Application of VLSI in Artificial Intelligence
This paper describes the application of VLSI (Very Large Scale Integrated) circuit in Artificial Intelligence (AI). VLSI is the inter-disciplinary science of utilizing advance semiconductor technology to create various functions of computer system. This manuscript addresses the close link of microelectronics and AI. By combining VLSI technology, a very powerful computer architecture confinement is possible. Gone are the days when massive computers made-up of vacuum tubes sat humming in entire dedicated rooms and could do about 360 multiplications of 10 digit numbers in a second. Though they were heralded as the fastest computing machines of that time, they surely do not stand a chance when compared to the modern day machines.
