VP, AI & Central Engineering at Synopsys

A little more than two years ago, Synopsys became one of the inaugural partners of the IBM Research AI Hardware Center. As its name implies, the AI Hardware Center is a focused effort to address the challenge of developing a new generation of AI-enabled chips and systems. The Center is designed to be “… the nucleus of a new ecosystem of research and commercial partners collaborating with IBM researchers to further accelerate the development of AI-optimized hardware innovations.”

The goal of the initiative is straightforward: improve AI performance by 1,000x in 10 years.
