Christoforos Kachris

InAccel, Greece


Christoforos Kachris is the founder and CEO of InAccel that allows companies to speedup their applications using FPGAs inthe cloud. He is also senior researcher at National Technical University of Athens (NTUA/ICCS) and he serves as the Technical Project Manager of the H2020 VINEYARD project working on efficient utilization of reconfigurable accelerator-based servers in the data centers.


Machine Learning Acceleration using FPGAs in the cloud

In this talk we will show how machine learning applications (e.g. logistic regression and K-means), based on Spark or other frameworks like Python, Scala and Java, can be accelerated by 3x-10x using hardware accelerators that are deployed in the cloud without any changes on the Spark code. The talk will describe how to utilize seamlessly FPGAs in the cloud in order to speedup your applications and at the same time reduce the OpEx.
