Special Session #2
Circuits and Systems for Artificial Intelligence and Security

Organizers: Prof. Hanho Lee (Inha University, Korea)

Artificial intelligence (AI) and Security are playing an increasingly crucial role in the IoT, 5G/6G, and smart mobility applications, and they have also become the fundamental components of modern intelligent society. The applications of AI, post-quantum cryptography, homomorphic encryption for IoT, 5G/6G and smart mobility need to be portable, lightweight, low-latency and high-speed to provide reliable service. Meanwhile, massive devices connected to the edge of communication networks should be post-quantum safe and secure, because emerging quantum computers can easily crack the traditional public-key ciphers. To meet the requirements of high-throughput and diverse application scenarios of next-generation communications and autonomous mobility, it is necessary to resort to configurable and low-latency algorithms and architectures of AI and security. The high-performance, low-latency domain specific architecture has become a trend of circuits and systems design in the post-Moore era, which can also be applied to the AI and security in a wide range of applications.
