Thought Leadership

GSA Leadership Summit: New Paradigms – New Opportunities

By Dennis Brophy

Join us for the virtual GSA 2021 Silicon Leadership Summit!  Siemens EDA Senior Vice-President, Ravi Subramanian, will speak on Thursday, April 15th, in Session D2-2 from 10:25am – 11:40am PDT on Intelligent and Secure Edge

The GSA 2021 Silicon Leadership Summit is a virtual online summit that brings together senior executives and visionaries to provide thought leadership and insights on evolving technology and market trends.  With more than 250 senior executives across the expanded semiconductor ecosystem coming together to hold insightful dialog, you have an opportunity to hear the latest from disruptive innovators. 

The virtual summit will be split across two mornings (Pacific Time) on April 14 & 15 2021 rather than its daylong in-person tradition. In-person events may have to wait a bit longer for all of us, but innovation continues at an unrelenting pace. The shift to massive parallel processing driven by ubiquitous edge intelligence, demands of hyperscale data computing, high bandwidth connectivity, and high-speed communication presents opportunities in the face of paradigm shifts. We see this today as Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Internet-of-Things, decentralized edge-cloud compute, 5G connectivity are creating new end-market possibilities all the while demanding rapid and unprecedented semiconductor ecosystem advances.

“The answers you get depend on the questions you ask.”

Thomas Kuhn

This quote from the late Thomas Kuhn, credited for bringing “paradigm-shift” into our modern lexicon, is perhaps more prescient for the 2021 GSA Silicon Leadership Summit that is sharply focused on New Paradigms – New Opportunities. Following the presentation session on Intelligent and Secure Edge, a 30-minute panel discussion will follow to dive deeper into new and emerging paradigms. Questions posed to the presenters often lead to insightful answers. It may be your question that drives this insight! Register and join us.
