DescriptionGPU-accelerated computing and machine learning (ML) have revolutionized computer graphics, computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing. We expect ML and GPU-accelerated computing will also transform EDA software and as a result, chip design workflows. Recent research shows that orders of magnitudes of speedups are possible with accelerated computing platforms and that the combination of GPUs and ML can enable automation on tasks previously seen as intractable or too difficult to automate. This talk will cover near-term applications of GPUs and ML to EDA tools and chip design as well as a long term vision of what is possible. The talk will also cover advances in GPUs and ML-hardware that are enabling this revolution.
