More than 2.5 billion Arm-based consumer devices with AI capabilities are already in use today. Now an entire technology ecosystem is pushing to bring AI to everyone, despite the common challenges in powering the future of consumer devices. Hear from Arm partners on what matters when it comes to computing.
What’s your favorite thing about Arm
“Its ubiquity and scalability.”
- Adam King, VP and GM, Client Computing, Mediatek
What do you see as a breakthrough technology in the next decade?
- Lauren Thorpe, Product Manager, TV Platforms, Netflix
Each year, there are more than 20 billion Arm IoT SoCs shipped capable of running machine learning (ML). Advances in AI deployments mean that even the smallest, cost-sensitive devices can be made smarter and more capable. Together with the software developer ecosystem, we are collaborating on the IoT trends and standards that come next.
What will be the single biggest challenge in computing over the next decade?
“Power consumption and cost effectiveness are the most challenging things. And the ecosystem tool chain is another factor that will definitely impact the importance of technology.”
- Mark Chen, VP, Himax
When you think about the next 10 years, which one computing trend will fuel your company’s growth the most?
“Hardware/software codesign. So far, hardware companies are focusing on the hardware. And software focus on the software only. But these days the hardware and the software should be considered together.”
- Myungsu Chae, CEO, Nota AI
Digital infrastructure is undergoing a once-in-a-generation transformation. Secure, fast, and data-rich communications will link people, businesses, and things to unlock new opportunities and help solve the world's most pressing challenges. Hear from Arm partners what the future of the digital infrastructure looks like.
Where do you see most of AI taken place - on the edge or in the cloud?
"Today it’s still happening in the cloud. But it’s changing and as devices get more intelligent, it will move to the edge. And that’s the thing which everyone is building around. It’s how you can move this AI to the edge."
Is Moore’s Law really coming to an end?
“No, I think there are many ways how to get it moving forward. One is having a mix of many technologies, multichip packaging, chiplets, and that kind of technology.”
- Veijo Kontas, Head of SoC Development, Nokia
Automation, electrification, and in-vehicle user experiences are driving requirements for higher computing power across the automotive industry. Listen in as our automotive partners work out what’s next in computing.
What will experience the biggest evolution over the next decade for you? Software or hardware?
“Software! Well both are important, hardware and software. But software is defining the business models of the future. Software gives us the flexibility. We see the software-defined vehicles, software-defined datacenters, software-defined everything. And I think this has the broader scope in defining the next iterations of technology and driving the rest.”
- Maria Anhalt, CEO, Elektrobit
What’s your personal favorite Arm based device?
“They are everywhere. I couldn’t decide. Maybe finally the mobile phone is the most important one because you use it for everything.”
- Peter Fiedler, Head of Semiconductors, VW

Describe the future of computing in one word.
“Ubiquitous. It’s going to be everywhere. That’s the most important thing about computing today.”
- Srivatsan Ramachandran, VP & GM, Global Strategic Business, AMI
What’s your favorite thing about Arm technology?
“I would say three things: Efficiency. Scalability. There is no other architecture that can offer the scalability that Arm is offering today. Going from very low-power solutions all the way to hundreds-of-watts solutions. And then ecosystem.”
- Dr. Mourad Aberbour, CTO, Silicon, Capgemini Engineering
