Mr Simon Segars, CEO of ARM, kicked off Computex Virtual 2021 with his opening keynote titled ‘Sparking the World’s Post-Pandemic Recovery.’ Using several examples from the Arm partners ecosystem, Mr Segars demonstrated how technology can be a remarkable force for good that will be critical to the world’s recovery and create a more sustainable and secure future.
Mr Segars analyzed how AI will accelerate tackling complex challenges surrounding climate change, security, and equitable access to technologies and connectivity, acting thus as a remarkable force for good.
At this keynote, Mr Segars shared Arm’s answer to the current technological drive in supplying ubiquitous and mobile field in the context of security and AI field before delving into the company’s role in tackling global issues amidst the pandemic through recovery efforts brought through Arm.
Long-term investments in R&D are the key to shaping that future. Similar to the development of the mRNA vaccines, which were the result of decades of foundational research, the investments that partners are making today help prepare them to address new opportunities that have yet to be discovered. Arm itself has invested significant resources on its next generation architecture. Armv9 will enable partners to solve hard problems in the next decade of compute related to security, compute efficiency, and AI-enabled services, while also fighting climate change at the same time.
Arm technology is at the heart of computing and data revolution that is transforming the way people live and businesses operate. The energy-efficient processor designs and software platforms have enabled advanced computing in more than 180 billion chips and our technologies securely power products from the sensor to the smartphone and the supercomputer. Together with 1000+ technology partners the company is at the forefront of designing, securing and managing all areas of AI-enhanced connected compute from the chip to the cloud.
Arm’s partners are taking a leadership position in the world’s recovery by using compute to create smarter and more energy-efficient devices and infrastructure. Taiwan is a leader in this space; local examples of Arm technology demonstrated by Mr Segars include: MediaTek’s use of Arm Total Compute Solutions to unlock new capabilities in mobile, AAEON’s use of IoT devices in Taipei to create smart infrastructure, Johnson Controls International’s use of Arm to reduce power usage and decrease carbon emissions in the Taipei World Trade Center, and RelaJet’s use of AI technology to deliver a smarter energy-efficient hearing aid.
Mr Segars concluded that Arm’s purpose is to spark the world’s potential, creating a future designed by millions of minds, rooted in building a more secure and sustainable world for generations to come. The work that everyone is doing today is going to play a critical role in building the world of tomorrow, and everyone at Arm is looking forward to building that world together.
