Learning-Assisted IC Design Closure

We believe there is a great potential for employing ML across different stages of the design automation stack to expedite design closure by (1) minimizing human supervision in the overall design tuning process and (2) significantly reducing the time required to obtain accurate QoR estimation for a given design point ...
