    From the article:

    Google is experimenting with machine learning (ML) to perform place-and-route in IC design and is getting great results.


    “Better” includes performing place-and-route in extraordinarily less time. It might take a human expert weeks and weeks to accomplish the task. An ML placer typically does the same job in 24 hours, and its layouts typically have shorter wirelengths, Dean reported. The ML placer also did well against automated place-and-route tools.
