Mindboggling Technologies of Today and Tomorrow
One of the great things about being me (in addition to my dashing good looks and trend-setting sense of style) is that -- based on the fact that I write about high-tech topics for various online publications, coupled with my providing technical writing and consulting services to a cornucopia of high-tech companies -- I get to hear about many of the latest and greatest technologies before they appear on the market (I also get to write long sentences).
Even better, I’m not tied to any subject sector or technological territory; instead, I’m free to meander around gathering noteworthy nuggets of knowledge and tasty tidbits of trivia. At any particular time, you may find me learning about something like a new artificial intelligence neural network processor, after which I might find myself up to my armpits in virtual reality, and just a little later I could well be feasting my orbs on next-generation camera-sensor combos that are only 1 mm thick for use in state-of-the-art machine vision systems -- and all of this before I’ve had my breakfast.
In this presentation, we will take a tour around a curated selection of the weird and wonderful things I’ve been exposed to recently, including anything I’ve found interesting or has made me exclaim, “Ooh, Shiny!” As is usually the case in my presentations, we will be leaping from topic to topic with the agility of young mountain goats, so I urge you to dress appropriately and responsibly.
