Abstract

Artificial intelligence is quickly moving from science fiction to science fact. But how should industries harness AI to extract business insight from data? Drawing on a number of real-world examples from mobile apps, healthcare, and education, Michael Ludden explains how machine learning can be democratized, augmenting human understanding and knowledge with early-stage AI.

SUMMARY:

Executive management for software and services is different from that for hardware. There are specific challenges for innovating in software systems, recognizing talent, pushing the state-of-the-art, getting board/executive support, configuration management, beating down bugs, customer acceptance, and other areas.  Karen will tell us about some of her own opportunities and the “commandments” or guidelines that executive management (and department managers) should consider. She will focus on her high-tech management experience at United Technologies and at Synopsys, discussing software/tools management, research/education, women in tech management, and other topics of current interest.

(Karen’s bio is at the meeting-information URL.) — system-level design, modeling, and verification standards; CAD for high-reliability application-specific ICs; book and blog on standards; more.

Electronic Design Process Symposium

23rd Annual

Electronic Design Process Symposium
&
Cyber Security Workshop

April 21 & 22, 2016

Monterey Tides Hotel, Monterey, CA

The Electronic Design Processes Symposium (EDPS) provides a forum for a cross-section of the top thinkers, movers, and shakers who focus on how chips and systems are designed, and to discuss state-of-the-art electronic design processes and CAD methodologies. The symposium focuses on the improvement of the overall design process, rather than on the functions of the individual tools themselves.
