  • Presentazione
  • Artificial intelligence (AI) combined with the ultra-low-power (ULP) paradigm is fueling the rapid evolution of embedded domains, such as Internet-of-Things and Industry 5.0. In this context, the RISC-V instruction set architecture is leveraging significant momentum, rising among top-notch industrial players: Google, IBM, Intel, Qualcomm, and even Nvidia use RISC-V in their chips now. This course will introduce the attendees to a RISC-V-based multi-core ULP processor. We will provide theoretical foundations and hands-on experience to optimize and deploy AI applications at the extreme edge.
  • Obiettivi
  • This class aims at people with some background in embedded programming who are eager to learn novel, cutting-edge technologies which leverage the RISC-V architecture for Artificial Intelligence (AI) workloads. We will offer the attendees the possibility to challenge their skills and endorse their know-how with a practical course that frames theoretical lectures with hands-on sessions.
  • Destinatari
  • Our ideal candidate has a basic knowledge of the embedded systems field and is willing to expand their expertise to the latest cutting-edge technologies from the RISC-V-based ultra-low-power domain.
  • Requisiti
  • - Familiarity with embedded devices (e.g., STM32 MCU, TI MSP430 MCU); - Familiarity with C programming (e.g., flow control, functions, arrays, pointers). - Familiarity with Linux OS (e.g., Ubuntu). - Favorable basic parallel programming experience (e.g., CUDA).

  • Osservazioni
  • Language selection criteria: At the registration time, each candidate will send an e-mail to dti.fc@supsi.ch indicating their preferred language among: . Italian only; . English only; . no preference -- i.e., meaning both Italian and English are fine. Once the registrations are closed, the language with the higher preference will be selected as the final class’s language. Then, the candidates will have to finalize their registration, i.e., implicitly allowing for free withdrawal in case of an unsuitable course’s language.
