According to Gartner, by 2023, one-third of companies that have implemented IoT will also have implemented AI in conjunction with at least one IoT project. Data generated from IoT devices will be integrated in various vertical applications and eventually be applied to smart factories, smart healthcare, smart transportation, and smart cities. The first two sessions of COMPUTEX Forum organized by TAITRA, “AIoT Evolution” and “AI Empowerment,” were held on June 2. Top speakers from Micron Technology, Intel, Supermicro, NVIDIA, NXP Semiconductors, Arm, Delta Electronics, and Check Point Software were among the lineup to deep dive into the infinite possibilities of AIoT and AI.
Micron Technology: Driving AI innovation with storage in the new era of data intensive computing
President and CEO of Micron Technology Sanjay Mehrotra pointed out that the world is at the dawn of a new age of data intensive computing. AI and 5G are the two major drivers of this age. With the rapid growth of AI applications, accompanied by numerous challenges, Micron Technology will continue to build a reliable, systematic infrastructure based on memory and storage for a better AI future.
Intel: Embracing infinite computing possibilities with next-gen AI processor
Nash Palaniswamy, Vice President of Intel’s Sales and Marketing Group and General Manager of AI, HPC, Datacenter Accelerators Solutions and Sales, addressed the possibilities of 3rd Gen Intel Xeon Scalable Processor. The latest generation of Xeon is capable of fulfilling AI and high-performance computing needs.
