 10:25–11:30ISS CxO Panel 2016   

It's 2050… Moore's Law is Dead… What's the New Business Model

The CxO panel closes the conference with a conversation between Dan Hutcheson and several esteemed executives at a CxO level. This year, we are asking our panelists to think ahead … Way ahead … to 2050. It’s been fifty year’s since Moore’s Law was discovered.So, it’s a safe assumption that by 2050, Moore’s Law as we know it … will be dead. Yet we also know that the semiconductor industry will still be thriving, as innovation will never die, as that is what we do. This year’s panelists have been chosen for their track record as visionaries to share their views of how they see our industry evolving as it transitions away from Moore’s Law. Here are some of the questions that they have been asked to address: How do we get from here to there? What direction will innovation take beyond scaling? Will the weight shift from process to design or will both become more critically interdependent? Will the business model still be grounded in lowering cost-per-transistor or will it shift to raising value-per-chip and what does that mean in their mind?
