Atoms to Algos is the mindset that will allow people to build the next generation of transformative technology. In the AI-era and beyond, what can be achieved will depend on the ability to optimize systems from the level of the atom all the way up to the user experience. This requires an unprecedented level of collaboration across the ecosystem. With that in mind, Applied Materials is organizing the Atoms to Algos speaker series to bring together leading thinkers to partner on disruptive innovations that will change industries.

On June 8, 2023 Applied Materials is pleased to host Atoms to Algos: Driving Chip Innovation across the Value Chain

The value chain for chip design and production is undergoing a transformation with new expectations for value delivery and a greater focus on differentiation. Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing chip design requirements, and companies must keep up with the latest developments to stay ahead of the competition. New use cases are emerging that demand innovative solutions from the chip industry.

We will explore the challenges and opportunities with industry experts and thought leaders and provide insights and strategies for success in this dynamic landscape.

Entrance is free of charge. Registration is required and is now available.

Atoms to Algos is hosted by Think Silicon, an Applied Materials company based in Greece. Think Silicon is a leading provider of ultra-low power GPU IP for embedded systems.
