Samsung Exynos Chips will be designed by Artificial Intelligence

| |

Artificial Intelligence is the new trend in chip design. Samsung, an electronics giant who has used Exynos chipsets for years now plans to upgrade their processors using AI technology from Synopsys.

Samsung already uses artificial intelligence (AI)​in its smartphones and this year they will introduce a next-generation processor that incorporates machine learning techniques and deep neural networks into the manufacturing process itself as opposed to simply programming them beforehand which can result in more efficient power consumption of up 36% by 2020 according to some reports.

Synopsys is one of the world’s largest suppliers of chip design software (EDA). The chairman claimed that DSO.ai, a commercial AI software for processor design, was “the first virtual designer in history.” However Samsung recently announced its plans to use reinforcement learning to automatically search and find the best solution with improved efficiency.

In order to fully understand the process of making a chip, it is important first that we know how chips are made. Chips must have their logic design completed by engineers before they can be manufactured; this is accomplished through layout and routing designs for each transistor placement in addition to connections between them.

Engineers have an instinctive understanding of how different designs will make chips. But this understanding is difficult to write into computer code and so, engineers are using a new technique that resembles reinforcement learning in order to design the best chip for performance, power consumption and area (ie PPA). The number of possibilities can be astronomical at 10⁹⁰³² or more than one trillion billion million illion possible solutions but they still need to find similarities among these many choices without knowing everything about them.

Reinforcement learning trains DSO.ai to maximize profits through penalties for bad decisions and rewards for good ones while AlphaZero improves its game strategy with self-learning games that generate a data stream of optimal choices from the computer it’s controlling–all in order to learn more reliable design solutions as quickly as possible.

DSO.ai has developed an AI-powered design tool that will continue to self-learn and grow in intelligence as it works on more projects for Synopsys. This is one of the reasons why DSO’s 18% increased chip frequency, 21% reduced power consumption, and shortened engineering time from six months to a month are so valuable – these numbers are only going up with this new technology.

Samsung has always been a pioneer in the realm of technology, but with this new AI chip and all its potential to offer, will it be priced accordingly? Samsung phones are usually on par or even more expensive than other competitors. The question is how much cheaper would these devices need to get before consumers consider buying them over Apple’s iPhones for example?

In recent years smartphones have become an integral part of society–even those who might not typically use one now own at least some type of mobile device such as tablets. This trend isn’t stopping anytime soon either; every year we see rapid advancements being made in both hardware and software that could potentially change our lives forever! One company leading the charge toward a brighter future is South Korean-based tech giant.
