DAC in the Saddle Again

Food Trucks, Art Shows, and Design Automation

What do algorithmic art, food truck fare, and EDA software have in common? This year’s Design Automation Conference! In this week’s Fish Fry, we get a special sneak peek into the year’s biggest EDA event with DAC Chairman Chuck Alpert. Chucks gives us the lowdown on all of the coolest events at the expo this year (Austin food trucks on the show floor?!), the details of the inaugural DAC art show and super cool keynotes (soccer playing robots?!), and much more. Also this week, we take a closer look at how a unique collaboration between Posterscope and NBS is hoping to stop mosquitoes dead in their tracks – one billboard at a time.
