"The Rogues Gallery ... will acquire new and unique hardware such as Intel’s 3D XPoint, NVLink-based Volta GPU, Emu Technology’s Chick, programmable network devices, neuromorphic architectures, and prototypes such as IBM’s TrueNorth and Intel’s Loihi"
They then plug them into a DC for students to grab and use with all the tooling preprepared and a scheduler available! A library of weird hardware is absolutely something researchers need.
Anyway, the context for this is that lack of hairdressers was the third most common reason given by prospective black students for why they didn't want to apply to Cambridge. Obviously, there's a lot going on in this interview so I'll go through it point by point:

The RHS Research NiteFury is still available to order! If the Zynq/Pynq relationship worked for you, but you wish it was your real computer rather than an embedded board, this is possibly the cheapest way to get the largest, fastest Zilinx FPGA supported by the free tools on your PCIe bus. 200K LUTS, 8GB DDR3, x4 PCIe gen2. https://www.crowdsupply.com/rhs-research/nitefury #fpga
