Machines with human-like abilities, sensors capable of smelling disease and systems that can help manage cities are all part of a rapidly-innovating Internet of Things. As the technology sector creates more intuitive and capable hardware and software, a paradigm shift looms for our world and ARM's industry.
ARM CEO Simon Segars discusses how this new system of interconnected technologies is creating new value for society and business, and how the ARM ecosystem can keep driving the pace of entrepreneurial creativity to enhance the human experience.
Davies describes the opportunities that lie ahead for ARM in areas like virtual and augmented reality, facial recognition for all of ARM's ecosystem in this space (Silicon Partners, OEMs, developers and service providers) and he describes ARM's new products in this space.
Interview with Milosch Meriac, ARM IoT Security Engineer and Dr. Rolf Lindemann, Nok Nok Labs Senior Director for Products, about how ARM and its partners such as Nok Nok Labs are providing secuity solutions for the Internet of Things market, after the DDOS attack running on IP Cameras and their DVRs of last week that shut down a large part of the US internet. They suggest to implement Password-less Authentication, secure and automatic firmware updates, virtualization and more.
Greg Yeric is Director of Future Silicon Technology for ARM Research, analyzing the future technology trends, predicting effects on future ARM products, coordinating internal and external research, including Design-Technology Co-Optimization with industrial and academic partners, as well as technology incubation and enablement. You can watch his keynote at ARM Techcon 2016 here.
Masayoshi Son is the CEO and Chairman of the Board, SoftBank Group Corp., his first public appearance with ARM since this historic acquisition.

Over the last few years, the ARM ecosystem has been pioneering its way into the healthcare market. This is an extremely diverse segment, overlapping with Internet of Things, sensors, analog and communications, with the ever-present need for trust and security very much at the fore.
From a uniquely personal perspective, Mike Muller shares some of the critical technology he sees as being key to unlocking the opportunity in this space. He shares some of his frustrations and make predictions as to what we can look forward to in this space.
The doubling of transistor density every 18 months has been an exponential greater than any experienced in the human endeavor. But, as we know, the pace is slowing, creating uncertainty for the industry but also opportunity. Yeric will explore innovation from the transistor to the system level, and he sees the opportunity to not only continue effective transistor scaling, but to create exciting new products along the way.
Architect on the first ARM Processor at Acorn Computers in Cambridge in the early 1980s, Steve Furber together with Sophie Wilson (3-parts interview: part1, part2, part3), were leading the advanced R&D team at Acorn Computers. Together they invented and designed the World's first ARM Processor, a design that later influenced the designs used for tens of Billions of ARM processors shipped around the world. Now the ARM licencees are shipping ARM Processors at a rate of about 15 Billion processors per year. Today, Steve Furber is a professor of computer engineering at the Manchester University, leading the SpiNNaker project, a massively-parallel computer architecture trying to simulate large-scale neural networks in real-time, as a research tool for neuroscientists, computer scientists and roboticists, trying to understand the human brain's functionality.
Official video released at https://www.acceleratingtech.com/ a site to explain the SoftBank acquisition of ARM, they claim:
- SoftBank’s £17 offer price gives ARM shareholders a 43% premium on Friday’s closing share price and a 41.1% premium on the all-time high share price
- Assurance to double ARM’s UK headcount in the next five years and increase headcount outside the UK
- Leaves ARM’s successful partnership business model, culture and brand unchanged
- Great endorsement of UK tech
Here's the official Japanese Press Conference (with English real-time voice-over translation) with SoftBank CEO and Founder Masayoshi Son announcing the acquisition of ARM by SoftBank.
