The Future of Microprocessors
Sophie Wilson CBE
Monday 19th April 2021, 7:45pm

Exactly 11 years since her previous visit to a packed ROUGOL, we are delighted to virtually welcome back Sophie Wilson to talk to us about the development of microprocessors, past, present, and future.

Sophie needs little introduction to Acorn/RISC OS users, having been co-designer of the BBC Micro, designer of the ARM instruction set, and author of BBC BASIC (6502 and ARM versions). She is also a Broadcom Fellow and Distinguished Engineer, a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, a Fellow of the British Computer Society, and has an honorary doctorate of science from Cambridge University and a CBE.

After the talk there will be a Q&A session, providing an amazing opportunity to have those questions that have always puzzled you answered by one of the most influential people on modern computing.

This meeting was held online via Zoom. There is a report on The Icon Bar.
