Re: Benchmarking Google's TPUv2

Eric B. Olsen shared his "Proposal for a High Precision Tensor Processing Unit" on arVix.org at https://arxiv.org/abs/1706.03251

This is interesting for those who want to try to build their own TPU
on a FPGA for example.

In the past there were techniques to extract rules from neural networks, this was typically used in biomedical, to assess the knoeledge from nnets by doctors, but t...
