    Market Overview
    Evangelos Simoudis, Managing Director at Synapse Partners

    Big data and AI play a central role in next-generation mobility and our driverless future. Big data coming from inside and outside autonomous, connected and electrified vehicles and AI technologies employed for the exploitation of such data can provide an asymmetric, long-term, and value-creating advantage to the creators of next-generation mobility. To survive and ultimately thrive in a future where new mobility models become the norm, large corporations and startups alike must invest heavily and over a long period in such technologies and combine technology innovations with the right business model innovations.

    Driving the “Mega Data” Age of Electronics
    Jim Elliott, Corporate Senior Vice President of Memory Sales & Marketing at Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.

    We are moving at extreme velocity into a new wave of computing, as we lay the groundwork for a massive expansion of artificial intelligence across the globe. This intelligence—fueled by data intensive computing— is at the very core of a tomorrow’s transportation needs. Exponentially increasing amounts of data combined with a need for alarmingly simple, ultra-fast communications, is taking us from CPU-driven computing to a world where “data centric” ecosystems are in the driver’s seat.

    For automotive, “mega data” on-the-road communications will be driven by intense real-time computational requirements, lightning fast data storage, deep learning algorithms, next-generation simulators, HD GPS mapping, seemingly unlimited amounts of driving data, and numerous redundancy measures.

    Samsung Device Solutions, the world’s largest producer of digital components, will examine how much the automotive digital landscape is changing, and the digital roadmaps we need to get there. We will look at what’s needed in the way of ultra-fast components, smart platforms, stretchable UHD displays, next gen LED packages and high capacity storage devices, for the new era of smart cars and autonomous vehicles that’s right around the corner.
