Keynote Speaker Copenhagen 2022

Keynote speaker: Matti Tommiska, Xiphera Ltd, Finland
Title: Post-Quantum Cryptography and the Added Vallue of FPGAs

Abstract: If large-scale quantum computers could be built, they would be able to solve the hard mathematical problems that are the basis of the current public-key cryptography. Consequently, quantum computing poses a serious threat to the security of the Internet. Post-Quantum Cryptography (PQC) refers to cryptographic algorithms that can be implemented on traditional computing platforms – such as FPGAs – but are based on mathematical problems that remain secure even against quantum attacks. This talk reviews the status of PQC and discusses how the reprogrammability of FPGAs adds value during the multi-year transition period from classical algorithms to PQC.

CV: Matti has worked with FPGAs since 1995, when he started working as a researcher in the Electrical Engineering Department at the Helsinki University of Technology (nowadays part of Aalto University). He finished his Ph.D. thesis in 2005, and at the same time moved to work in the semiconductor industry, where he held both technical and sales roles at Spansion, Altera, and Intel. Since co-founding Xiphera in 2017 Matti has been the full-time Managing Director of Xiphera.

Keynote Speakers Stockholm 2022

Keynote speaker: Magnus Peterson, Synective Labs AB, Sweden
Title: FPGAs for Deep Learning applications – Trends, solutions, and tools

Abstract: Deep Learning has over the last years become a game-changer in many fields, adding extraordinary capabilities to systems and products. With strong competition from other technologies, FPGAs are in many cases a leading candidate platform for deep learning implementation, combining high performance, low power, and high flexibility. Seeing new high-volume opportunities, like automotive vision applications, the FPGA vendors have put large efforts into developing streamlined design flows for easy integration of deep learning inference engines into an FPGA design.

This talk will look at
the current trends and present different ways of implementing Deep Learning inference on FPGAs. It will also walk you through the different approaches taken by the different FPGA vendors and their different deep learning toolsets.

CV: Magnus has more than 35 years of experience from developing high performance embedded solutions, mainly within vision and image processing, where FPGAs play a key role. He has been with Synective Labs since 2003 and worked previously with vision-based industrial inspection systems at Innovativ Vision AB.

Keynote Speakers Stockholm 2022

Keynote speaker: Adam Taylor, Adiuvo, England
Title: Challenges we face in achieving FPGA safety and security

Abstract: According to the Wilson Group survey 84% of FPGA designs are released into the field with a non-trivial bug, in safety or security applications it can lead to injury, death, environmental impact, or a significant security breach. FPGAs are increasingly used for “commercial” applications such as IOT, autonomous driving, medical, and fintech. Worryingly only 52% of designs consider implementing security features and worse only 47% implement a safety-critical design.
The keynote will discuss the challenges we face in achieving safety and security on budget and schedule, and what are the key challenges which face us technical, personal, and community. How can we work together as a community to develop education, frameworks, and approaches which enable safety and security to be addressed in our developments?

CV: Adam is Chartered Engineer, Senior Member of the IEEE, Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology, Visiting Professor of Embedded Systems at the University of Lincoln and Arm Innovator, Edge Impulse Ambassador, he is also the owner of the engineering and consultancy company Adiuvo Engineering and Training which develops embedded solutions for high reliability, mission critical and space applications. Current projects include ESA Plato, Lunar Gateway, Generic Space Imager, UKSA TreeView and several other clients across the world. FPGAs are Adam ‘s first love, he is the author of numerous articles and papers on electronic design and FPGA design including over 440 blogs and 30 million plus views on how to use the Zynq and Zynq MPSoC for Xilinx.
