Judd Heape is Senior Director, Marketing in IVG (Imaging & Vision Group) at ARM talks about Apical that was acquired by ARM in May 2016, enabling Computer Vision in a new area on the SoC, already shipped with over 500 million ARM Processors, here demonstrating HDR-10 video through Assertive Display. HDR10 HEVC video stream decoded by Mali-V550 video processor to AFBC-compressed 10-bit YUV, Displayed at Full HD through Mali-DP650 display processor. With Assertie Display technology for excellent image clarity under all viewing conditions, such as under bright sunlight.
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.
For the full version of this keynote video including the 9-minute introduction by ARM CEO Simon Segars see:
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.
Aikun has patented the Morphus X300 design, and is happy to see Nintendo join them in the same direction for the future of gaming. Aikun encourages Nintendo to reach out and to officially release all the back-catalog of Nintendo games from Gamecube, N64, SNES, NES officially into the Google Play, into an officially Nintendo-supported 3D-display enabled, controller optimized Nintendo games emulator for Android. For example, Nintendo could offer a $5/month or $10/month fee for unlimited gaming on Android/Switch, that could be perfect, and it could be very lucrative for Nintendo, to make all their games compatible with the 3 Billion Android devices that are shipped every year. We definitely expect that Nintendo Switch is also Android based and offers an LTE Sim card slot version, also possibly leading the way for a Nintendo Phone, Nintendo HDMI Stick TV Dongle and more. Android Smart TVs could have the Nintendo Switch Android app pre-loaded (with a 3-months free trial). Nintendo should also program and release all their Nintendo Switch games to be compatible with all modern Android devices, not to only run on Nintendo's own hardware. Game developers only need to program their games once for Android, and that should make the games also available on all other Android devices shipped in the world. At the same time also Nintendo can release high quality well designed side game controller Bluetooth accessories to be used using with any sized smartphone and with any tablet, to add high quality game controls on each side of any Android or iOS device. Right now, Aikun encourages all gaming fans to consider buying the Aikun Morphus X300 which is immediately available on https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B017CWO2CK and on http://aikun.co/index.php?ac=article&at=list&tid=114 (with Amazon.com ($249), Amazon.de (249€), Amazon.fr (249€) and Amazon.jp (28999¥) links and stock to be available by November)
