Paper Abstract

Intelligent based systems using methods such as local search meta-heuristic techniques, neural networks, genetic algorithms, genetic programming etc... are applied to many diverse application areas such as image processing and reconfigurable computing. Though great success has been gained by their application in such areas only recently has work been undertaken on their application to the area of reconfigurable hardware. The research presented here intends to use the strengths of these systems both to schedule work on an architecture as well as automatically designing architectures for optimum processing capability. An Intelligent Technique (IT) is used to automatically reconfigure the proposed Systolic Architectures (SA) for the implementation of matrix-based algorithms while a Heuristic Approach (HA) is used to optimize the implementation of the proposed designs on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
