What (Invisible) Dreams May Come

eSilicon’s AI Building Blocks and a New Cloaking Technology

This week’s episode of Fish Fry, we take a closer look at two childhood dreams of mine: an invisibility cloak and robots that can think! (ie. artificial intelligence.) First up, we examine why an invisibility cloak is closer to reality than ever before, the physics behind invisibility/cloaking, and important differences between three new cloaking technologies. Also this week, I sit down with Carlos Macian from eSilicon and talk about how ASICs and GPUs are being used as building blocks for artificial intelligence designs. Carlos and I chat about the intersection of AI and network design, the role GPUs play in artificial intelligence design and why basketball is just like a game of chess.

Once you'€™ve made the correct decision to add Speedcore eFPGA IP to your ASIC or SoC design, the next question you'€™ll need to answer is how large to make the eFPGA. That'€™s a multi-dimensional question because Speedcore eFPGAs contain many types of blocks including:...
