“Think of success as a game of chance in which you have control over the odds.” – Bo Bennett
They say confession is good for the soul. Maybe it’s good for product development, too.
A small 30-person team is taking on the seemingly impossible: they’re designing their first handheld game console. Think … Read More → "A Work in Progress"
Not long ago, we published a piece describing Cadence’s new Tensilica Vision C5 processor. We used the opportunity to give a brief primer on convolutional neural nets (CNNs) and their role in vision processing. In fact, if you want a quick CNN refresher, I’d … Read More → "Further CNN IP Integration"
Move Over Watson, there’s a new AI bot in town! In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, artificial intelligence takes center stage. Did you know that two “dialog bots” at Facebook’s artificial intelligence lab created their own language? In the first part of our AI-themed podcast, we take a closer look at this new language and investigate why FAIR … Read More → "Artificial Intelligence and the New Language of Electronics"
We’ve all been waiting for the day when the machines take over the world. In fact, if you read this publication, you’re almost certainly spending most of your working day (even the part suffering through meetings) enabling the machines to take over the world. After all, that’s the whole purpose of technology – to build machines that make our lives easier by automating tasks for humans. Of … Read More → "The Day The Machines Took Over (The Wheel)"
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and, more specifically, Machine Learning (ML) seem finally to have hit the scene in a permanent way. Having grown up watching expert systems and fuzzy logic and other schemes come and go, the stars and planets – not to mention theories, algorithms, and computing power – appear to have aligned to give us something useful.
For a while, ML and “big data” were terms that were … Read More → "Automatic Car Driver Detection"
[Editor’s note: this piece has been updated at the end.]
Cadence recently announced neural-network processor IP. It would be pretty simple to jump into the architecture and start from there, but there’s this thing that I don’t think is just me that perhaps we should deal with … Read More → "Neural-Net In a Block"
