This presentation was higher level than expected (or needed). National Instruments has a great knowledge base in it's Labview vision support. Particulars of using configurable FPGA applications, Image Processing Algorithms, and Application Experience would fit well with N.I.
Would have preferred XILINX to present FPGA details, with N. I, on the above topics that might use FPGA's but are application oriented and focused on vision related designs and implementations.
(side note) Labview support is usually very good ...

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
