections create challenges for hardware implementations of ResNets.

A Unified Model for Gate Level Propagation Analysis

no code implementations7 Dec 2020 Jeremy Blackstone, Wei Hu, Alric Althoff, Armaiti Ardeshiricham, Lu Zhang, Ryan Kastner

To justify our model, we prove that Precise Hardware IFT is equivalent to gate level X-propagation and imprecise fault propagation.

FastWave: Accelerating Autoregressive Convolutional Neural Networks on FPGA

no code implementations9 Feb 2020 Shehzeen Hussain, Mojan Javaheripi, Paarth Neekhara, Ryan Kastner, Farinaz Koushanfar

While WaveNet produces state-of-the art audio generation results, the naive inference implementation is quite slow; it takes a few minutes to generate just one second of audio on a high-end GPU.
