About this event

Steve Furber CBE FRS FREng is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Manchester, UK. After completing a BA in mathematics and a PhD in aerodynamics at the University of Cambridge, UK, he spent the 1980s at Acorn Computers, where he was a principal designer of the BBC Microcomputer and the ARM 32-bit RISC microprocessor. Over 250 billion ARM-powered chips have since been manufactured, powering much of the world's mobile and embedded computing. He moved to the ICL Chair of Computer Engineering at Manchester in 1990 where he led research into asynchronous and low-power systems and, more recently, neural systems engineering, where the SpiNNaker project delivered a computer incorporating a million ARM processors optimised for brain modelling applications.
