36th Annual AAMA SEMICONDUCTOR DINNER

36th Annual AAMA SEMICONDUCTOR DINNER

Semiconductors in The World of AI

Innovation in the semiconductor industry is at a fever pitch. An addition to the Internet of Things creating new hardware ecosystems, artificial intelligence has emerged as an overlay technology to connect disparate systems into a learning system that delivers fresh insights, from playing your favorite playlist to driving your car to finding you in a crowded room. AI manifests itself in the cloud to process massive amounts of data and on the edge of the network to assess voice, video and sensor data at its source. In AI, semiconductors play a crucial role as a new class of ICs are being created to handle increasingly complex workloads. Join us for a special evening of great networking, meaningful conversation and excellent food as we welcome industry luminary Lip-Bu Tan, Chairman of Walden and CEO of Cadence Design Systems, to share his perspectives on the state of the industry and what’s in store for 2018 and beyond.
