Speaker: Dr. Peter Hsieh(謝弘輝), Vice President of Innovation and Investment, Arm
Hosted by: Prof. Chia-Lin Yang


Key observation on Moore’s Law is ending. Software development is based on CPU. However, control flow (Von Neumann) architecture is not efficient for AI workloads.
IoT applications generate Big Data at the edge. Big Data needs to be analyzed to become useful data. Hence, these data need to be processed by high performance, low power, edge devices. The domain specific application workloads are in the range of 1-1000 TOPS (TFLOPS).
5G will connect edge devices and the cloud. With SDN & NFV, Network Slicing will provide dedicated & secured networks for targeted applications to meet throughput and latency requirements. Therefore, huge opportunities and challenges for start-ups.

Dr. Hsieh serves as VP of Innovation and Investment at Arm. In this capacity, he works closely with Taiwan and Global ecosystem partners, universities and government for various vertical applications including automotive, healthcare, green energy, IoT and server markets.
Dr. Hsieh joined Arm as General Manager of Arm Taiwan in 2014, responsible for Taiwan business operations and management, and also established Arm’s first Asia Design Center in Hsinchu, Taiwan in 2014. Prior to joining Arm, he was R & D President for Freescale Semiconductor China Design Centers, leading the team to manage over 80% of on Industrial and Automotive MCU and application processors design and development.
Dr. Hsieh was a founder and founding team member of several successful Silicon Valley startups including the world’s first Fabless IC design company. He received “The Entrepreneur of the Year” Award in 1990 in Silicon Valley. He also built the world’s first single chip CMOS RISC microprocessor under Dr. John Cocke, inventor of RISC architecture and recipient of US National Medal of Science & Technology and Turing Award, at IBM Watson Research Center. Dr. Hsieh has over 30 years of professional experience in IC design, software development and semiconductor manufacturing.
Dr. Hsieh received BSEE (Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering) degree from the University of California, Berkeley and then obtained MSEE and Ph.D. degrees from
Massachusetts Institute of Technology with the “Best Thesis” Award from MIT EECS Department in 1979. He also studied MBA curriculum at Harvard Business School during his Ph.D.. Moreover, he served as Media Lab’s Advisory Board Director from 1984 to 1987.
