Description

The Emerging Technology SIG examines specific new technologies and applications, as well as technology trends and opportunities across markets and industries. We don't mind if a technology has one foot in the lab; we do avoid those that are "established" in any sense of the word.

Recent talks have included indoor 3D mapping, improved internet protocols, emerging directions in programming languages, crowdsourced image processing, and cargo control in seaports. Since almost every technology contains some software, we range widely and fearlessly :)

Emerging Technology SIGs are free for SVForum members, and non-members who register in advance.

We meet the 4th Wednesday of every month. Please join us!

Interested in speaking at one of our events? Please email EmergingTechSIG@SVForum.org.

"Doctors 3D-printed an emergency airway tube that saved a 20-month old baby boy’s life. After imaging the boy’s faulty windpipe, doctors at the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital printed 100 tiny tubes and laser-stitched them together over the trachea."

Boise State student Joshua Kiepert built a Raspberry Pi-based Beowulf Cluster for less than $2,000 that turned in a HPL peak performance of 10.13 GFLOPS. There's a photo. The fans are held in place with electrical tape.
 

The way history worked, pens and brushes were invented millennia before the printing press - artistry before printing.

Which got us into the modern age.

Now, not only can 2D be printed - books and copies and newspapers - but 3D things can be created and manufactured based on plot points and axis control and software.
