Machine Learning Overview

Semiconductor Engineering presents an overview of recent trends in machine learning, based in part on a recent market survey. The field is undergoing a renaissance, with a variety of diverse approaches on both hardware and software levels. Systems may include heterogeneous mixtures of CPUs, GPUs, DPSs, FPGAs, and ASICs. Optimized approaches may differ between the initial learning phase and the subsequent interpretation phase (inferencing and estimation). Major current applications include autonomous vehicles and cloud-based artificial intelligence, but many other applications are starting to develop.

Going Beyond Moore’s Law
IEEE at SXSW 2017

The South-by-Southwest Conference in Austin TX, Nov. 10-19, 2017, included a conference track on “Intelligent Future”, with a wide range of sessions related to artificial intelligence and the future of technology.

This, in turn, included an IEEE-led panel discussion on “Going Beyond Moore’s Law”, featuring IEEE Rebooting Computing Co-Chair Tom Conte. This video from IEEE.tv provides clips of the panel presentation and interviews with some technology leaders in attendance.
