Digital signal processing is an indispensible technology with widespread impact in many areas of application; however, it has take 60 years or more to get to where we are today.    Thus, it may be interesting and worthwhile to take a look at how the DSP technology domain originated and evolved.  In this talk, I will look back at some of what I consider to be the most important milestones, examine some of the key interactions with other technologies, consider the importance of unfettered application-centric research, and comment on the importance of education in the evolution of DSP.  The goal of this analysis is to provide a platform from which to admire and celebrate the past progress and make guesses about what the future might hold for the field of digital signal processing.

This talk will also be given at a plenary session of the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing in Dallas, TX on March 16, 2010.
