First Benchmarking Workshop (2nd of July, 2021)

ANDANTE held its first benchmarking workshop online on the 2nd of July, 2021. The workshop was held online, and it was dedicated to discussing current benchmarking methods and how ANDANTE should approach benchmarking work comparative analysis throughout the project. Benchmarking is as necessary as challenging for ANDANTE, given the diversity of neural network accelerators and the fact that adapting the algorithm to the hardware is critical to performance.
