The Dawn of AI Revolution in Chip Design
October 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Abstract: We are at the dawn of an AI revolution for every human activity including chip design. The AI revolution in chip design is absolutely necessary because of key macro trends influencing chip design and would further accelerate the AI revolution in all other fields. In this talk I will start with my personal journey of discovering AI for EDA and introduce several state-of-art AI applications in various chip design processes. Then I will explain the AI revolution from my perspective and predict how it would potentially revolutionize chip design process as well as design jobs in the long term. At end, I will illustrate key challenges in this journey and give some advice for students aspiring to enter this exciting field.
