I was pretty excited when I saw this tweet by
Keno https://twitter.com/KenoFischer/status/1154865907472183296?s=19 which is showing Julia on Fgpa.
I have had this idea for a while “why only use GPU for data? Like what RpaidsAI is doing. Why not design a Data Processing Unit (DPU) from scratch for doing sorting and merging etc?”
Suppose such hardware exists looks like Julia can handle it right? Cos Julia works with FGPAs now and will for some Asic hardware in the future.
I have 0 knowledge about hardware compilers etc. I am just a pure mathematician. So keen to hear what people know about on this topic. I think I would at some point try to implement a FGPA data sorting hardware for fun though.
