WHAT: The RISC-V Foundation CEO Calista Redmond will be giving a keynote at Open Source Summit Japan, co-located with the Automotive Linux Summit. The presentation, titled “Open, from Software to Silicon. The New Reality and Tremendous Opportunity of Custom, Open Source Processing,” will cover the evolution of the computing industry. Redmond will explain how the industry is seeing a shift from general purpose processors to custom processors amid trends including 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT), autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, machine learning, high performance computing (HPC) and other industries undergoing compute disruption. Redmond will highlight how an open source approach to processors reduces risk and investment, accelerates time to market and opens up the opportunity for thousands of possible custom processors. Attendees will also hear about innovative applications built with the RISC-V ISA from smart watches to supercomputers.
At Open Source Summit Japan more than 1,000 developers, operators, and industry leaders gather together to collaborate and learn about the latest open source technologies. The event covers a wide variety of technologies and trends around open source, including networking, serverless, edge computing, AI and more. The co-located Automotive Linux Summit will bring together industry leaders accelerating the development and adoption of a fully open software stack for the connected car.
