In this talk, Andy Walls will describe the technology that lies behind the revolution in data storage based on his having worked at the cutting edge of every iteration since the early 1980s. Like history itself, storage technology tends to repeat itself - and understanding where we came from will allow Andy to also provide a view into the future.
AV-SIG: Automated Driving - Deployment Models and Business Scenarios
In this talk, John Black will present a tour of how optical techniques available today allow a surgical tool to sense both temperature and force in real time, and how the optical analog of ultrasound is being used to equip surgical instruments with the ability to allow the physician to image the tissue they are interacting with, and to thereby make a treatment decision in real time.
In this talk, CNSV member Walt Maclay will explain how today's smart devices are benefiting from the ongoing development of low-cost high-volume sensors, and their interaction with the cloud infrastructure. He will also discuss the latest trends and challenges for IoT and wearable devices.
The new tax law can have a profound effect on how a consulting business is treated by the IRS. This seminar will provide clarity for several issues, including claiming the 20% 199A deduction and the deductions for entertainment. This event is co-sponsored by IEEE-CNSV and PATCA. Anyone registering must pay the $30 fee, and both CNSV and PATCA members who register and attend will have their registration fee refunded.
Since we’ve lost the exponentially increasing resources provided by Dennard scaling and Moore’s law, we need radical architectural innovation to significantly improve cost, performance, energy and security. Aided by open source, agily-developed prototypes will demonstrate advances and thereby accelerate commercial adoption of new architectures.
Based on his book "The Tym Before … The Untold Origins of Cloud Computing," Nathan Gregory will tell the story not only of Tymnet and its parent company Tymshare, but also of the development of the ARPANET into today’s Internet.
If you are a creative person, you likely have created intellectual property - including in ways you might now realize. Understanding contracts and the laws governing intellectual property is an important part of protecting your interests, particularly if you are a consultant.
Jonathan C. Baer, co-author of "Decoding Silicon Valley: The Insider’s Guide," will discuss his new book, including how in which Silicon Valley’s entrepreneurs have refined the art of company-building into a science.
The secret to the success of robotics consultancy OLogic in helping to launch over 100 successful robotics projects in the toys, education, consumer electronics and service robots industries will be discussed by Ted Larson, OLogic's CEO and co-founder.
Autonomous Vehicles SIG (AV-SIG): NIO: A New Autonomous Electric Vehicle Startup
In this presentation we’ll uncover details and best practices that can shed light on how multi-physics simulation is making a systems driven product development approach possible for smart household appliances.
