Hello, I am trying to build a Neural Network on Xilinx Virtex 5, that I
will feed it with images from this camera: OV7670 and train it in order
to determine if the person in the camera is man or woman. Is there any
VHDL core capable of implementing this processing? Ideally I would try
to achieve real-time (delay = 1-2 sec) to decide if the picture shows
man or woman. The camera I have bought is the OV7670, which takes
640x480 pictures. Can it work or I need a megapixel camera? I have,
also, found a High Definition 14 MegaPixel USB camera from ebay, and I
want to interface it with Virtex 5. Is something feasible? Where to
start from? In the same FPGA I have to put, also, the core of the
neural network and the core of the serial interface, which will output
man or woman. I am thinking of CNN.
Thank you...

I doubt anyone here can.

It's all a very tall order and far easier to determine the user's map
reading skills to determine sex.

The task you are describing is a complicated problem. It would normally done by first selecting a potential algorithm and writing it as a program to run on a PC from previously captured images. This would provide a useful debug environment and allow the algorithm to be evaluated and modified as needed to make it work. Then once an algorithm is working it can be coded on an FPGA.

The fact that you are asking for a "VHDL core" to do this shows you are not really prepared to even start on this job yet.

I assume this is a class assignment. Have you been given any information on the sort of tools and techniques you might used to achieve your goals? I would first review that to see if there are any likely algorithms you could use.

I have the freedom to choose any solution I prefer. I am thinking of Convolution Neural Networks as I have read papers about this. But, my main concern is that on FPGAs there is a memory bottleneck. On the same FPGA I should use a core for the camera, the NN core and the serial interface core that will output me the result. Is there any source/link/book that could help me on how to start?

Before you do any writing of code, you should plan how you are going to debug it, with "it" being each the algorithm and the implementation.

If you are just connecting prewritten modules there shouldn't be much need to study books other than language books. Do you know which language you will be using? What language are the modules written in?

I have built it in python. But I will program it in VHDL for obvious reasons, i.e. faster decision of the NN if the person is man or woman...

Yes, many times, from simple digital design to FSMs. But first time I will program Neural Networks.
