Computex 2021 a grand event, one of the world’s most important ICT shows, COMPUTEX TAIPEI, continues to build global technology ecosystems amid the pandemic. It will feature the latest tech trends: AI, IoT, 5G, Edge Computing, HPC, Gaming, Innovations &Startups.

Many big names in tech brands like AMD, ARM, Intel and Nvidia are planning to deliver their keynotes right at the beginning of the event. The expo will continue with the position of “BUILDING GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY ECOSYSTEMS”, featuring the latest tech trends: AI, IoT, 5G, Edge Computing, HPC, Cyber Security, Gaming, Innovations &Startups.

This time the event will be spread across the entire month from May 31 to June 30. The annual event was first shifted from June to September last year, before being completely cancelled due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

TAITRA, the body that organises the event every year hoped to make Computex 2021 an in-person event. However, due to cases popping up again in many parts of the world, the event has been forced to an all-virtual format like many other technology conferences this year.

COMPUTEX kicked off this year’s month-long #COMPUTEXVirtual on May 31 with James Huang, TAITRA Chairman, highlighting the not-to-be-missed events. Michelle Johnston Holthaus, Intel Executive Vice President, Chief Revenue Officer, discussed accelerating digital transformation and how to release a new era of innovation when the world is most looking forward to innovation. On the same day, Arm CEO Simon Segars discussed the role of technology in the post-pandemic. Using examples from Arm’s ecosystem partners, Segars demonstrated how technology could be a remarkable force for good that will be critical to the world’s recovery and create a more sustainable and secure future. Breaking away from traditions, COMPUTEX 2021 Virtual is an all-virtual exhibition, using AI platforms and leading the way to create a prosperous technology ecosystem.

“COMPUTEX was born in the 1980s when the technology industry took off. At that time, together with entrepreneurs from around the world, Taiwan pursued disruptive innovation and created an industry supply chain that paved the way for the Internet and digital economy that we have today. It has been one year into the pandemic, and we continue to push forward with innovation and navigate in the new normal. As Taiwan stands at the center of the global technology ecosystem, we will never cease to build, connect, integrate, innovate, and push forward with the latest technologies. Today, I am honored to announce the opening of #COMPUTEXVirtual. No matter where we are, let COMPUTEX connect us for a better future,” said James Huang, TAITRA Chairman.
