DescriptionUndetected errors produced by computing systems, also called silent errors, have major consequences ranging from loss of data and services, to financial and productivity losses, or even loss of human life. Silent errors produced by computing hardware have been recently identified as a highly critical challenge in several articles by Google, Meta, and New York Times.

Is this business as usual or do we need a paradigm shift? Will industrial teams alone be able to drive ground-breaking solutions? How can academia seize this golden opportunity to create radically new design and test solutions? What collaborations between device technologies, hardware design and test, EDA, IP ecosystem, and software systems are essential? What are the barriers to such collaborations today? Please join this diverse panel and brainstorm out-of-the-box solutions that can have a lasting impact on the computing industry, from (self-driving) cars to cloud computing in the data center. We look forward to the wisdom and insights from the panelists, firing line experts, and, very importantly, YOU – the audience.
