The renaissance of silicon

Micron Technology


What’s the “next big thing” in technology? The answer depends on whom you ask.

Four tech company CEO’s were asked what they’re most excited about on technologies near horizon. Not surprising, perhaps, is that each gave a different response. But as they discussed their next-generation passions, a common denominator emerged: memory and storage.

Fast memory and high-capacity storage will be critical in tomorrow’s world—one in which autonomy rules the road (and the skies), factories that can run themselves, full-length movies download in the twinkle of an eye, and scenarios we haven’t even imagined enrich our lives in untold ways. At the heart of it all lies the humble silicon chip, the unseen workhorse making it all possible. However, the bright futures and endless technological possibilities they all see depend on silicon chips.

Join panelists Sanjay Mehrotra of Micron, Dr. Lisa Su of Advanced Micro Devices, Lip-Bu Tan of Cadence Design Systems, and Steve Mollenkopf of Qualcomm in a wide-ranging discussion of all things digital and their future, including:

  • How 5G will transform the way we use our phones—and when it will arrive
  • Why “one-size-fits-all” computing is so last year
  • What AI means for the future of work in tech
  • The prognosis for autonomous vehicles on the road and in our skies
  • The “next big thing” coming from Silicon Valley, including the one item everyone asks for

The one thing they all agree on, the silicon renaissance has begun.
