DARQ Power Envisioned to Drive Semiconductor Industry (Q is for Quantum Computing)
The Duality of Technology
Excerpts and salient points ~
+ New technologies impact industries across the board. For the semiconductor industry, the very technologies that disrupt the way companies operate are the same technologies that will be leveraged to create new products and businesses.
New technologies are catalysts for change, offering extraordinary new business capabilities. Distributed ledger technology, artificial intelligence (AI), extended reality (XR) and quantum computing will be the next set of new technologies to spark a step change, letting businesses reimagine entire industries.
+ DARQ technologies will not only change the semiconductor industry, they will also drive business growth. Blockchain/Distributed Ledger Technology will drive improvements via data provenance and faster traceability as well as enablement of compute and Artificial Intelligence(AI) capabilities. AI and extended reality will require custom chips, and quantum computing will bring about a new world of compute engineering.
+ Nine out of 10 (87 percent) of semiconductor executives are experimenting with one or more DARQ technologies already—no surprise, given the semiconductor industry is high-tech.
+ Perhaps more surprising is that 60 percent of semiconductor companies anticipate the combination of DARQ technologies will have transformational or extensive impact on their organization in a relatively short timeframe—over the next three years. That impact will come in varied forms, as each technology moves the needle in its own way.
