Using Fewer Resources to Run Deep Learning Inference on Intel FPGA Edge Devices

Inference is an important stage of machine learning pipelines that deliver insights to end users from trained neural network models. These models are deployed to perform predictive tasks like image classification, object detection, and semantic segmentation. However, constraints can make implementing inference at scale on edge devices such as IoT controllers and gateways challenging. Learn how to train and convert a neural network model for image classification to an edge-optimized binary for Intel FPGA hardware.

Minimizing the PCI Compliance Burden Using Containerization, Microservices, and AWS

Leveraging cloud-based microservices is not a solution that works for everyone or every application, but it’s one more point in favor of transitioning legacy applications to microservices. If you’re already looking to re-architect, consider it an opportunity to spin out regulated data into separate containers. From there, it’s not much more effort to move those containers to AWS. Learn how AWS technologies can help organizations reduce their Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance burden.
