Microprocessors in the 1980s, today and in the future
Thursday 13 October 2016 at 7pm
Sophie Wilson, co-designer of the BBC microprocessor and the chip in the vast majority of today's smartphones, will cast her expert eye over microprocessor developments and implications since the 1980s and where the technology might be going.
Sophie Wilson is a British computer scientist and software engineer. She co- designed the BBC Micro-Computer, the first of a long line of computers sold by Acorn Computers Ltd, and its programming language BBC BASIC. She later designed the instruction set of the ARM processor, today used in more than 90% of today's smartphones.
This is Sophie’s fourth visit to talk at TNMOC – her talks are very popular, so early booking is highly recommended!
Would love to go along to this but seems unlikely I'll be able to make it on a school night, as it were.
