In a rare interview following the recent announcement of its acquisition by NVIDIA, Arm CEO, Simon Segars, sits down with Young Sohn, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Samsung Electronics, for a fascinating deep dive into the future of computing, communications, and global commerce –including 5G, artificial intelligence, autonomous vehicles, and hyper-secure networks.
No company in the world has had a greater influence on the age of mobile computing than Arm. Over 180 billion semiconductor chipsbuilt on their efficient, low power designs provide the key architecture for the essential devices of modern life -from smartphones to personal computers, to data centers. Moreover, Arm-based chips promise to be the backbone of the coming Internet of Things age –a world where everyday objects such as lightbulbs, refrigerators, even sneakers are connected to the internet.
And Arm is about to get a lot more influential. The recent announcement of a colossal $40 billion acquisition deal by tech-giant NVIDIAmeans that, unless you live off the grid, Arm-based chips will be a permanent part of your daily life.
