Join us for the inaugural event of the Lodz Open Source Meetup series - Lodz Open Source Meetup #1!
Thursday, 16th January 2020 we will be welcoming the Lodz open source community with two presentations, a Q&A session, giveaways and a socializing & networking afterparty to get to know your interests, projects and contributions to open source in high tech.
Don’t miss the opportunity to learn more about state-of-the-art open source technologies and sign up today.
1. An introduction to state-of-the-art Deep Learning applications; Grzegorz Latosiński, Antmicro
Nowadays, deep learning does not cease to amaze with its ability to solve various problems which seemed to be a tall order for the computers not so long ago. Thanks to the increasing computational power and open-source approach of developing deep learning frameworks and applications, we can observe newer and better algorithms for the well-known problems and algorithms for completely new and interesting tasks. This presentation will briefly introduce you to the basic mechanisms of the deep neural networks algorithms and various state-of-the-art deep learning applications.
2. Linux on RISC-V; Karol Gugała, Antmicro
This presentation will cover new developments in the state of Linux on RISC-V, the wildly successful open source ISA (instruction set architecture) and the implications of using a popular open source operating system on a free and open computer architecture adopted by major semiconductors and tech companies - Google, NVIDIA, NXP, Qualcomm, Microchip, Western Digital and others.
The talk will discuss i.a. progress in 32-bit Linux, the RISC-V Getting Started Guide, and the collaboration between CHIPS Alliance and the RISC-V Foundation to curate high-quality open source RTL code relevant to the design of Open Source CPUs, RISC-V based SoCs and complex peripherals for FPGAs and custom silicon.
Registration will be at the entry based on the meetup attendee list. You will be asked to provide your name, surname and affiliation. You have to be an adult to attend. Upon entering the venue, you agree that you might be photographed/filmed.
After the presentations, stay with us for socializing and more discussions at the evening afterparty sponsored by Antmicro with a delicious cold and hot dinner menu, and a selection of regional craft beer and drinks!
