Pixelated Perfection

What makes your pocket-sized screen picture perfect? There is a good chance Pixelworks has something to do with it. In this week’s podcast, Peter Carson (Pixelworks) and I dig into the details of innovative Pixelworks’ image processing platform and why the preservation of artistic intent is cornerstone to the Pixelworks vision. Also this week, we take a closer look at a new neural network training technique called deep reinforcement learning developed at Pittsburgh's Carnegie Mellon University that could turn drones into self-directed aerial cinematographers.

Up Up and Away

“I think everybody understands how important the cloud is.” - Marc Benioff

They say every cloud has a silver lining but does every silver lining have a cloud? In this week’s Fish Fry podcast, Craig Johnson (Cadence Design Systems) joins us to discuss a variety of cloud strategies. We investigate how priorities and usage models should influence our choice of cloud models and why different clouds for different folks is always the way to go. Also this week, we check out how a group of researchers at the University of ILL at Urbana-Champaign may  discovered the key to the future of long distance space travel. (Spoiler Alert: SALT!)

From Chip to City and Back Again

"Here's your ticket pack your bag: time for jumpin' overboard.
The transportation is here.
Close enough but not too far, Maybe you know where you are." - Talking Heads

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, we investigate the complexities of data processing in coming age of 5G. Wade Smith (ANSYS) joins us to discuss the challenges of 5G and edge computing and why multi-physics analysis will be crucial to the development of 5G systems. Also, don’t forget to stick around for this week’s special News You Have Missed segment: “Off the Cuff with Amelia Dalton”.
