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.
COMPUTEX 2021 Opening Keynote by Intel is led by Executive Vice President and Chief Revenue Officer Michelle Johnston Holthaus with the theme of “Innovation Unleashed”. Intel talks about sustainability awareness of enterprises under the raging global pandemic and how we continue to work with global partners to promote digital transformation; Intel not only response to the global market demand quickly and flexibly with the IDM 2.0 business model, but it also continues to promote innovation with 5G and its Open Architecture. We will also unveil new products leading in performance and enrich people’s user experience.
Arm CEO Simon Segars’ keynote titled “Sparking the World’s Post-Pandemic Recovery” 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. The combination of computing in the age of AI will accelerate how we tackle complex challenges surrounding climate change, security, and equitable access to technologies and connectivity. Segars indicated that long-term investments in research and development are the key to shaping that future. Arm has invested significant resources in 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, all while fighting climate change at the same time.
