Panel: Imagining How Artificial Intelligence Could Reshape the Verification Landscape
Moderator:
Balachandran Rajendran - Dell EMC

A crowd-pleasing panel about Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) at DVCon U.S. will be continued at DVCon Europe as chip design verification experts explore various scenarios to determine if the verification landscape needs to be modified. They will debate whether the current verification flow is equipped to handle the requirements of this emerging area estimated at more than 80 startups working on accelerator chips used across all market segments, including automotive and wireless. Further discussion will explore whether AI techniques pushing traditional CPU and GPU architectures to a different level will create an upheaval in chip design, chip design verification and embedded software that would require a new methodology and tools.

The panel will look at the other side of AI where the AI revolution is empowered with accelerators and chipsets, but AI as tool to solve design and verification challenges is unused. Panelists will be asked how the community can embrace AI in daily lives of design and verification engineers. 

Panelists come from such noted semiconductor companies as Arm, Dell EMC, dividiti Limited and T&VS, all of whom have AI chip development efforts under way. Audience members will be encouraged to bring questions and opinions to ensure a lively and thought-provoking panel session.
