The importance of data is changing traditional value creation in electronics and forcing recalculations of return on investment.
The last couple of weeks have been busy with me participating on three panels that dealt with AI and machine learning in the contexts of automotive and aero/defense, in San Jose, Berlin and Detroit. The common theme? Data is indeed the new oil, and it messes with traditional value creation in electronics. Also, requirements for system design and verification are changing and there are completely new, blank-sheet opportunities that can help with verification and confirmation of what AI and ML actually do.
In the context of AI/ML, I have been using the movie quote a lot that “I think I am 90% excited and 10% scared, oh wait, perhaps I am 10% percent excited and 90% scared.” The recent panel discussions that I was part of did not help that much.
