Talk Title: “2018 Emerging Technologies, and the Technology Hype Cycle”  
Date: Sept 5, 2018 (Wednesday) 7:00 - 9:00 pm (Registration starts at 6:30pm)
Venue: ITRI Int’l, 2870 Zanker Rd., Suite #140, San Jose, CA
Come and learn about the newest emerging technologies.
Talk Title: “2018 Emerging Technologies, and Technology Hype Cycle”  by Dr. William Kao
Talk Abstract:
An “Emerging Technology” is any technology that is predicted will happen soon, but, for whatever reason isn't quite 'finished yet'. When new technologies make bold promises, how do you discern the hype from what's commercially viable?
The Technology Hype Cycle methodology gives you a view of how a technology or application will evolve over time, providing a sound source of insight to manage its deployment within the context of your specific business goals.
The 2018 Hype Cycle (just published in mid August) focuses on the set of new technologies (30+) that is showing promise in delivering a high degree of competitive advantage over the next five to 10 years.
This two hour seminar will present the newest set of emerging technologies with an overview of each technology. Some of the technologies include: General AI, flying autonomous vehicles, smart robots, blockchain, digital twin, biochips, augmented reality, 4D printing, smart dust, 5G, neuromorphic hardware,etc.
Don’t miss this highly educational and informative talk.
Speaker Bio: Dr. William Kao received his BSEE, MSEE and PhD from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. He worked in the Semiconductor and Electronic Design Automation industries for more than 30 years holding several senior and executive engineering management positions at Texas Instruments, Xerox Corporation, and Cadence Design Systems.
 Dr. Kao has authored more than 40 technical papers at IEEE Journals and Conferences, and holds eight software and IC design patents. He was an Adjunct Professor at UCLA Electrical Engineering Department where he taught courses in computer aided IC design.
