Hi Kalilo -- that's very kind of you to say -- thanks so much -- I enjoyed myself (much like my dear old mom, the real trick is to get me to STOP talking LOL

12:16:07	 From  Patrick Nercessian : I was wondering if you could give some of your insights on the newer FPGA families, like the Xilinx ACAP Versal series, with multiple vector processing (AI) cores. How do these platforms compare to other hardware accelerators like GPUs for AI processing?
12:52:14	 From  Patrick Nercessian : thanks
12:52:48	 From  Rene : What is your take on the Pynq Z2 for beginners?
12:54:44	 From  Rene : thank you
12:54:54	 From  Lance.Doyle : can you share a link on this language?
12:55:27	 From  Lance.Doyle : Pynq2z2
12:55:54	 From  Lance.Doyle : Great
12:57:09	 From  Lungsi : Thank you Max and Jacob for the interesting discussion. Because of the limitations of microcontrollers already addressed by Max
as a computational neuroscience researcher I have been looking into running my experiments on DSP at the level of assembly language. In the beginning of the discussion Max mentioned DSP.
So, I am curious if Max would recommend FPGA over DSP for developing non-artificial neural networks (for research hence not based on some neural network library)?
12:58:59	 From  Lungsi : Biological based neural network or Behavioral/Psychology based neural networks.
13:01:53	 From  Lungsi : Thank you very much Max.
13:02:37	 From  Rene : Awesome!
