Maker Faire

by @ 2:07 pm. Filed under ALL, Consumer Electronics, Electronics Design

Maker Faire coming to the San Mateo Event Center on May 20-22!MakerFaire

Part science fair, part county fair, and part something entirely new, Maker Faire is an all-ages gathering of tech enthusiasts, crafters, educators, tinkerers, hobbyists, engineers, science clubs, authors, artists, students, and commercial exhibitors. All of these “makers” come to Maker Faire to show what they have made and to share what they have learned.

Scheduled talks include “The Hacker’s Guide to the Galaxy”, “Process is the Product: It’s Not What You Make; It’s How You Make It”, “Give Your Robot the Brains of a Smartphone”, “Predicting the Future: A Tale of Smartphones and Cheeseburgers”, “The Importance of Building Useless Things”, and “Design Meets Machine Learning”

Transforming the Future – IoT, 3D Printing & Robotics Conference will be held Thursday, June 9, 2016 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara. The SME Silicon Valley nonprofit group and co-sponsors IEEE-SCV-CPMT, IEEE SCV-RAS, and IEEE-SCV-CE present an exciting one-day conference with 20+ speakers.
Topics covered include:
* Medical robotics – shows growth innovation and development of surgical tools to improve patient outcomes
* 3D bioprinting of blood vessels and new body organs
* Cancer treatments through automation – more precise than ever before
* The future of autonomous systems, from driverless cars to space robots

Keynote: “Decoding the Customer: Innovation and Development in Medical Robotics”, Intuitive Surgical. Other talks include “Smarter, Connected, and More Precise Cancer Treatments Through Automation”, Varian Medical Systems. Enjoy on-site interaction with 3D printing, robotics, and laser equipment

A Career Fair will be held from 4:15 to 6:00 pm, and is free to conference attendees and job seekers. Receive a $20 discount with promo code “IEEE2016”.
