Dr. Giulio Gambardella is working as a research scientist in Xilinx Research, which he joined in 2016. His expertise covers hardware acceleration of machine learning algorithms, with a particular emphasis on quantized neural networks.
Before joining Xilinx, he was a visiting scientist at ABB Corporate Research Centre in Oslo, working on dependability evaluation for embedded systems in safety-critical applications.
He obtained his PhD in Computer Engineering from Politecnico di Torino (Italy)with a thesis, “Dynamic Partial Reconfiguration for Dependable Systems”, targeting FGPA adoption in safety-critical applications. Further research interests include memory testing, fault-tolerant reconfigurable systems and software based self-test, working in strong collaboration with CINI, the Italian National Interuniversity Consortium for Informatics and several private companies. He also served as a reviewer for several international journals and conferences.
