Reminder Subject: TALK: AI and Intelligent IC Design: A Synergistic Approach

This talk will present a synergistic approach on AI and intelligent IC design/manufacturing with two themes, AI for IC and IC for AI. As the semiconductor technology enters the era of extreme scaling, more intelligent IC design technologies across various abstraction layers are needed to deliver equivalent scaling to Moore’s Law. I will present our recent efforts leveraging modern AI and machine learning advancement to enable agile IC design and manufacturing closure. Meanwhile, customized IC can significantly improve AI performance and energy efficiency. I will present the hardware/software co-design of an optical neural network. The bidirectional reinforcement of AI and IC holds great potential to advance the state-of-the-art of each other.
