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