The Semiconductor Industry – From a grain of sand technology emerges

Virtual Event Virtual Event

March 20 @ 6:00 PM 7:30 PM GMT

The world is now going through the Fourth Industrial Revolution which is transforming our lives by digitising all sectors from education to health, transport, banking and others. We have recently witnessed a strong trend towards automation manifesting itself in robotics, AI, machine learning, super-fast mobile networks and self-driving cars to name a few. The underlying technology that facilitates all this, is advanced micro electronics and programming. It is this fusion of both sectors in one industry that is somewhat still a mystery for the vast majority of people. The focus of this webinar is on the semiconductor industry, how it has evolved over the last few decades, where it is now and how big the future opportunities are.

This technology starts from a grain of sand and finishes in the transistor!

صناعة أشباه الموصلات – من حبة رمل تولد التكنولوجيا المتقدمــة

يمر العالم الآن بالثورة الصناعية الرابعة التي تحول حياتنا جميعاً من خلال رقمنة العديد من القطاعات كالتعليم والصحة والنقل والبنوك والأتصالات وغيرها. لقد شهدنا مؤخرًا اتجاهًا قويًا إلى التشغيل الآلي (الأتمتة) الذي يتجلى في الروبوتات والذكاء الاصطناعي والتعلم الآلي وشبكات الأتصالات فائقة السرعة والسيارات ذاتية القيادة على سبيل المثال لا الحصر. التكنولوجيا الأساسية التي تسهل كل هذا التطور تكمن في صناعة الالكترونيات الصغيرة المتقدمة والبرامجيات واندماج كلا القطاعين في صناعة تعتبر لحد ما لغزا للغالبية العظمى من الناس. ينصب تركيز هذه الندوة على صناعة أشباه الموصلات، وكيف تطورت على مدى العقود القليلة الماضية، وأين هي الآن، ومدى ضخامة الفرص المتاحة في المستقبل

هذه التكنولوجيا تبدأ من حبة رمل لكي تتحول الى ترانزستور!
