The Neoverse N1 CPU is optimized for a wide range of cloud native server workloads executing at a world-class compute efficiency. This enables an infrastructure transformation where processing is pushed to the edge where data is generated, thereby providing more scalability than moving all data to centralized datacenters.
The Arm Neoverse E1 CPU delivers best-in-class throughput efficiency. It incorporates a new simultaneous multithreading (SMT) microarchitecture design. With SMT, the processor can execute two threads concurrently resulting in better aggregate throughput performance.
The Neoverse E1 delivers 2.1x more compute performance, 2.7x more throughput performance and 2.4x better throughput efficiency compared to the Cortex-A53. The design is highly scalable to support throughput demands for next generation edge to core data transport.
Todd Kjos of the Android Kernel team at Google, and Bero of the Linaro Mobile Group, talk at Linaro Connect Vancouver, they talk about running Android on the mainline kernel, trying to get closer to mainline, enabling test boards and devices to run mainline Linux. Getting some of the Android specific things that were kept out of the tree into the Linux tree.

Jem Davies, ARM VP, Fellow and GM, Machine Learning Group talks about ARM's new Helium Machine Learning architecture for the ARM Cortex-M based microcontrollers, as a follow on to ARM CMSIS-NN Neural Network Kernels which Boosted Efficiency in Microcontrollers by 5x last year, now ARM launches Helium ARMv8.1-M to improve machine learning performance, with up to 50x on machine learning workloads, about 5x improvement in performance for regular DSP based workloads, as open source software and the new ARMv8.1-M architecture to be integrated in Microcontroller designs to come in the future.
Golden-i is preparing to revolutionize the world of adjustable/customizable life enhancing smart glasses, at its 8th Generation (I have filmed Golden-i prototype developments since 2011 here and here), the Golden-i team has reached this yet smallest Smart Glass implementation that works with USB Type-C Displayport phones (for now on slightly modified firmwares) to output the full potential of the Smart Phone right into the hands free Smart Glass computing user interface.
