Track Descriptions

AI & Machine Learning

Learn how Arm and its partners are enabling intelligence for a vast array of industries such as mobile devices, automobiles, shipping, medical, and home surveillance. In these talks, we will explore methods for implementing intelligence at the edge using methodologies around sensors, voice and image recognition, IoT gateways, and neural network frameworks.

Automotive, Industrial & Functional Safety

Nowhere has electronics design revolutionized product development more than in the automotive and industrial sectors. From assisted and autonomous driving to robotics in industrial applications, Arm and its partners will share insight and instruction into some of today’s most interesting engineering challenges, including real-time signal processing, machinery control, embedded vision, and functional safety.

Cloud to Edge Infrastructure

The traditional understanding of infrastructure as a physical building filled with servers, storage, and networking to “run the business” has been redefined. Arm and its partners will empower IT organizations to think and plan differently with an understanding of cloud computing, distributed cloud computing, and edge computing being fed by a 5G access network.

Connected Devices & Cloud Services

From infrastructure to IoT, big data is everywhere. In the Connected Devices & Cloud Services track, sessions will focus on managing data from the smallest distributed devices to the largest server farms. Whether it’s analytics from connected streetlights or high-performance compute for medical applications, developers can learn how to design their systems to distribute data efficiently and securely.

Embedded Software Development

As time-to-market pressures increase, the need to embrace and exploit productive, efficient, and smart software development rises. Learn the latest techniques and technologies in debug, multicore software, Linux/Android operating systems, compilation tools, languages, methodologies, optimization, performance tuning, and exception handling.

Interactive Compute

Innovation and the demand for new experiences are driving mobile technology trends beyond the smartphone. They are creating a demand for always-on, always-connected devices—ranging from phones to laptops to PCs—featuring immersive computing, with powerful artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), and machine learning capabilities. In this track, we’ll demonstrate how high performance combined with leading-edge, energy-efficient processors will lead the way for the next wave of innovation, expanding the mobile experiences into PCs for even more productivity and longer battery life.

System Design Methodology

Modern system design has moved beyond silicon. Demands for secure, low-power and reliable systems are increasing and teams are leveraging new processor and offload schemes to deliver efficient, targeted solutions. Learn how advances in modelling and tools are evolving hardware and software co-design and how EDA and design services are helping define new and exciting markets for established silicon vendors.

Trust & Security

Today’s design ecosystem is rooted in connection at all levels, but these new connections come with significant trust and security considerations. The Trust & Security track details the latest information on provisioning, authentication, encryption, trusted HW/SW, mobile payment, DRM, BYOD, virtualization, and secure boot technologies, among others.
