will give a presentation entitled

Machine Learning and Hardware Security Technologies for the loT era: Challenges &

* * * *

This talk will highlight some of the emerging challenge s and opportunities for next generation machine learning and hardware security technologies in the rapidly evolving loT industry. New and emerging loT markets for autonomous vehicles, drones and wearables require even higher performance and security at much lower cost while reducing energy consumption. Some of the prominent barriers to designing high performance and energy-efficient multi-core microprocessors and SoCs in the sub-I 0nm technology nodes will be outlined. Emerging trends in SoC circuit design for machine learning and deep neural networks, specialized accelerators for nearest­ neighbor computing and reconfigurable multi-precision matrix multipliers, ultra-low-voltage logic and memory circuits, on-chip interconnect fabric circuits, ultra-lightweight encryption engines, physically unclonable functions and fully-digital random number generator security building blocks are described. Future brain-inspired neuromorphic computing circuit design challenges and technologies will also be reviewed.
