  Fabric on a Chip (FoC)
  I worked on resource-efficient realizations of neural networks in hardware. The approach I took is that of simplifying the arithmetic involved by using piece-wise linear approximations for all operations. At a modest reduction in accuracy this methodology offers substantial gains in area and speed.
