Speaker: Harry Foster
Presentation Title: The Three Pillars of Intent-Focused Insight
Abstract: We are in the midst of a verification crisis manifested by a growing gap between verification efficiency and effectiveness. This crisis cannot be solved through improvements in verification methodologies and techniques alone. Indeed, it requires a philosophical change in the way we approach design, with an emphasis on bug prevention. We refer to this fundamental change as design using intent-focused insight.
