The Wharton Alumni AI Studio is an initiative of Wharton Alumni and Friends aiming to strengthen the connection between Business Professionals, Domain Experts, and Researchers in Artificial Intelligence. 

Join us for a one-hour session where we will discuss semiconductors industry news. Since the creation of semiconductors in the middle of the 20th century, and its massive industrialization in the 70’s and 80’s, processors became prominent in all the devices we are using in our daily life. 

The very same thing happened recently with Artificial Intelligence: new solutions increasing the capabilities of existing software and opening the door to new possibilities. Those new possibilities left us with new requirements, particularly in the development of self-driving cars or edge computing. Those requirements led us to develop new AI-specialized processors.

The recent events in Taiwan (COVID and the relationship with China) showed us how external events can impact directly the market of processors and its all supply chain. This is leading to the creation of new challengers that are reshaping all industry.

During this one-hour session, we will dig into the landscape of AI-specialised processors, their supply chain, and potential trends and opportunities in the market.
