SEMI Pacific Northwest Chapter presents:  

The Future of Communication: from Smart & Connected Devices to Artificial Intelligence and Beyond

Thanks in large part to recent advances in semiconductor technology, the world is on the verge of an unprecedented volume of information exchange that promises to reshape our future.  From Smart Cars to Smart cities, to Artificial Intelligence and Beyond, the so-called 4th industrial revolution will provide us with the means to create new methods of communication with unprecedented capability.

Please join us for the SEMI breakfast forum to hear our distinguished guest speakers explore both the technology breakthroughs required to realize this future and the potential changes that it portends.  It is also a great event to network with leaders in the local community.
