Well the first post of this year is going to be on DesignCon. Being the chairman for the AMS track, I wanted to create, in addition of the track, some specific events that would relate to behavioral modeling. Behavioral modeling is a vast topic that can be approached through different angles, specifically at a conference as broad as DesignCon.
I put together two events, a tutorial and a panel, and I got fortunate to get industry experts to present and discuss each domain. I am listing below information for each event.
The tutorial can be accessed at:

I have interviewed below our speakers to give us more insights on their material.
The panel will then conclude our AMS track by discussing those approaches, the motivations behind behavioral modeling but also its future.
Some of the questions:
