It is always a privilege when your professors call you. The biggest one was when Federal University of Technology Owerri (FUTO) asked me to deliver the University Public Lecture, the zenith of any academic gathering. So, it was another moment when Nigeria Computer Society sent an invitation for me to deliver this year’s keynote speech. The theme is “Innovative Systems for Digital Economy”.
I plan to go very technical to inspire our young people. There is a project we are working on here in Silicon Valley in a startup I am serving as a technical design mentor. The young people are building systems that use less power, hoping to make “electronics” that last longer on a single charge.
To do that, they are building a new computational paradigm, mimicking human biology and synaptic plasticity in the construct of the event-driven asynchronous parallelism in the human central nervous system. If that happens, electronics like phones will run longer and we will use less energy: that is innovation for the future.
So, mark the date: Aug 3-5 2021. It would be a great talk.---
