No, but you could certainly add to the dozens of companies that speciously claim to be able to do this.

Can this be ported to an FPGA (and I am not referring to a multiple processor cores in the FPGA, actual hardware, including Multiply-Accumulate, "MAC" units?)

Yes. That looks to be a "wording" error. But this is something radically different from the conventional approaches to handle multi-core programming. can the similar strategy be applied to control system algorithms say in the robotics domain where a lot of mathematics is involved in the interpolation algorithms

"Halide program was actually longer than the original but the speedup was 70-fold" ? that is 2**70 times faster. Please get your math right.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
