As society talks more about artificial intelligence and the role it will play in our future, a key question that NXP is looking at is how to make AI and ML safe in terms of our development processes?

At NXP, we develop a function for our hardware from the formal requirements given by our customer. For these requirements to work, we start by listing some known inputs – these are the use cases. A use case could be the location a radar sensor has in the car (front-facing, corner), the operating voltage of an electric vehicle’s battery or the number of screens in a car’s cockpit. We can then define the design and verify that the function behaves as we are expecting it to—not only in simulation, but also in the field. In the field we are incapable of controlling what the function will actually have as inputs, and we therefore design our functions to be as robust as possible within the chosen use-cases…
