AI At The Edge: Optimizing AI Algorithms Without Sacrificing Accuracy

The ultimate measure of success for AI will be how much it increases productivity in our daily lives. However, the industry has huge challenges in evaluating progress. The vast number of AI applications is in constant churn: finding the right algorithm, optimizing the algorithm, and finding the right tools. In addition, complex hardware engineering is rapidly being updated with many different s... » read more

New Neural Processors Address Emerging Neural Networks

It’s been ten years since AlexNet, a deep learning convolutional neural network (CNN) model running on GPUs, displaced more traditional vision processing algorithms to win the ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Competition (ILSVRC). AlexNet, and its successors, provided significant improvements in object classification accuracy at the cost of intense computational complexity and large da... » read more

Accelerating Automotive Safety Certification With ASIL Compliant Certified IP

By Pavithra C. Suriyanarayanan and Srini Krishnaswami The autonomous vehicle market is growing at a tremendous rate and functional safety in conventional, hybrid, and electric automobiles plays a significant role in achieving the required certification. Auto makers must go through numerous government regulations that call for increased safety and reliability all the way down to the component... » read more

Meet Both Security And Safety Needs In New Automotive SoCs

With advances in hardware and software, smart vehicles are improving with every generation. Capabilities that once seemed far-off and futuristic—from automatic braking to self-driving features—are now either standard or within reach. However, as vehicle architectures evolve, the ways that both security and safety can be addressed at the system-on-chip (SoC) level also must evolve. Cars a... » read more

HDCP 2.3: Enabling Robust Security Of High-Res Displays

Displays, monitors and touchscreens are the interface to our digital lives everywhere—at home, at work, and in the car. Display designers continuously upgrade their products with higher bandwidth, new technologies, and innovative features. New, modular products incorporate micro LEDs to allow new form factors, such as designing displays that are as thin as a canvas, can be rolled up, or can b... » read more
