Ethics and Explainability related to Artificial Intelligence

Ethics and Explainability related to Artificial Intelligence

Since today’s artificial intelligence does not develop an awareness of what it learns, AI in principle is completely objective. Therefore the risks of using AI are related to the data and not in the AI itself. The current discussion of AI and ethics aims to prevent artificial intelligence systems from discriminating people.

3x Acceleration of FPGA and ASIC Development and Validation

The developer’s kit CertifEye is a development, debug, and validation solution. It provides developers with infrastructure that injects known images and videos into FPGA/ASIC processing (IP) or an ISP pipeline under test, process them in FPGAs in near or real time, and return results back to the host.

Reduce Time to Market with Transport Layer IP Cores

Reduce Time to Market with Transport Layer IP Cores

Several months of work by protocol engineers is typically required to design an interface for a vision system. A number of vision camera manufactures, such as Ozray, Crevis and Sick, are addressing this challenge by purchasing transport layer interfaces in the form of intellectual property (IP) which is provided ready to incorporate into FPGAs along with other camera features.
