NVIDIA is an official sponsor of the 2018 IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference System Design Contest.
This year’s contest features embedded system implementation of neural network based target tracking for drones. Contestants will receive training dataset provided by our industry sponsor DJI, and a hidden dataset will be used to evaluate the performance of the designs in terms of accuracy and power. Contestants will compete in two different categories: FPGA and GPU, and grand cash awards will be given to the top three teams in each category. In addition, a limited number of teams successfully registered with a free design kit (on a first-come-first-served basis).
