Please join us for a brief Annual General Meeting (AGM) with updates from the Richmond/Delta Branch. As part of this session, a presentation by Engineers and Geoscientist BC's Vice President, Carol Park, and a technical presentation by Dr. Laleh Behjat will take place.

Integrated circuits have seen an explosion in the numbers of the transistors and extreme scaling in their sizes. Today’s ICs can have trillions of transistors at Nano-scale sizes. In this talk, we will discuss how machine learning can be used to solve these problems of scale and if machines are intelligent enough to make themselves. We will also discuss how creativity and innovation in Electronic Design Automation can be used to solve other problems seen in the world.
