The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier conference for design and automation of electronic systems. The conference is devoted to Electronic Design Automation (EDA), Intellectual Property (IP), Embedded Systems and Software (ESS), IoT, Automotive Systems, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML), Security and Design on Cloud.
This year, DAC focused a lot on Machine/Deep learning & AI techniques, EDA on cloud and security verification. It was an honor and privilege to share that I will be chairing Front End Design session at 59DAC at San Francisco. Are you attending 59DAC?
As demand for more application-specific chips increasing, the EDA community is relying on ML techniques. ML was discussed at the silicon level, where the industry is looking forward to developing more and more ML and neural networking processors and also discussed about using ML to optimize various aspects of the life cycle of semiconductor engineering.
Many technical presentations and tech talks also covered the ML, There were panels to discuss how ML and AI could be used in design verification and implementation domains.
Security verification was one of the key topic for which I was given opportunity to chair the session. Great presentation from different companies and university. Session topic was "New Developments in security verification and controlling unpredictable behavior" For details on this session click here & here
