  • Magillem User Group Meeting

    Magillem is hosting a user group meeting on October 26th at The Pad in Sunnyvale. User Group meetings are always educational; this one should be especially so for a number of reasons, not least of which is the keynote topic: Expert Systems for Experts.

    A great reason for going, as always in UG meetings, will be to hear other Magillem users talk about how they are using these tools in their daily design tasks. Since Magillem represents the leading edge of IP-XACT-based design assembly and support, that alone should be an incentive to attend.

    Another reason for you budding entrepreneurs is to get a look at The Pad, a co-working/ innovation center for young startups. I’m not sure you can get in if you’re not a member or have business with a member (prospect or VC for example), so you might want to take advantage of this opportunity.

    A particularly interesting reason is Magillem’s theme for the meeting: A Cognitive Assistant for SoC Designers. As a company working at the intersection of data representation standards and system design applications, Magillem have never operated as if they felt especially bound to limited functional areas. Today they work in system design, assembly and verification, traceability, data analytics and documentation. I’m sure there are rich opportunities for them to use cognitive methods in these domains.

    Among other topics in the agenda, Eric Mazeran will talk on how cognitive assistants could help designers of SoCs and complex subsystems. There will also be demos of Magillem architecture intent and content platforms as well as their Crystal Bulb capability. From users, I expect to hear both from teams who have had Magillem technology embedded in their flows for many years and from others who have only recently adopted these flows. Should provide an interesting range of perspectives.
