Machine learning, as one of the application branches of AI, has gained significant interest from both researchers and developers in recent years. With the explosion of large amount of unstructured data generated at various levels, from endpoints to edge to cloud, quick and accurate information processing has driven researchers to consider ways to analyze the data and act on it in real-time. Xilinx's new Machine Learning Suite enables users to easily evaluate, develop and deploy FPGA-accelerated ML inference using ready-to-run network models so that they can easily integrate machine learning into their research. This tutorial uses the Xilinx ML Suite to deploy models for real-time inference on Amazon EC2 F1 FPGA instances. During this lab you will use Python APIs to accelerate your ML applications with Amazon EC2 F1 instances powered by Xilinx FPGAs. It will provide users an experience on evaluating image classification through Caffe, MxNet and Tensorflow. It will demonstrate effect of 16-bit and 8- bit precision models on resource utilization and inference accuracy.
