The IEEE Standard for Floating-Point Arithmetic (IEEE 754) is a technical standard for floating-point arithmetic established in 1985 by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The standard addressed many problems found in the diverse floating-point implementations that made them difficult to use reliably and portable. RISC-V also uses the IEEE 754 standard.

About this event

This session will cover the fundamentals of what are floating point numbers? Why do we need to rely on the standard? How do modern architectures handle floating points? What are the applications of floating point numbers?
