Practical Application of AI/ML to EDA Problems

Presented In-Person

Organizers:  Leigh Anne Clevenger – Silicon Integration Initiative, Inc
                        Terry Berke – Silicon Integration Initiative

In this tutorial, a cross-section of industry presenters will lead attendees through case studies of real applications. Our goal is to ease the path to AI/ML adoption in EDA by bridging education, openness, and trust gaps. Starting from generic concepts (neural networks, data representation, model training, and related software tools), we will develop step-by-step AI/ML flows geared towards solving concrete problems in parasitic estimation and analog design automation.This tutorial will update the EDA end-users and tool developers on current industry advances in AI/ML for EDA. The target audience is engineers and tool developers from industry and academia who want a practical guide to using AI/ML in their daily work. Each case study will include: why is this problem important, how to discover and label the EDA-data feature set, a demonstration of the ML methodology, and practical instruction for applying these methods.
