Last October I got the Intel Hardware Accelerator Research Program (HARP) grant.

Intel Corporation, San Jose Innovation Campus

Intel Innovation Campus in San Jose

Intel invited the recipients to San Jose, CA, for presenting their new multi-chip package (MCP) technology and early access to platforms and tools provided through HARP. According to the call, the grant would be assigned to 30 research centers/universities worldwide, letting them access the new Intel CPU+FPGA (Broadwell + Arria10) MCP solutions. My proposal was centered around the idea of  “harnessing the FPGA potential through GPU-like programming”, and will try to apply most of the ideas I’ve been exploring during the last three years to the new Intel technologies.. I must say, I feel very excited!
