CEO Perspective – Innovation Requires IC Integrity
By Raik Brinkmann, OneSpin Solutions
I’m fascinated with cars, and there is a very famous car maker museum that I visited recently where they gave a thorough rundown of the history of each of their cars from how they are designed, to the materials they used, to the evolution of energy efficiency. It wasn’t until the last exhibit where they talked about the future of automobiles and how AI, including machine learning, is the driving force behind the next several generations of cars and transportation in general. The exhibit went on to explain how each phase of autonomous learning will be exponentially more difficult than the one before. Each phase requires more significant “horse‐power” in terms of data processing, how that data gets connected to everything else, and the customizations “under the hood” to the processors and SoCs.
