  • Artificial Intelligence is Everything!

    Article: A Brief History of Field Programmable Devices (FPGAs)-amazon-echo-min-jpgMy first brush with AI was a LISP class for my undergraduate degree. LISP, originated from MIT in 1958, was the language of choice for AI research and spawned a new class of computer hardware called LISP Machines in the 1980s. My first personal experience with AI was the HAL 9000 system from the 2001 Stanley Kubrik movie Space Odyssey. Today I have my own personal AI systems (Amazon echo and Apple Siri) that I rely on every day.

    Most people don’t realize this but AI is already an active part of our daily lives: in our cars, in our phones, and in our homes. In fact, in regards to our cars, our lives will literally depend on AI, absolutely. I also believe the collective intelligence of the human race is on a downward trend so we will need all of the help we can get!

    The challenge of AI of course is compute power which is good news for the semiconductor industry because that “need for speed” will consume leading edge silicon like there is no tomorrow. The fabless semiconductor ecosystem is already gearing up for this deep learning experience on embedded systems and this webinar is a quick example:

    Summary

    As Artificial Intelligence (AI) marches into almost every aspects of our lives, one of the major challenges is bringing this intelligence to small, low-power devices. This requires embedded platforms that can deliver extremely-high Neural Network performance with very low power consumption. However, that’s still not enough.

    Machine Learning developers need a quick and automated way to convert and execute their pre-trained networks on such embedded platforms. In this session, we will discuss and demonstrate tools that complete this task within few minutes, instead of spending months on hand porting and optimizations.
