What do IC design for test, the Tessent multi-die software solution and the best semiconductor material of all time have in common? This week’s podcast of course! My guest Vidya Neerkundar (Siemens) and I discuss trends in the IC industry today, the unique testing challenges for today’s cutting edge integrated circuits and why automation for 2D and 3D IC design-for-test is the way of the future. Also this week, I investigate a new semiconductor material that is being called the best of all time.
I have been fascinated by the manipulation of light since I was a kid. In another Fish Fry podcast playlist on Youtube, I investigate a variety of innovations in photonics. I chat with Dr. Eyal Cohen (Co-founder and CEO of Cognifiber) about Cognifiber’s glass-based chips, proprietary fibers, and embedded waveguides, and why the advancement of this kind of technology could revolutionize the world of edge computing. I also investigate a new ultra-compact integrated photonic device developed by University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering that could pave the way for a new class of integrated photonic … Read More → "Fish Fry 500: The Best of Photonics (Now on Youtube!)"
In my Fish Fry podcast this week, Amol Borkar from Cadence Design Systems joins me to discuss the evolution of always-on devices, the role that AI and sensors are playing in the trajectory of always-on device development and the requirements needed for the next generation of always-on devices.
Let’s Twist, Turn and Pressurize! Element14’s Robotics Challenge and New Robotic Grippers Inspired by Jellyfish
Are you ready to twist, turn and get your robotics groove on? Longtime friend of the show Phil Hutchinson from Element14 joins me this week to chat about Element14’s new Twist, Turn and Move Robotics Design Challenge. I also investigate a new kind of robotic gripper inspired by jellyfish.
AI once again takes center stage in this week’s Fish Fry podcast! Johanna Pingel from MathWorks and I discuss the differences between complexity vs. explainability in artificial intelligence, how you will know if explainability is right for your application and how explainability will impact the future of AI. Also this week, I examine how AI could help predict extreme wildfire danger.
A topic that is near and dear to my heart takes center stage in this week’s podcast: sustainability. Iain Galloway (NXP) and Richard Fix (Bosch Sensortec) join me to discuss how you can help solve real-world societal challenges with the NXP HoverGames. We also discuss the variety of components and technologies provided to contestants of this unique design contest and why sustainable food ecosystems is the theme of this year’s HoverGames. Also this week, keeping with our sustainability theme, I how AI is helping save Norway’s endangered Atlantic salmon.
In this week’s podcast, I investigate edge-based data capture and AI computing in military programs with David Freeman (Mercury) and Randy Hayes (VAST Data Federal). We discuss the challenges involved with big data, mission critical AI and machine learning applications in rugged environments and how a new data center-class, all-flash network-attached storage system can help solve these issues. Also this week, I check out a new autonomous off-road combat vehicle developed by DARPA that can drive as fast as a human driver and navigate extremely rugged terrain.
Is AI the new electricity? What is the role of AI in disinformation and misinformation? How do we survive and thrive through the AI Revolution? In this week’s podcast, I investigate all of this and more with author, founder of the Next Wave Institute and AI expert Peter Scott. Peter and I also examine Google’s LaMDA research, the motivation to write his book Artificial Intelligence and You” and why Peter believes that AI is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.
How about some high-performance DSPs to spice up your Friday? Maybe with a sprinkling of robots? In this week’s podcast, Dave Bell from Cadence Design Systems joins me to chat about the trends driving the need for high-performance DSPs, the benefits that Tensilica ConnX 110 and 120 DSPs can bring to your next design and why ISA compatibility is crucial in this arena. Also this week, I check out some new drones developed by a multi-national team of researchers that could change the future of building construction.
AI is the name of the game this week! My special guest is Wei Li, VP and GM, Artificial Intelligence and Analytics (AIA) at Intel. Wei and I dig into the details of Intel’s new Open Source AI Reference Kits. We discuss the motivation to create these open source kits, why community involvement is crucial to Intel’s AI Everywhere campaign, and how engineers of varying levels of expertise can take advantage of these new reference kits. Also this week, I investigate the first AI pilot developed by a team of researchers from the Robotics Institute … Read More → "AI Everywhere (and for Everyone): Intel Builds A Bridge Between Data and Insight"
