Title: AI for EDA

Speaker: Yu Huang, HiSilicon, Huawei

Abstract: Electronic Design Automation (EDA) is critical for designing and manufacturing integrated circuits. Recent advancements of AI technologies can help improving the traditional EDA technology and transferring the IC design experiences from old designs to new designs or from old technologies to the new ones. In this talk, we will take a look of a few examples that apply AI to EDA and demonstrate the advantages of such technologies.

Bio: Dr. Yu Huang is Semiconductor Scientist at Huawei Technologies Co., and EDA Chief Architect of HiSilicon. Before Joining HiSilicon, he was Sr. Key Expert of Mentor Graphics (now Siemens EDA).
