There Is Lots More to Come
Chief Technology Officer, ARM
This year, a private company landed a recycled rocket from space, vertically, on a floating sea platform with pinpoint accuracy. Industry pioneers like Mike Muller are thrilled by these breakthroughs. Join him as he discusses the amazing engineering feats that have captivated him over the past year and the advancements that will open new realms of possibility. He will explore how we must improve and cement technology trust and how engineers are making processes faster, more efficient, and more secure through advances in areas such as AI.

Why Is IoT So Hard?
Journalist, SKT Labs
Stacey will share ideas on how to tackle some of the key challenges the industry faces in a host of areas, and how solving them can unleash the power of a trillion smart, connected devices. What problems need addressing most urgently? What technology must be created and available for all? What will business models look like? How will technology transformation change us? Find out her take during this illuminating presentation.
Wednesday, October 25, 9:30 a.m. – 9:55 a.m.
Chief Executive Officer, ARM
As we humanize technology — making it more intuitive to our needs — we must think about the ripple effect on society. If robots resemble us, can they replace us? Which technologies should we prioritize, and how do we ensure we enhance the world and human capability and not just change them? How do we ensure we innovate responsibly as we speed into the future? We need answers and we need to spark new debates. Simon will discuss how the decisions we make today will be so critical in governing what tomorrow looks like.
Wednesday, October 25, 9:55 a.m. – 10:20 a.m.
Capturing Business Value in the Hyper-Connected World
President IoT Services Group, ARM
The Internet of Things aims to create a world where billions of devices and trillions of connections will enable companies to better manage their businesses and offer new services to their customers. This is a world that must be built on securely connected and managed devices that are based on a robust service delivery platform. The Internet of Things represents a huge opportunity for the technology sector with new innovations capable of transforming experiences for businesses and consumers alike. Dipesh Patel will talk about how ARM is already helping companies with their IoT journey and share ARM’s plans for value-creating capabilities for multiple markets.
Wednesday, October 25, 1:30 p.m. – 2:20 p.m.
How to Hack a Human
Cybersecurity Consultant, Founder cyber.uk
Dr. Jessica Barker co-founded the cybersecurity consultancy Redacted Firm and runs the cybersecurity news and resources website cyber.uk. In this presentation, she will explore the world of hacking and analyze why humans are particularly susceptible to social engineering. Why is it so easy to persuade people to give away sensitive information? Are we naïve or just too nice? Jessica will describe how we need to understand how human nature works, why we are potentially more hackable than any machine, and how to engineer better system security that fits with the way we behave in the real world.
Thursday, October 26, 9:30 a.m. – 9:55 a.m.
Process Technology Limbo
Last year, we gave Greg Yeric 15 minutes to talk about the latest thinking on state-of-the-art silicon process technologies. The result was a thrilling rollercoaster ride covering the difficult, the really hard, and the near impossible. In response to popular demand, we’ve given Greg more time this year to update us on the most exciting developments and future ideas for silicon manufacturing wizardry that will keep driving our industry forward.
Thursday, October 26, 9:55 a.m. – 10:20 a.m.
How to Build and Connect a Trillion Things
