Abstract: 

Abstract:
The USB4 standard was announced in March with little public information (and lots of speculation). The standard is expected to be released publicly in the middle of the year. This talk will give an overview of USB4 and some thoughts on its use in Chromebooks. (If the spec has not yet become public then some of the details may need to be left vague!)
