The Future of Autonomous Systems with Silicon Lifecycle Management: Dr. Yervant Zorian

0:13 / 32:05

Dr. Yervant Zorian is a pioneer in the field of Silicon Lifecycle Management (SLM). He has made significant contributions to the development of self-repairing and self-contained intelligent systems. In this interview, Dr. Zorian discusses the evolution of autonomous systems, from single-transistor systems to self-driving cars. He explains how silicon lifecycle management can be used to predict and prevent failures in autonomous systems. Dr. Zorian also talks about the importance of globalization and collaboration in the tech industry. He believes that Armenia has the potential to become a major hub for innovation in the years to come. Here are some of the key points from the interview: * Silicon lifecycle management is a critical component of autonomous systems. It can be used to predict and prevent failures, which can help to improve safety and reliability. * Globalization and collaboration are essential for innovation in the tech industry. * Armenia has the potential to become a major hub for innovation, but it needs to invest in education and infrastructure. * AI is changing our professions. It also creates new opportunities. We need to be prepared for these changes and learn how to use AI to our advantage. Dr. Yervant Zorian is a Chief Architect and Fellow at Synopsys, as well as President of Synopsys Armenia. Formerly, he was Vice President and Chief Scientist of Virage Logic, Chief Technologist at LogicVision, and a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff AT&T Bell Laboratories. He is currently the President of IEEE Test Technology Technical Council (TTTC), the founder and chair of the IEEE 1500 Standardization Working Group, the Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of the IEEE Design and Test of Computers and an Adjunct Professor at University of British Columbia. He served on the Board of Governors of Computer Society and CEDA, was the Vice President of IEEE Computer Society, and the General Chair of the 50th Design Automation Conference (DAC) and several other symposia and workshops. Dr. Zorian holds 35 US patents, has authored four books, published over 350 refereed papers and received numerous best paper awards. A Fellow of the IEEE since 1999, Dr. Zorian was the 2005 recipient of the prestigious Industrial Pioneer Award for his contribution to BIST, and the 2006 recipient of the IEEE Hans Karlsson Award for diplomacy. He received the IEEE Distinguished Services Award for leading the TTTC, the IEEE Meritorious Award for outstanding contributions to EDA, and in 2014, the Republic of Armenia’s National Medal of Science. He received an MS degree in Computer Engineering from University of Southern California, a PhD in Electrical Engineering from McGill University, and an MBA from Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania.
