n
(Computer Science) a means of arranging computer data processing in which operations are governed by the data present and the processing it requires rather than by a prewritten program that awaits data to be processed

Installed in the AI server of the data center, the palm-sized AI accelerator increases computing speed by 20 times as it focuses on novel dataflow architecture, Chung explained.
As the name implies, the dataflow architecture focuses on moving data through a processor array quickly, rather than executing a series of instructions in sequence.
All of this depends, however, on having a good compiler that can take existing models and assign tasks to thousands of processing elements in a way that maximizes the dataflow architecture. For now, the DPU and software works with Google's TensorFlow framework, though Wave has also talked about adding support for Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit and MXNet, Amazon's tool of choice for AWS.
In this paper, the FPGA based dataflow architecture provided by Maxeler is used to accelerate region-of-interest based image segmentation algorithm for (breast) mammogram images which is developed by Milosevic et al.
The proposed design aims at combining the performance of a fine-grained dataflow architecture with the flexibility of reconfiguration, without requiring a partial reconfiguration or a new bitstream for reprogramming it.
The accelerator adopts a dataflow architecture. Most control functions are driven by the data flow itself.

Based on the company's wire-speed dataflow architecture, the AX family allows system vendors to unify switching and packet processing for fixed FTTx and mobile broadband access solutions.
Dataflow architecture avoids synchronization problems of parallelism in instruction control architecture and includes parallism directly in a architecture.
The research community has also embraced this shared-nothing dataflow architecture in systems like Arbre, Bubba, and Gamma.
