Lucky to deliver NAB Technology Luncheon keynote address

Robert Lucky, internationally recognized expert, author, and commentator on the state and future of data communications technology, will deliver the keynote address, “Is Bandwidth Infinite?” at the NAB Technology Luncheon April 20.

Lucky, a renowned scientist, is perhaps best-known to most engineers for his regularly appearing Reflections column in IEEE Spectrum Magazine. Over the past 20 years, he has offered his philosophical and humorous observations on engineering, life and technology.

Early in his 40-year career, Lucky invented the adaptive equalizer, the key component of all high-speed communications systems used today. He has led the development of breakthrough communications technologies at research laboratories such as Bell Labs and Telcordia Technologies (formerly Bellcore), where he served as corporate vice president of applied research until his retirement in 2002.

Lucky received his doctorate in electrical engineering from Purdue University in 1961 and has since been honored with four honorary doctorates. He has received a number of major awards, including the Marconi Prize and the IEEE Edison Medal.
