About this event

With classical technology scaling running out of steam, predictions of doom and gloom about the future of the computer business abound. However, as we move from an era of human-centric connectivity to a new machine-centric era, there are numerous opportunities to innovate, providing solutions that can scale to hundreds of billions or even trillions of interconnected intelligent devices. The defining feature of this era will be that computers become invisible and move from attention-grabbing devices into the background. For some this is utopia, for others it conjures the imagery of George Orwell. This talk will examine the technology underpinnings of this interconnected future and explore how the notion of trust must evolve to keep pace with both engineering and social developments. How do we measure trust? How do we design trustworthy systems when no one has full control and overall understanding? How do we know that artificial intelligence is doing what it is supposed to? ...

The Prestige Lecture will be given by Dr. Krisztian Flautner who is vice president of technology at ARM.  Previously, Kris was general manager of the Internet of Things Business Unit and VP of Research and Development at ARM.  He is focused on new business opportunities and the proliferation of ARM technologies.  He received a PhD in computer science and engineering, along with a number of other degrees, from the University of Michigan, where he has also served as a visiting scholar.  He has authored or co-authored over 80 publications, including key contributions on computer architecture, software, and microarchitecture.  Dr. Flautner received various best paper awards including the 2017 ISCA influential paper award for groundbreaking research in power-efficient computing, to show that at least one of these ideas received broad adoption by the industry and researchers alike.
