Awesome++ Opening Keynote by Clive “Max” Maxfield

Max will be presenting a very interesting opening keynote at this year’s FPGA-forum in September:

FPGAs and Other Awesome Technologies for the 21st Century

One of the great things about being Max is that — since he writes about high-tech topics for various online publications, coupled with his providing technical writing and consulting services to a cornucopia of high-tech companies — he gets to hear about many of the latest and greatest technologies before they appear on the market.

Even better, Max is not tied to any subject sector or technological territory; instead, he’s free to meander around gathering noteworthy nuggets of knowledge and tasty tidbits of trivia. He may start the day learning about a new artificial intelligence neural network processor, after which he might find himself up to his armpits in virtual reality, and just a little later he could be feasting his eyes 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 he’s had his breakfast.

In this keynote presentation, in addition to the latest and greatest in FPGA space, Max says we will take a tour around a curated selection of the weird and wonderful things he’s been exposed to recently, focusing on anything that has made him exclaim, “Ooh, Shiny!” Max also notes that, as is usually the case in his presentations, we will be leaping from topic to topic with the agility of young mountain goats, so he urges attendees to dress appropriately and responsibly.
