ated costs and time of travel — will serve as an added bonus for all par- ticipants.” According to the World Economic

Forum, the value of digital transfor- mations worldwide in the new indus- trial revolution is estimated at $100 trillion in the next 10 years alone. Among the many stunning outgrowths of this disruption, artificial intelli- gence (AI) is widely expected to have the largest societal impact across industries that include automotive, medical, finance, agriculture, and energy. Autonomous mobility, ubiqui- tous connectivity, novel materials and advanced manufacturing technologies will also be key drivers of innovation. The conference’s keynote speak-

ers will explore how these advances will combine to shape the next indus- trial revolution and the new world in

which we live and work. Environ - mental advocate and former U.S. Vice President Al Gore will update attendees on the global challenges our industry can help to solve, by driving advances in the latest cut- ting-edge technologies, especially by increasing the energy efficiency of semiconductors and computing. Gary Dickerson, president and

CEO of Applied Materials, will high- light the need for sustainable AI. He will also discuss actions that can be taken by companies throughout the semiconductor and computing value chain, both individually and collec- tively, to enable a better future. Futurist and author Steve

Brown, formerly futurist and chief evangelist at Intel, will identify six strategic technologies that are expected to shape every business in

the 2020s. He will also present the semiconductor manufacturing indus- try with a roadmap for emerging stronger from the disruptions caused by COVID-19. Additional keynote speakers

include Nicholas Burns, ambassador from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, Lea Gabrielle, special envoy of the Global Engagement Center for the U.S. State Department, Dr. John E. Kelly III, senior vice pres- ident and director of IBM Research, Paul Saffo, a forecaster for large-scale and long-term technology change, and Tetsuro “Terry” Higashi, former chairman and CEO of Tokyo Electron.
