We’re running the gamut of electronic design in this week’s episode of Fish Fry. Chris Dries (CEO – UnitedSiC) and I discuss some common cascode issues facing hardware designers today and what UnitedSiC is doing to help ease the pain of those issues. We also chat about the advantages (and limitations) of silicon carbide and why he thinks silicon carbide will become the semiconductor of choice for power … Read More → "Silicon Carbide’s Time to Shine"
Computation is entering an era of unprecedented heterogeneous distribution. The diverse demands of IoT applications require everything from heavy-iron, deep-learning data-crunching to ultra-low-latency snap recognition and judgment. Our IoT devices and systems must be simultaneously aware and responsive to their own local context and able to harness the power of massive compute resources for more global issues. A self-driving vehicle can’t afford to send gobs … Read More → "AI at the IoT Endpoint"
“Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance.” — George Bernard Shaw
Spoiler alert: We’re ignorant and we like it.
Not stupid, necessarily – just uninformed, in the dark, unaware. It’s part of who we are. In fact, we depend on it.
All of cryptography is based on secrecy and ignorance. You and I know the key, but the bad guys … Read More → "In Defense of Ignorance"
Vision in living beings is a pretty incredible thing. The eyeball hardware and the brain software seem effortlessly to do what we struggle to do in inorganic hardware and software. But we’re making progress. And, today, we take on two vision topics – but, unlike in the past, they’re not closely related. They’re about two very different aspects of vision. And we’ll take them in the … Read More → "Seeing and Being Seen"
Can blockchain technology inspire a new realm of AI innovation? Bottos thinks so.
For them, the equation is simple — blockchain + data x AI. In this week’s Fish Fry, we check out how blockchain technology can encourage innovation in the world of artificial intelligence. Xin Song (CEO of Bottos) and I chat about the what, where, and how of the Bottos Data Marketplace. We also investigate what … Read More → "The Future Will Be Blockchain(ed)"
This week’s episode of Fish Fry is all about artificial intelligence, machine vision, and basketball! Pulin Desai (Cadence Design Systems) and I discuss a couple of use cases that require a mix of both vision and artificial intelligence and why our “need for speed” has pushed for new design requirements in the mobile, AR/VR, surveillance, automotive and drone/robotics markets. We also … Read More → "Artificial Intelligence and the Need for Speed"
