COMPUTEX 2022 is one of the world’s three major information and communication shows. In addition to demonstrating Taiwan’s tech and economic strength, it also brings together international exhibitors, buyers, and startups, creating a global technology ecosystem.

OPENING CEREMONY

Among the distinguished guests in attendance at the opening ceremony to witness the rapid development of new digital technology were President Tsai Ing-Wen, Minister of Economic Affairs Wang Mei-Hua, Chairman of Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA) James Huang, and Chairman of Taipei Computer Association Paul Peng.

President Tsai Ing-wen stated, ” COMPUTEX is an important platform for the global technology industry, which not only enables Taiwanese companies to strengthen their international collaboration and connect to the global market, but also shows the capabilities of Taiwan’s ICT industry to the world. In the future, the development of advanced technologies such as AI, quantum computers, and cloud computing will be highly dependent on chips. Therefore, Taiwan will leverage its strengths in high-end hardware manufacturing and empowering ICT innovations in various industries to make the overall economy more competitive. Also, we will actively work together with enterprises to accelerate the digital transformation process and to build the next golden decade of Taiwan’s technology industry. “

“Over the past twenty years, technology, our shared global language, has empowered the world and resulted in important milestones. Even when facing urgent challenges such as the pandemic and supply chain disruptions, technology has allowed infinite possibilities,” said TAITRA Chairman James Huang. “COMPUTEX’s mission has always been to introduce technologies to the world and help make a difference, and this year’s event offers an upgraded, hybrid exhibition experience. We look forward to stimulating technological innovation and heading into the future with global technology companies.”

The leading global ICT companies showcase their innovative technologies and solutions at COMPUTEX. GIGABYTE showcased high-performance computing applications, including AI, 5G, edge computing, intelligent traffic management, security, and gaming and entertainment. Delta Electronics chose to focus on sustainability and presented energy and thermal management solutions for applications such as industrial automation, data center infrastructure, and EV charging. KIOXIA displayed its XG8 series of client SSDs for high-end notebooks, desktops, and workstations. Furthermore, Garage+ Pavilion selected 48 startups to showcase innovative capabilities in numerous fields, including AI, IoT, health care, and green technology.

COMPUTEX 2022 Provides an Overview of the Global Technology Ecosystems

COMPUTEX 2022 features six main themes: Accelerating Intelligence, Connected X-Experience, Digital Resilience, Innovative Computing, Innovations & Startups, and Sustainability. In addition, a virtual exhibition, COMPUTEX DigitalGO, is held from today to June 6. By making use of diverse channels, COMPUTEX 2022 has created an interactive platform for global engagement and provided a comprehensive overview of the future developments in the global technology ecosystems.

In addition to the comprehensive exhibition, COMPUTEX also offers keynote speeches and forums. This year’s CEO Keynotes, Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD), NXP Semiconductors (NXP), Micron Technology, and Supermicro will share their corporate visions from a technology perspective.

Metaverse Development and Semiconductor Innovation Accelerated by the Pandemic; Embracing Digital Transformation Is the Key to Strengthening Business Resilience

Facing the challenges brought by the pandemic, Barry Lam, Founder and Chairman of Quanta Computer, believed that the demand for mobile computing and cloud computing has increased exponentially over the past two years. In the future, the market will require more innovative technologies to create new application scenarios coupled with a more flexible global supply chain. Moreover, the time to market will be the key to success.

On the other hand, CK Tseng, President of Arm Taiwan, suggested, “the pandemic has highlighted the importance of semiconductors in the tech industry, driving more companies to accelerate their technical innovations via advanced semiconductor technology. We are working with our partners to redefine the future of computing, delivering technology that will address the demands of AI, autonomous systems, cloud computing, the Metaverse and much more.”

In the ever-changing political and economic context, building digital resilience is the key to steady growth under the new normal. Dr. Tzi-cker Chiueh, Director of Delta Research Center, gives the example of his corporation. He stated that enterprises would proactively devise comprehensive alternatives to their end-to-end business flows and periodically and rigorously rehearse them to ensure they can go through ominous events that disrupt the global economy. In addition, more and more IoT technologies have been adopted to strengthen the resilience of smart manufacturing production lines and the operations of smart green buildings.

As 5G and AIoT technology become more prevalent, and businesses accelerate the pace in which they digitally transform, Ken Sun, General Manager of Microsoft Taiwan, believes raising tech intensity, embracing cloud and harnessing the power of data will be key in building business and organizations’ digital resilience. Sun said that the cloud not only brings tremendous opportunity to accelerate innovation, and create new business models, but most importantly, it allows industries to thrive and grow in the post-pandemic world.

COMPUTEX has grown, transformed with the industry, and established its reputation as the world’s leading platform. The expo will continue with the position of “BUILDING GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY ECOSYSTEMS”, featuring the latest tech trends: Innovative Computing, Accelerating Intelligence, Digital Resilience, Connected X-Experience, Innovations and Startups, and Sustainability.
