Arm-based processors are the intelligence transforming the 21st Century — from supercomputers to smartphones — from cars to coffee makers — and in networks monitoring everything from power grids, to traffic flows, to the erosion levels in shellfish beds and the water levels in farmers’ fields.
Think of the opportunity, then, to “do good” as these processors become even smarter, smaller, and more energy efficient:
As processors become more power-efficient they dramatically reduce energy usage by digital systems throughout the economy. Smarter, smaller processors also conserve energy by intelligently monitoring and tuning the performance of smart cars, smart factories, smart buildings, and smart agriculture.
Smarter processors enable systems to better handle medical records, diagnose and treat patients, communicate between caregivers, enable remote patient monitoring, promote medication adherence, track patients and assets in healthcare settings, and perform a host of other applications — all to lower the cost of care and achieve better patient outcomes.
Innovations like SimPrints, a low-cost, highly accurate, cloud-enabled fingerprint scanner, show how advanced processors can let disadvantaged populations participate in a modern economy for purposes such as to vote, access health records, and bank.
Smarter digitally enabled classrooms, online courses taken at home, smartphone apps that offer on-demand learning — these are just some of the ways advanced processors are making education better for billions of people across the globe. So are new types of learning content, such as gamifcation and virtual reality, now possible due to more powerful, more pervasive, and less expensive processors.
Arm technology makes all this possible.
