Kurt Shuler, VP Marketing at Arteris IP, and Bernard Murphy (SemiWiki) discuss, 'What is driving the boom in AI-centric design', in this new SemiWiki blog:
AI, Safety and the Network
September 4th, 2019 - By Bernard Murphy
You probably know that Arteris IP is very active in AI and safety, leveraging their central value in network-on-chip (NoC) architectures. Bernard Murphy of SemiWiki blogged on Kurt Shuler's front-to-back white-paper to walking us through the essentials of AI, particularly machine learning (ML) and its application for example in cars.
Kurt also highlights an interesting point about this rapidly evolving technology. As we build automation from the edge to the fog to the cloud, functionality, including AI, remains quite fluid between levels. Kurt points out that this is somewhat mirrored in SoC design. In both cases architecture is constrained by need to optimize performance and minimize power across the system through intelligent bandwidth allocation and data locality. And for safety-critical applications, design and verification for safety around intelligent features must be checked not only within and between SoCs in the car but also beyond, for example in V2x communication between cars and other traffic infrastructure.
