Building a Silicon Compiler

Some of the latest machine learning methods point to the need for much faster hardware.   Both at the Edge and for large scale learning and maintenance of AI knowledge. 

DARPA Unveils $100M EDA Project
Two programs aim to craft ‘silicon compiler’
By Rick Merritt  in EE Times

SAN JOSE, Calif. — The U.S. will pour $100 million into two research programs over the next four years to create the equivalent of a silicon compiler aimed at significantly lowering the barriers to design chips. The programs, involving 15 companies and more than 200 researchers, were described for the first time in a talk at the Design Automation Conference here.

The two programs are just part of the Electronics Resurgence Initiative (ERI) expected to receive $1.5 billion over the next five years to drive the U.S. electronics industry forward. ERI will disclose details of its other programs at an event in Silicon Valley in late July. ... "
