Adobe, Nokia, Samsung, Jaguar Land Rover, BMW and More Confirmed on the Programme at the Smithers Apex 7th Image Sensors Conference

Image Sensors 2014 organisers have released the full conference programme for 2014, consisting of a two day conference and an additional day of two pre-conference workshops.

Over 18 speakers have been confirmed to present over the two days, including Adobe, Nokia, Samsung, Jaguar Land Rover and BMW. The 2014 programme will feature end user insights and technical innovation from global image sensor experts. The peer-researched agenda will address current issues and opportunities facing the image sensor market, and will include five key sessions: Image Capture and Processing, Gesture Recognition, Global Shutter Sensors, Automotive Imaging and The Future of Digital Imaging.

Given extended coverage on the Image Sensors programme for 2014 is automotive imaging, bringing vision to vehicles of today and tomorrow. Attendees will hear exclusive papers from three OEMs – VW, BMW and Jaguar Land Rover as well as leading Tier 1 supplier Valeo, to give a detailed analysis of imaging in the automotive sector, and image sensor developer Melexis will present on the challenges facing sensor producers.

Speaking at Image Sensors is Dr JungChak Ahn from Samsung, Juha Alakarhu from Nokia, Prof Sylvain Paris of Abobe, and Lindsay Grant of ST Microelectronics, all with expert knowledge to share in the opening session on consumer imaging, focussed on the latest sensor innovations and image processing techniques.

Gesture recognition will be presented by pmdtechnologies and Texas Instruments who both have made significant steps in evolving this technology to the next level of user interface. Day 1’s closing session discusses global shutters, with an evaluation of the different technology pathways led by Guy Meynants of CMOSIS, Dr Shoji Kawahito of Brookman Technology and Dr Manuel Innocent of ON Semiconductor.

The closing session on day two delves into tomorrow’s technology, with a session on ‘The Future of Image Sensors’. High-speed imaging, artificial retina, next generation broadcast imaging, plastic electronics, and hyperspectral imagers will all be expertly covered by speakers from Ritsumeikan University, Nara Institute, BBC R&D, ISORG, and IMEC respectively. The session culminates with a closing Keynote from Prof Peter Seitz, sharing his experiences and vision for the future of semiconductor photosensing.

A workshop on, ‘A Million Images per Second and Beyond’ led by Dr Renato Turchetta, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and Dr Albert Theuwissen of Harvest Imaging poses the question, ‘What on earth shall I do with all these pixels?’. Both sessions incorporate three hour interactive workshops with discussion time alongside presentation slides. The workshops have proven a popular addition to the Image Sensors conference in recent years.

"NetApp's vision is how we help organizations manage data - delivering the right data in the right place, in the right time, to the people who need it, and doing it agnostic to what the platform is," explained Josh Atwell, Developer Advocate for NetApp, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regulatory scrutiny and increasing consumer lack of trust in technology in general.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
