The Significance of Sparsity

Tensilica DNA 100 Processor IP and the Challenges of On-Device AI

What has sparsity done for you lately? In this episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the challenges that surround on-device artificial intelligence processing. Megha Daga (Cadence Design Systems) and I discuss the why the presence of zeroes is becoming more and more important in the development of neural networks and how sparsity can be used for bandwidth and compute reduction. In this week’s News You May Have Missed, we check out how the the University of Adelaide is making huge strides in quantum memory technology with a little help from an atomic tractor beam and the world’s first “waveguide trap”.

Industrial CbM Solutions from Sensing to Actionable Insight

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Analog Devices

Condition based monitoring (CBM) has been a valuable tool for industrial applications for years but until now, the adoption of this kind of technology has not been very widespread. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Maurice O’Brien from Analog Devices about how CBM can now be utilized across a wider variety of industrial applications and how Analog Device’s portfolio of CBM solutions can help you avoid unplanned downtime in your next industrial design.
