Thwarting Pirates with AI and X-fest 2014

At Attention Ye Salty Dogs! Hoist the mizzen mast, Fish Fry is ready to set sail! This week Jim Beneke comes aboard our mighty Fish Fryin’ ship to plot a course to X-Fest – the yearly how-to training sessions from Avnet and Xilinx for FPGA, DSP, SoC and embedded systems designers. Join us as we dig into X-Fest’s treasure trove of deep tech seminars, trainings, and much more. Then, in keeping with our pirateous parade, we delve into the details of a new pirate-busting radarrrr called WatchStander, and check out how artificial intelligence plays an important role in WatchStander’s modus operandi.
